    Due to the covid pandemic, Government suggest lockdowns;
    Senior tax professionals try to work from home.
    Lots of problems like internet connectivities; temporary shut down of bank branch due to covid infected staff; Offices and public places are not in full-fledged working condition; Lots of representations about due date extension sent by various tax professional organizations. Many businesses not having a sufficient amount to pay salary to their employees as well as to pay tax or repay loans. Tax professional facing issues related to GST implementation. Many electronic forms/utilities were not available in time. Still, government officials not extend due dates. It may be a lousy image building. Why the government not understand? the public who voted for the ruling party may be frustrated now.

    वा वफ़ा हम हर दम रहे है वफ़ा ही बस कर सकते हैं, वफ़ा तुम्हे गर रास ना आई तो हम क्या कर सकते हैं,
    काश के एमनेस्टी पर भी विचार कर लिया जाय तो हम लूट जाने से बच जाएंगे
    उम्मीदों का दामन अब भी पकड़े रखा हूँ, हमारी सरकार हमारा दर्द जरूर समझेगी

  3. Ramesh Kumar Thakur says:

    जिद के आगे हर निवेदन हार गई, हम भी तो इंसान ही हैं काश हम भी सत्ता में होते तो शीत कालीन सत्र और कोरोना को कभी एक साथ नही जोड़ते,
    शायद वो दर्द जानकर कुछ दुआ ही देदे

  4. sathyanarayanna says:

    IN spite of representations , CBDT , CBIC , has turned a deaf ear to tax payer representations , which includes various stake holders . Tomorrow , there is legation for hearing for postponement should be a boon to CA, Tax advocates , Tax Consultants and CFOS , tax heads .IN spite of pandemic and representation , it is deaf ear .

  5. PRABHAKAR G says:

    feeling ashamed of these repetative requests before these inhuman administrators. Forget about professionals and asessees problems. At least they are not prepared to accept their inability to run the servers properly. Various kinds of server problems like appearing suddenly website not found, sending otps at their own time , no access to download 26 AS, login problems and so many. Every year our life becoming miserable because of these conditions. Inspite of facing all these problems i pray God to give them some soft corner about the public because of whose mercy they are sitting in the positions and ruling the country.
