More than one lakh income-tax returns have been filed on the new income-tax portal every day since July 24, possibly a sign that the portal's functioning has improved after technical glitches in June.
This number increased to 1.5 lakh on July 27 and 28, The Economic Times reported.
Over 10 lakh people logged onto the portal almost every day over the past two weeks, and more than 5.5 lakh forms were filed between July 13 and July 28, the report said.
Moneycontrol could not independently verify the story.
Technical issues and slow speed continue to be problems on the portal, tax practitioners and tax experts told The Economic Times.
"Prefilling of data in income tax returns is already available and has been updated with the latest data. Additional data on interest, dividends and capital gains will be available to taxpayers shortly," an official told the publication.
Minister of State for Finance Pankaj Chaudhary recently told Parliament that it paid Infosys Rs 164.5 crore to build the portal between January 2019 and June 2021.
