The name and the images resemble the Income Tax department. The mail / SMS includes a link to the website where you need to enter information and request for Refund. If you click on the link, It loads a webpage that looks like the Income Tax Website and you might think that the stuff there is genuine.
The website asks for Account related Information such as Credit / Debit card details including Number , CVV, Expiry Date and PIN.
