    I have question about E-filing ITR 2. I efiled my tax return recently but only ITR-1 and ITR 4s option ware available so I submitted ITR-1 online. However I was suppose to submit ITR- 2. But there is no option to efile ITR 2. I guess I was suppose to upload the form and fill it separately. How do I rectify my mistake- changing ITR 1 to ITR-2. And why ITR-2 option not available in quick efile option. It will be much more easier to file. Thank you
