ITR 1 or ITR 2 you'll have to file under certain circumstances. SEE below.If you appreciate this answer please click the forum thanks.
reason why you have to mandatorily file returns is to claim tax refund or set off losses. For instance, if you have suffered losses from stock market transactions and you want to carry it forward to the next year, you must file for a refund, even if your annual income is below the taxable limit, says Divakar Vijayasarathy, co-founder of Meeturpro.com, an online marketplace for tax, legal and regulatory services.
Or it could happen that despite your income being below the taxable limit, your employer has cut TDS (tax deducted at source). Or you earned some money through freelance work and the company deducted TDS at 10 per cent. But since your income is lower than the taxable limit, you are entitled for a refund. For claiming this refund, you have to file a return.

Another case could be if you are earning rental income of more than Rs 1.8 lakh a year. In this case, the tenant has to deduct TDS. So, while you are entitled to refund, if you have no other source of income, you have to file a return to claim the refund, says Varun Advani, chief operating officer, makemyreturns.com, a registered e-return intermediary.
“ITR is a way to legitimise your financial standing and maintain a healthy financial transaction,’’ says Advani.
