Today is the last date for Return Filing for the Assessee Including Individual, HUF, partnership Firm Etc whose Accounts are not required to be audited under the Income Tax Act or any other law and also for a working partner of a firm whose accounts are not required to be audited under the Income Tax Act or any other law.

This Year Department has made E-Filing Compulsory For All the Individual and HUF whose Total Income Exceeds 5 Lakh. Last Year This Limit was Rs. 10 Lakh.  This decrease in Limit resulted in more  Rush on Income tax E-filing website which slowed down the e-filing website and people found it difficult to upload the ITR. Even as per department estimate in Peak hours E-Filing rate was 85000/- returns per hour.

  1. K K SARAOGI says:

    Govt. notifies extension of date of filing the return on last day of the due date. They do so because they are anticipating maximum number of person to file the return by 30th July itself. To mitigate tension and for hassle free filing of return, they should come out with notification at least by 29th July.

  2. SURESH CHANDARANA says:

    s, it is very true & also of the fact that due to heavy rains in all parts of India, their is irregular electricity supply & also slow down in net facility,also income tax site not working for 29th july to 1st aug its my & on part of the Indian Nation people hereby request to extend the due date of filing the returns by atleast one month.

  3. som says:

    In case of individuals it is required for lazy assessees who don’t care till the last moment. They can file it even afterwards.

  4. Pradip says:

    Yes. Extension of time required. Its true that I.T. Department provided return preparation utilities 2½ month ago. Tax payer having NIL tax and TDS can file their return in time. But due to non availability of TDS certificates and proper tax credit in PAN taxpayer has to wait.

    • Rani says:

      T.D.S certificate and tax credit in pan are major problem in filing the I.T.R , These problems are offen faced by individual tax payers , if we take all these things , in that circumstances the extension of of 5 days ( due date of filing) is just a drop in occan.

  5. Vinay Joshi says:

    NOT AT ALL!?

    Why should the 5L salaried person who has no dues to be paid / has NO c/f losses
    should BOTHER TO FILE RETURNS before July 31st? TILL MARCH 2014!?
    Can still file thereafter. Will there be any problem?!

    Yes it was wrong that FinMin came out late with its ntfn as advised by CBDT.

    So there is NOTHING to worry!?

    The comments and difficulties expressed by citizen indicate that how we are civilized. However, our civilized citizen are not supported by the department concerned and the webmaster of the CBDT. Extending time is not a solution, off course some web load might be minimized but the taxpayer who have failed to efile their return shall remain in the line and if they failed to file their e-return, the Big-brother may take some uncalled for action. BSNL is also on strike under- this situation what is the utility of extension of time.The Hon,ble members of the CBDT must formulate such system to assess the tax in time and to support their Govt.

  7. A.V.S.RAVI KUMAR,HYDYD says:

    Due date for filing IT return upto 05-08-2013 is not sufficient. This should be extended upto 31-08-2013 due to rains and technical disurbances.

  8. CA ANIL D. SARAF says:

    YES, The Department has to extend the Due Date. Even though the date is extended till 05-08-2013 is not enough. The Site is not performing properly since last Saturday (26-07-2013). And since last two days, there is no excess to the Site.

    Even the date for filling of Audited assessee should also be extended. This year it was made compulsory for Trust to up-load Audit Report on-line and to submit ITR-7 online. The ITR-7 is newly introduced and took lot of time to complete properly (as it requires lot of information).

    Looking to all these complications, the Due date of Return Filling should be extended.

    • Rani says:

      no doubt there is problem in site enough though since two days , but extension of due date is not a remedy , people have to act in time not on time

    • A.V.S.RAVI KUMAR,HYDYD says:

      The due date for filing Income-tax Return should be extended upto 31-08-2013.The date extened upto 05-08-2013 is not sufficient. They are so many number of people to submit the return under this category of 31-07-2013.

    • K K SARAOGI says:

      Dear Mr. Anil D Saraf,

      Requirement of filing ITR-7 for trusts registered u/s 12AA is 30th September as per Explanation 2(a)(ii)of Sec.139. Hence, you can file ITR-7/audit report after 5th August also.

