Recently some CA students were in news by hacking the accounts of some businessmans. Income tax Department have taken the steps to correct the flaw in retrieving password.

How could any one get the password earlier?

You had to send the mail at validate@incometaxindia.gov.in with some basic details, and department would send you the password. But now this system is not continued and it has become difficult to obtain the password.

Hower other options are available to reset the password. Options available are:

  1. Answer Secrete question
  2. Upload DSC
  3. Enter aknowledgment number and bank details

Now the site is safe and data is safe with IT department.
