I have to get tax refund for assessing year 2007-08. On the incometax Bangalore website I got an email id (firstname.lastname@example.org) to send grievance to PRO. When I emailed them yesterday with all my details and also attached the acknowledgement scanned copy in the email. I received a reply within three hours that I have to wait for couple of months. Can any one help me to know the exact status because I'm not sure when they say "couple of months". I have attached my email and reply from PRO for your reference.