      Thanks & Regards,
      K K Saraogi

  9. Nath Cochin says:

    Yes there is need to extend the dates (atleast till Aug 31st) on the following counts:-
    1. The e-filing process takes more time due to heavy rush for e-filing, due to reduction in limit for e filing (with above 5 L to e-file compulsorily).
    2. The decision of withdrawing the exception (for those having below 5 L income) was known only a few days ago and many are unaware of it and is running to get the Form 16 from employers.
    3. Due to this heavy rush is experienced at IT offices.

    • SANJIV GUPTA says:

      Why taxpayer not filed their ITR in timely they have sufficient time approx.75 days ( May 15 days , June 30 days & July 31 days ) I filled on 19.05.2013 why not other tax-payer filled

  10. Rani says:

    extension of date for Efiling of I.T.R IS NOT WISE STEP IF SOMEHTING UNDUE NOT HAPPEN , LAST YEAR IT WAS EXTNDED DUE TO FAILOUR OF POWER IN ENTIRE COUNTRY.

  11. Viraj Gadekar says:

    Yes the return filling has to be extended atleast for one month

  12. Kavita Kisla says:

    YES, the E-return filing date should be extended as the I-Tax site is very very slow even I could not download Form.
    Hence, I request I-Tax department to extend the date.

  13. munish maheshwari says:

    THAT THE WEB PAGE IS NOT DOWNLOAD. THERE IS NO CONNECTIVITY WITH THE SITE. THE DUE DATE MUST BE EXTENDED FOR AT LEAST 10 DAYS.

  14. Riya says:

    Yes the date should be extended please. The Tax submission and return filing portal is working very slow and it is becoming difficult to submit the returns online.

  15. Javed Mulla says:

    YES BECAUSE SERVER NOT RESPONDING.

  16. CA S N Kolte says:

    Yes, the due date must be extended. We are not able to even log in to the site. Uploading the return has become just impossible. How can department expect assessees to meet the due date in these circumstances.

  17. Gorakh Falke says:

    Yes, the Department should extend e-filing of returns for one month i.e. up to 31st August, 2013 in view of many new assesses who are mandatory required to file e-returns. Even in view of lack of clarity for salaried employees to file return in ITR-1 or ITR-2, some more time should be given.

  18. ADVOCATE PANKAJ LAL says:

    Yes it is necessary to extend the date. Every thing was ok upto 28/07/2013, Monday onwards site is not responsive. One month time must be entended.

  19. CA S L Gupta says:

    as the Income site is very slow & not functioning properly since last 4-5 days alternate arrangement is required for submission/uploading the returns in time

    CA S L Gupta

  20. CA Rohit Saluja says:

    yes,
    The date must be extended as the site is not working properly , may be due to rush, and so many assessees have not yet filed their Return.

    Regards
    CA Rohit Saluja

  21. ATUL KUMAR MANGAL says:

    very huge rush on the website. Date must be Extended.

  22. CA Amrish Raj, Varanasi says:

    Yes, the date should be extended definetly, as the ITax site is totally incapable of withholding such type of loads. Fin ministry should first see toward its infrastructure before issuing compulsory efiling orders. Total failure of the Govt.

  23. NARENDRA KANSARA says:

    certainly. extension is required today at the earliest.

  24. CA. M. Lakshmanan says:

    Yes; it is to be extended because every one finds it very difficult to log-in and even downloading Form 26AS is also taking too much time. As seen in the comments the assessees are also at fault; everyone thinks about filing only at the last minute and dump the auditor’s office with particulars in the 11th hour. How can we expect the website to take such huge volumes? Instead the government can think of allowing rebates/incentives for early filers and the returns should be made available for e-filing right from 1st April.

  25. rakesh didwania says:

    must be extended. cbdt had released forms very late. almost in june end. so the time given is only 1 month instead of 4. the server is too busy. so time limit should be extended by 1 month

  26. HIMMAT says:

    Yes

    due to rain all the schedule are upset and we are not able to update properly

    it should extended ever internet connection also effect in office.

    Himmat

  27. Nayan Rijhwani says:

    Yes, It should be extended else it wil be a major loss to assessees who were not aware of the e-filing condition.

