The Income Tax Department also mentioned some cases where refunds are determined but the department is unable to issue them as taxpayers have not validated their bank details.

“There are several cases in which the ITRs have been processed and refunds have also been determined but the Department is unable to issue them as taxpayers have not yet validated their bank account in which the refund is to be credited. Taxpayers are requested to validate their bank accounts through the e-filing portal,” the press release added.
