Reset of income tax e filing password

Dear Expert

Before some time if we don't have the secret answer or registered email id we can send the pan details to and we got the password to our new ID. but now they are not sending the password to new ID. How can we reset the password if we do not have the registered E mail id.


Thanks and Regards

You can just wait for Income tax Department to resume validate services or use previous year e-filing acknowledgment number or secret questions to crack the password.

Hi Ravi,

After some over zealous tried to crack password of Anil Ambani, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Amir Khan and Sachin Tendulkar the ITD department has been very tough with resetting of PW.  Now one can reset password with 

a) By answering secret question.  Pw would be reset then and there.

b) By submitting acknowledgement number with corresponding bank account details. On validation the new password will be mailed to regd email id.

c) by registering digital signatures. New Pass word will be mailed to a) existing registered email id and/or b) new email id provided.

No other option is presently available.
