While efiling of Income Tax Returns had been allowed some years back, individual tax payers were unable to benefit from it till now because of:

1) unawareness, or reluctance to embrace electronic submission
2) requirement of digital signatures, submission without which made efiling unattractive
3) complex formats in which the information was to be submitted to IT Department
