According to IT Department you will have to pay additional 25% on due tax and interest if you file updated ITR within 12 months. The rates will increase to 50% if it is filed after 12 months or before 24 months from end of assessment year.

If you have filed updated return and have not paid additional taxes then you will not get benefit of updated return and it will be considered invalid. Earlier if IT Department used to find out that taxpayer has missed some income then it used to go through adjudication which is a lengthy process.

The changes have rested more trust in taxpayers. IT Department wants the taxation system to be more easy and convenient and do not want to harass the people.

In her speech Nirmala Sitharaman Union Finance Minister said that, “To provide an opportunity to correct such errors, I am proposing a new provision permitting taxpayers to file an updated return on payment of additional tax. This updated return can be filed within two years from the end of the relevant assessment year.”
