That Sir, these due dates fall in the month of October.
October month of 2018 is one of the most hectic and busy month for the stakeholders to do the statutory compliances required to be done under the various act & laws of the land. A few of them are as under:-

We have received a lot of requests from companies/ professionals to submit representation to the concerned Authorities for extension of last date for filing of MCA annual forms for the above noted reasons.
Further, we would like to state that the professionals are also facing problems in XBRL conversion process due to recent implementation of IndAS and lot of pre-scrutiny in XBRL validation Tools.
Furthermore, the applicability of additional fees of Rs. 100 per day on delayed filing of MCA annual documents has been introduced for the first time and extension of last date without levying the said fees will provide much needed relief to the stakeholders.
Hence, we earnestly request you to consider the above noted facts and reasons for considering to grant extension of time for filing the MCA financial statements for the financial year ended 31st march, 2018 upto 31st December, 2018 without levying additional fees.
We shall be happy to provide any further information or clarification that may be desired in this regard by your good office.
An early action in the matter is highly solicited.
