ITR-V stands for ‘Income Tax Return–Verification’ Form. It is a one page document. ITR-V is received when you file your I-T return online—without using a digital signature. It is sent by the I-T Department. You are required to print, sign and send it to CPC Bangalore to complete your return.
After sending your ITR-V, you can check its status to find out if it has been received and processed by ITD (Income Tax Department) or not. You can go here to check the status of your ITR-V.
