For assessment year 2015-16, e-filing of returns is mandatory for those whose total income exceeds Rs 5 lakh or if the return carries a claim for refund.

Paper returns in such cases will not be accepted, CBDT has clarified.

However, the income limit of Rs 5 lakh and claim of refund will not apply to taxpayers over the age of 80 years with a salary/pension income.

In such cases, paper returns will be accepted.

The camp has special facilitation counters for senior citizens and the differently-abled.
