Tax query for income below 2.5 LPA in India

I am full time emploee working out of India for the AY 2017 - 2018. I had some of my stocks that I sold during this assessment year. 17-18. The profit is negligible with less than 20K.I don’t have any other income. I don’t have Form 16.

I am getting mail from other It to file tax returns. Do I need to file returns? Hopefully no audit required.

Please clarify.

Profit or No Profit, Filing tax Returns makes life a lot easier later on.

Once you start receiving the IT Notice for non compliance, things can get more complicated and time consuming,

A stitch in time saves seven.
