To file the all income tax forms whether ITR1, ITR2, ITR3, ITR4, ITR5 or ITR6 one need to put the PAN number of assessee.

What if the assessee does not have Bank Account?

How to file the return if the bank account number is not available, can we put the bank account number of any other relative of assesee?

If u r filing itr through the excel utility , then quoting bank a/c no is mandatory. However if you r using some tax filing software like relyon saral , you can file itr without a bank a/c. Moreover if u r a refund case better to apply for a bank a/c. U can provide bank details of some other person as well.

Yes you can put the bank a/c no of some other person also. This will be helpful to file return immediately.

Thanks for the replies. But if the account number of some other person is given, will department scrutinize the account of that other person by associating with PAN of assessee?

In any refund case at least two alphabet of the name of assessee shall match. Than only refund will be released.


Please put correct Bank account number, if you dont have put some one else whom you know and in his name and assessee name common two alphabet must exist.


Non refund case put 123456789 some 13 or 14 digit number and file the return.


Yes. IT deparment can scrtunise the Bank account if they think to do so
