We found following Email Circulating on various websites which claims to be forwarded by a Known member of ICAI :-
Inspite of strong representation from us as well as various Associations and ICAI, on the basis of the talk and discussion prima facie it appears that date of filing the Return of Income of 30th September, 2013 will not be extended. The main reason or hesitation is sharp fall in the collection of revenue as well as further loss by way of collection of tax deferred by one month, which is termed “Revenue Foregone”. In view of this Members are requested to go ahead with filing of Returns for which due date is 30th September, 2013.
However, it also transpires from the representation and discussion made that the date of Uploading the Tax Audit Report (3CD) is likely to be extended from 30th September to 31st October, 2013. The notification of the same may be received shortly.
All the Members are requested to see that Returns of Income are filed and Uploaded before 30th September, 2013.
Wish you all a happy, busy and hectic September ending!
Editors Note – Above news seems to be a rumor in the name of a Known CA. All are requested to wait for official notification from ICAI or CBDT.
