filing for tax returns has been made mandatory, you can claim the refund while filing your return itself. That is why you must mention your bank account number and the bankISC code while filing the return.
But if you have not claimed refund while filing the return, you can still file an application for claiming tax refund using Form 30. "This was the common way to claim refund when filing for returns was not mandatory and you had to follow the assessing officer personally to claim refund
