The e-Nivaran scheme has been envisaged for online registration of complaints and grievances related to income tax. The Government of India launched the scheme to resolve grievances related to income tax in a time-bound manner, with paperless filing and resolution of grievances.

Grievances related to PAN card, income tax returns, income tax refunds, TDS issues, delay in refunds, tax return scrutiny issues, tax notices and other issues can be resolved through this scheme.

How the scheme works

All online and offline (physical) complaints that are received are integrated by this unified grievance management system. The e-portal, after looking into the grievances, decides the domain to which they belong to and transfers it to the department concerned.

The complaints received are then monitored by the income tax officers (assessing officer / supervisory officers) who make sure that the complaints are resolved. The system works by tracking and keeping a record of the origin of the grievance until it reaches its logical conclusion for final resolution.

Categories of grievances for resolution

Income tax refunds

Rectification

Non-receipt of communication

Request for intimation orders

Grievances related to assessing officer

Other grievances related to income tax matters
