        Dear Sarthak,

        It might take a few days to get updated on the income tax website after you receive the notice on your email, post which you will be able to upload your revised .xml file on the portal. In case the issue still persists you can submit your grievance via e-nivaran portal on the income tax website after logging in with your ID and Password.

        Regards
        Abhinav
