Are you referring to refunds of the excess income tax paid ?

Yes. i had purchased a house last year and had all my IT deducted from my salary before i could show my interest deductions. So the extra tax paid now needs to be refunded. I have not been to the dept, and keep talking to my consultant. He keeps giving me numerable explanations sometimes he says 'the officer is on leave' ,sometimes he says ' the PAN card is from diff ward', then he says 'they keep a few ones for enquiry' and sometimes some thing else.

swapna,

 

If by last year , you mean Financial Year 2006-07 for which you filed your IT returns in June 2007, then you can ask for the status of your IT refund using RTI.

 

Your assessing officer of your ward/circle is himself the CPIO.

 

Just address your RTI application to him accompanied by a application fee of Rs. 10.00 payable by IPO and to "Accounts Officer".

 

Please also go through the threads tagged with "income tax refund".

 

Generally speaking, consultants are loath to use RTI with the IT department because they have to frequently visit the department in cases related to their clients and do not want to antogonise the IT department.

      The CBDT has told the EC that disclosing the verification of election affidavits by the Director General of Income Tax (Investigation) under the Right to Informatio is not “feasible” since it would be in contravention of Section 138 of the Income Tax Act.
      The Commission, in letters written to CBDT in November 2017 and April this year, had sought clarification on whether the poll panel could allow the public to access reports on the verification of election affidavits by the Director General of Income Tax (Investigation) under the Right to Information (RTI) Act.
      The EC, The Indian Express has learnt, is of the view that since a verification report is not an investigation report, its disclosure should not be restricted under Section 24 of the RTI Act, which exempts certain organisations from being covered under this law. This includes the Director General of Income Tax (DGIT).
      The Commission has further argued that such disclosures are in the interest of voters and will empower aggrieved or interested persons (such as losing candidates) to file a complaint or an FIR against the elected lawmaker under Section 125A of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 for providing false information in the election affidavit.
      But in its response sent last month, the CBDT has told the EC that disclosing the verification report is not “feasible” since it would be in contravention of Section 138 of the Income Tax Act. Section 138 prescribes a general prohibition on furnishing any information with regard to an assessee under the IT Act. It has also mentioned that such disclosures are punishable.
