In case a taxpayer finds some error or lack of essential information or renders an incorrect declaration in the initial income tax return filed, the same may be corrected within the specified time period through the income tax department's e-filing platform. A revised ITR can be submitted at any time during the appraisal year or prior to the assessment, whichever is earlier. If the initial report is submitted in document format or manually, then legally it can not be modified online.
