As per current income tax laws, the time limit to process ITRs by the tax department is within one year from the end of the financial year in which ITR was filed. Thus, your ITR must be processed by March 31, 2021 for the return filed for FY 2018-19.
Once your ITR is processed, the income tax department sends you an intimation notice.
