If you had no income in that year , then no need to worry ...but know that usually the assessing officer uses this sections when he has reasons to believe that the assesse had taxable income not reported in the filing of return ...Basically, before making assessment/reassessment or re computation of income  under section 147 , assessing officer shall serve on assesse a notice under section 148 requiring him to furnish a return of his income of which he is assessable corresponding to the relevant assessment year even if he has filed return within section 139 within such period...                    <br />                                                                                                                       <br />   NOT APPLICABLE - CASE 1 - The provisions under section 148 require that you furnish the return of income using section 138 within the time line specified i.e 30 days as i can see from the notice served on you  else you will attract interest under section 234 (3) for late filing of return or not filing of return , if the income has already been determined under section 143(1) or assessment ha already been done under 143(3)(Regular assessment)  or 144 or 147     <br />                                                                                                                       APPLICABLE - CASE -2 - On other hand  if assesse has not furnished the return of income ( your case)for the relevant assessment year and no assessment was done under section 144, then interest for late filing of return  in response to a notice under section 148  shall be leviable under 234(1) instead of 234(3)                                                                                                       I advise , you use the offline utility and  file the return using section 148 ( upload xml ) and  and meet your assessing officer for initiating the proceedings ...more often than not this is the best way out and lets the assessing officer know that the assesse is honest and willing to co-operate in the case . Suppose, during the proceedings it is found that there is no taxable income for the relevant assessment year , he will get his order rectified . However , if he proves to you that there was taxable income not reported in filing then the the penal interest and the taxes will apply (Check attached picture for understanding the section under which the return of income has to be filed ...fill it properly showing income from relevant heads and also check 26 AS for any discrepancies in amount paid /credited ).
