First, you should check Form 26AS for last two years. It has a section for refunds at bottom. See if it has a mention of refund.

If there is no mention of refund amount, Please write a letter to assessing officer and get a receiving of same from income tax office.

If after 15-20 days you don't get any reply, file a RTI asking for refund details. They will have to respond to that for sure.

You can see form 26AS on this page: If you don't have account on income tax efiling website, you can create one with your PAN details.

Yes, thanks I checked it. And there is no mention of refund for AY 2011-12.So I will have to write application. Secondly, I noticed strange thing that in the Form 26AS for AY 2010-11 they have mentioned refund of 2008-09 and not of that yeare. Sop again Iw ill have to write application? Lastly, is there any email address we can send application on or one has to go to the IT office only? Also let me know what details we shoudl mention in the application.

As such there is no email Id for income tax officer to take complaints. You will have to go to local tax office only. You should mention your PAN details, refund amount details, date of submission of returns etc.
