However, there is no need to panic. While filing our income tax return for the passed by financial year, we can mention all our incomes and claim deductions. In end of the online form it will show what is our actual tax liability and how much tax we have paid or been already deducted. Further, it will also show amount of tax to be refunded.

If your tax refund amount is more than Rs 100 then Income Tax Department is bound to pay you refund. For refund you should have filed and also verified your income tax return. In case there is delay in refund then as per ruling of High Court on date 14 March 2013, Income Tax Department is bound to pay your interest at 0.5% per month or 6% percent per annum starting from 1st April of the assessment year. However, delay should not be because of return filer.

If amount of claim is less than 10% of the total tax due then department is not liable to pay you interest.
