The Income Tax Department can issue refund via 2 modes: Electronically in the pre-validated bank account of the taxpayer or offline via Cheque.
The taxpayer has to file an Income Tax Return including details of taxes paid. Once the ITR is processed the refund will be credited to the taxpayer's account.
Interest on refund is calculated at 0.5% per month on the amount of refund. It is calculated from the first day of the assessment year till the date when refund is credited if the original ITR is filed u/s 139(1). In case of belated return u/s 139(4) then interest will be calculated from the date of filing the ITR till it is credited to the taxpayer's account.
The ITD processes ITR in batches, so once your ITR is processed the eligible refund shall be credited in the nominated bank account within a week from the date of processing.
If the status is 'Refund Failed' then the taxpayer can raise a refund re-issue request on the e-filing portal. If the mode of refund is: ECS- The taxpayer may give correct bank details and pre-validate it on the e-filing portal. Offline refund- Tax payer may give correct details about address.
