In a set of FAQs about issuing the UDIN, the ICAI said that “Chartered Accountants ( CA ) are not authorised to certify Income Tax Return (ITR) as True copy. However, they can make an opinion/ certificate/ report about ITR based on its source, location and authenticity of data from which ITR is being prepared and UDIN is required while doing so.”
