  • The claim of refund is correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.

Why Taxpayers Receiving this mail:

Because there is a difference between Deductions claimed in ITR and deductions shown in Form 16 issued by the employer.

Now understand with an example:

Mr. X had taken house property on loan and he is paying EMI (Principal + Interest) so he can claim the deduction under section 80C for Principal portion and for the interest portion under section 24(b).

Mr. X is an employee so he needs to furnish the above detail to claim the deduction. If Mr. X has not furnished the above details to the employer.

But while filing ITR Mr. X claimed deduction. Deductions claimed in form 16 and while filing ITR is different now. This difference results in mail from Income Tax Department (CPC).
