What could be the reasons for not getting a refund?
The Income Tax Department says that the department is in the process of communicating with the taxpayers who have not yet received their refund for the assessment year 2020-21. This will require the response of the taxpayers. According to the department, in most cases, adjustments under section 245 and mis-matching of bank accounts can lead to failure of refunds.
