Yes , if you are liable to pay the taxes and if you do not pay the tax as per the ITR , the return filed by you can become a defective return as per section 139(9) of the income tax act and the AO may give you a chance to rectify the return within 15 days or more as the case may be . The explanation (aa) of this section specifies  that if the tax is not paid , it will be treated as defective return  and  if it is not rectified , it can become invalid return .

If your income tax liability is expected to be more than 10000, you are expected to pay entire tax amount as advance tax on or before 31Mar2015. Else, u will be charged interest. If the amount is lower, pay tax at the time of filing.
