Why do we have to Pre-validate our Bank Account?

To ensure the smooth receipt of your Income Tax Refund, it’s essential to pre-validate your bank account on the e-Filing portal. The Income Tax Department mandates that refunds are issued only to pre-validated bank accounts linked to your PAN. Here are the services provided by the “My Bank Account” section on the new e-Filing portal, which you can access post login:

  1. Add and Prevalidate Bank Account: Add your bank account details and complete the prevalidation process to make it eligible for receiving tax refunds.
  2. Remove Bank Account: Remove a closed or deactivated bank account from your profile.
  3. Nominate Bank Account for Refund: Choose a validated bank account to receive your Income Tax refund.
  4. Remove Bank Account Nomination: If you no longer wish to receive tax refunds in a particular account, you can remove its nomination.
  5. Enable or Disable EVC: For individual taxpayers, you can enable or disable the Electronic Verification Code (EVC) for your validated bank account.
  6. Revalidate Failed Bank Account: If the prevalidation of your bank account fails, you can attempt to revalidate it.


To utilize the “My Bank Account” services on the e-Filing portal effectively, taxpayers must meet the following prerequisites:

  1. Registered User: Ensure you are a registered user on the e-Filing portal with a valid user ID and password.
  2. PAN Linked with Bank Account: Your PAN must be linked with the bank account that you wish to prevalidate.
  3. Active Bank Account: The bank account should be active and must meet the following conditions:
    • Linked with your PAN.
    • Linked with a registered mobile number (mandatory) and email ID (optional).
