Recently, a case had come to light wherein a beneficiary was reluctant in submitting / uploading his father’s Form 26AS and was insisting on submitting ITR V in its place by quoting concerned paragraphs of Annual Validation Policy. This was because he probably wanted to hide the non-taxable income being received/ deposited in his father’s account.

The option of submitting Form 26AS or ITR V as proof of income was initially given to assist in smooth implementation of Annual Validation Policy. Now that the policy has matured, the option is being revoked to prevent misuse.

Henceforth, only Form 26 AS will be accepted as proof of income for beneficiaries holding PAN Card. For beneficiaries not holding PAN Card there is no change in the policy. Fwg amendment is to be made in para 6 (b) (iii) of letter No B/49711-NSC/AG/ECHS/Gen Corr dt 06 Jul 2022:-

(iii) In case PAN Card is available for the chosen dependent, then only Form 26AS for preceding two consecutive financial years will be uploaded.
