What is the time that is normally taken by IT department to process the returns. I had file ITR of a client for AY 2012-13 & 2013-14 in November 2013. Each ITR had a refund of around a lakh rupees. Kindly let me know should i meet some one in the department for speedy assessment.

If you filed your ITR online then no need to meet anyone. ITR will be processed automatically without meeting any officer.

Normally ITR is processed within 3 months if filed within due date. If ITR is filed after due date and with refund then it takes a little time.

Generally if filed after due date ITR takes upto 6 months, however depending on the type of return and amount of refund the return may take more than 6 months to get processed.
