Hi,

Looks like 6 years. Some information on this "“Under Section 119, a taxpayer can make a request to condone the delay in filing of return within six years from the end of the assessment year in respect of which the return is to be filed. So effectively in case of a claim for an income tax refund, you get an extension of five years only as presently also you can file your income tax return for a refund one year after the end of the assessment year.”

You could make use of the well written article here to learn how to get the refunds
