    If there is no income or the income is below the taxable limit, in that case it is not mandatory to file income tax return.

    Many student while during training or internship files their return by showing tuition fees income in other sources near to taxable limit,,,

    Please suggest whether it is a correct way for filing return,,,,,
    because they are giving tuitions but files their return,,,,,,,

    Thanks and regards

    Yes, that is allowed.

    Below 2 Lakhs - filing return is optional.

    Sir, my question was incomplete ,,,, sorry for that,,,
    They are not giving tuitions but file their return with tuition fees in other sources upto taxable limit,,,,

    Is this correct way to file itr without having actual income,,,,?

    They may be receiving the tuition fees in cash and in such cases it gets very difficult to prove whether the tuition services have actually been provided or not...

    Moreover, this is also not a case of under-disclosure of income.
