Tax Community and professionals has made the above demands also to Elected Representatives, CBDT and Finance Ministry by writing on social media, Websites, giving written representation and sending email to all the concerned authorities but all such efforts failed to gain any result.
Further many tax professionals has also commented on Face book page of ICAI President CA. K. Raghu requesting to make presentation to concerned authorities for extension of due date of ITR and also questioned the benefit from extension of due date of TAR without extension of due date of ITR, which has not elicited any response from him till yesterday.
In view of the same some of the members of ICAI has decided to fight the issue of extension of due date of TAR without extension of TAR due date on there own and filed an appeal in Delhi high Court on on Friday 5th September 2014 vide Mahesh Kumar & Co. vs. UOI and Others in Court no 2 of Hon’ble Mr. Justice Badar Durrez Ahmed and Hon’ble Mr. Justice Siddharth Mridul. Writ Petition was listed for Monday 8th September 2014 vide Diary no. 162371/2014. W.P.(C) 5990/2014 and placed for Final Hearing hearing on 15th September, 2014.
Notices issued to Union of India through Revenue Secretary & Chairman CBDT for final disposal of WRIT on 15 September 2014.
In addition to above it has also come to our knowledge that CA Rajni Shah from Gujarat has also filed a writ in Gujarat High Court against the extension of Due date of Tax Audit Report without extending the due date of ITR.
It has also come to our knowledge from unconfirmed sources that Some of the members of ICAI are also in the process of Filing a Writ in Rajasthan High Court.
We hope the good sense will prevail and CBDT will atleast extend the due date of ITR to 30.11.2014 for Tax Audit Cases for AY 2014-15, if it cannot deffer the implementation of Revised Tax Audit Report to A.Y. 2015-16.
