With the help of various e-statements i.e. SFT/TDS/TCS filed , the information of financial transactions of taxpayers is gathered, collated and is made available electronically to the taxpayer through the Annual Information Statement (AIS). 

Taxpayer is now facilitated to raise an objection to a transaction reported through the AIS. In case of an information which is objected to by the taxpayer, To resolve such issues, a quick electronic response is needed to the communication sent under the e-Verification Scheme, 2021. 

The deductors have been requested by CPC(TDS) to avail the PAN authentication facility to help you report correct PAN in the transactions reported. (

The salient features of the e-Verification Scheme, 2021 are as under:

1. Information gathered from Source/ Reporting Entity is pushed to taxpayer for viewing in AIS and taxpayer can raise an objection if he/she believes that the transaction is incorrectly attributed to the taxpayer (fully/partially).

2. Commissioner of Income Tax (e-Verification) [henceforth referred as CIT(e-V)] pushes the disputed information back at the Source/ Reporting Entity for confirmation.

3. If Source/ Reporting Entity agrees that information uploaded was incorrect and agrees with taxpayer, then CIT(e-V) closes the matter. Source/Reporting entity is required to modify the statement in which the incorrect data was filed.

4. If Source/ Reporting Entity stands by the information and reports back to CIT(e-V) then the case is sieved through Risk Assessment module.

5. If required to be verified, the Directorate of Income Tax (I&CI) will contact the taxpayer and verify the transaction with reference to the return of income filed/ not filed by the taxpayer.
6. Based on the response of the taxpayer to the proceedings under the Scheme, the Source/Reporting Entity may be contacted once again, if required, by the officer in Directorate of Income Tax (I&CI) who is conducting the verification.
