If I have paid excess tax, how will it be refunded to me?
You are eligible to receive an income tax refund if you have paid more tax to the government than your actual tax liability.
Process to claim a tax refund: In order to claim an income tax refund, it is mandatory to file an ITR. Once the I-T department verifies your ITR and the refund claim made by you, it will communicate the outcome to you. If you have filed ITR electronically, the I-T department will send you an e-mail or an SMS. Refund, if accepted as due, will normally be credited to the bank account you had mentioned for this purpose in your tax return.
