Online recharge site Paytm adds income tax return filing feature

12 Jul, 2013, which currently enables one to pay prepaid mobile phone bills online, DTH and data card recharge, postpaid bill payment, NH-8 toll-card recharge and bus ticket booking, has added a feature to its site which enables users to file their income tax return online.

The company has partnered with New Delhi-based ClearSharp Technology Pvt Ltd, which provides a platform to process the payment.


The feature is currently free. A user needs to key in his/her email id in the column provided in the Paytm platform. He/she will receive a password. As soon as the user logs in with the password, it will take him/her to another page where he/she needs to enter personal information, income sources, deductions, etc. One can also upload his/her Form 16. The user can file tax returns for multiple users.

In January this year, the company launched a mobile app which has seen more than 1 million downloads on its Android platform.

In April this year, Paytm, the consumer brand of One97 communications, has, added paid coupons to its 'bonus' offerings that users get when opting for online recharge/s.
