  • Your mobile number (mandatory) and email ID (optional) should be verified by the bank.
  • Your mobile number registered with the e-filing portal should be the same as the one verified by the bank. If they don’t match, you’ll need to update your mobile number in your e-filing profile or with your bank to ensure consistency.
  • EVC should not be enabled for any other bank account already.
  • Your bank should be integrated with the e-filing portal. You can find the list of integrated banks on the “Login with Net Banking” page.

If the above conditions are fulfilled, EVC will be successfully enabled for the selected bank account, and the status will be updated to “Validated and EVC enabled.”
