You only have to submit copy of acknowledgement of Income Tax return filed.
No need to submit bank statements right now.
Sir, In the present case we need to see the letter received from IT Department. Then we can suggest/advise you accordingly.
Mail us the copy on email@example.com
Based upon your details it is difficult to ascertain under which section have they sent you a notice and for what purpose are the demanding the details.
We would be in a better position to guide you, if you provide us with further information.

A notice may be received from the assessing officer requiring to file a return of income u/s 139(2) or 148. This is a statutory notice. If this is the case, you can respond saying that you filed a return of income already and that may be treated as a return filed in compliance with the notice issued. There is no need to furnish bank statements at this stage. You may need to furnish bank statements only if the assessing officer requires it during the course of hearing.
A letter may also be received from the Ministry of Finance on the basis of high value transactions reported through AIR (Annual Information Return) filed by Banks/Companies/Sub-registrar etc. This is not a statutory notice but is an enquiry requesting you to give the details of returns filed by you. However, if you do not respond, the investigation officer may issue notice depending upon the value of transaction. If you have received letter like this, you may give the details of returns filed by you. Here also there is no need to file bank statements at this stage.
