i got this message earlier today. i ignored it because i know about it and i thought they probably have my number in records from my last filing.

samm got it too. and he is not really a tax payer (i think).

it means only one thing.

Our beloved Income Tax Department actually mass mailed it to bulk mailing lists?

Now that you mention, I really think so. Reason being that the IT department has my OLD number, not the new one since I haven't filed anything yet. Unless they have got it through banks / other sources, there is no way they could ask me to check on the status of 26AS

I think my mom and dad too got these messages from IT. They checked the forms yesterday.
