Central Processing Centre (CPC) gets new Pin Code
The Department of Post has allotted a unique pin code for the Income Tax Department’s Central Processing Centre (CPC) based in Bengaluru so as to ensure that the letters and mails sent by taxpayers to the CPC are not lost or reach the centre late. The new pin code given to CPC is 560500. Earlier, the CPC was using the pin code 560100 which was marked for the entire city area of Bengaluru. The new pin code will cater exclusively to the CPC of the Income Tax department and will help in addressing the grievances of the taxpayers with respect to the issues of non-reaching of postal mails.
The CPC is the central database centre of the Income Tax department based in Bengaluru. It receives both e-filed and postal Income Tax Returns (ITRs), which it processes for issuance of refunds. It also deals with other tax related documents of a taxpayer.