  28. Adv Sanjay Dhabalia says:

    This year new return form i.e ITR’s were released in the month of june and schema to validate returns form 4 was released in the july first week. form no 5 for partnership firm was released in mid july and form 6 in last week of july. What the hell govt thinks of itself the they can take as much time as they want to do their duty and assessee should be prompt and force to do compliance in time. Why Government employees should not be penalized for late release of ITR forms. By 1st april on the start of financial year all the forms should have been made available. MANDATORY MICR IFSC CODE what is use of it where electronic refund payment is not made to the assessee. Govt employees who are responsible for late release of forms should be penalized as assessee are penalized even if late filed for one day…

  29. SATHISHA RAJANNA says:

    YES DUE DATE SHOULD BE EXTENDED. BECAUSE IT DEPARTMENT WEBSITE IS BUSY FROM LAST 03 DAYS NOT ABLE TO VIEW 26AS SO IT SHOULD BE EXTENDED

  30. Pramod Kulkarni says:

    Yes
    Yes it is necessary to extend the date. As the CBDT has came forward on the last second week of the july giving clarification that the income earners less than 5 lakhs

  31. vijay says:

    yas dept site is working very slow from last four days so it should be extended

  32. R.B.Vishwakarma says:

    RB VISHWAKARMA

    Yes, date to be extended due the rain we are unable to get network properly and unable to upload returns.

    Regards
    R.B.Vishwakarma

  33. Ca Rakesh Nahar says:

    yes, the site was slow for the last couple of days. the login and downloading of 26AS was also difficult, even after half an hour constant try, sometimes only we could succeed in uploading. The CBDT shud take utmost care for last hour rush, as the usual habit of general public is to rush in only at the last days.

  34. MAHESH PODDAR says:

    VERY SLOW TAKING ROUND ABOUT 20-30 MINTUES TO LOAD 1 RETURN
    INCOME TAX DEPT MUST DO SOMETHING

  35. Bimal Gunjarwala says:

    Earlier years it was good system in return filing that on 30th Jun for Salary returns, 31st Aug for all those assessees who are not liable for tax audit, 31st october for non company assessee liable for tax audit and 31st dec for all company assessee. It was good system. Further, for individual and HUF liability of filing return on gross income is very strange. Despite gross income is higher then threshold limit but after deductions if taxable income goes under threshold limit, then it must be expempted from filing of return.

    By the way, department site was very slow and still many people would have to file the return, so in that case, due date must be extended.

  36. g satya gowri says:

    S Should be extended due to server delay and TRACES has a problem in downloading tds certificates for salaried emplyoees too.

  37. R Taparia says:

    Extension of date is highly required as department site is almost not functional for last 3 days.

  38. g satya gowri says:

    Yes certainly cbdt should extend the due date.
    we have a problem with traces for downloading the tds certificates for salaries employees

  39. CA. SUNIL BHALOTIA says:

    SINCE LAST 2-3 DAYS INCOME TAX SITE IS NOT WORKING EVEN ON TODAY I AM UNABLE TO LOGIN DUE TO PAGE NOT RESPONDING.

  40. Pranay J Luthia says:

    I don’t see any requirement of extending the IT Return filing date, because in most of the cases Assessee submits the details at last hour which results in delay in filing IT Return, so it is better to put pressure on Assessee to submit the details well in Advance atleast 25 days before due date of Return filing. Our Govt. has already done online Return filing facility which is enough, now it is our time to file the Return well in time.

  41. abhay kulkarni says:

    web site is very slow, not able to log in.

  42. kumar says:

    s it shd be extend

  43. RAJKUMAR PUROHIT says:

    Yes, date should be extended because website of income tax deptt. is very slow & we are not able to upload the return.

  44. RUCHIKA TENDOLKAR says:

    It must necessarily be extended as it is taking 25-30 tries before any return is uploaded from our office. Either it does not open the website or after opening, it does not log-in or later it does not upload saying web-page not available. so there are hurdles in the web-site at each stage. We are practising CA’s and are responsible for filing returns of our clients. If due to reasons beyond our control we are unable to file, the client will be at a loss. These problems are being faced since last 6-7 days. Our internet service provider is Airtel. We do not know if these problems are due to our ISP or the website. HENCE THE DUE DATE SHOULD BE EXTENDED.

  45. Advocate K K Singla says:

    Yes, the due date must be extended by at least 15 days. Not only e-filing other activities which are required on line have become difficult and there is many fold increase in multiplicity of work. Credit for TDS and payment of tax is not being given. The rectification is being rejected time and again. The greivances should be redressed on priority basis.

  46. Advicate Radheshyam says:

    Why the last minute rush? The returns can be prepared and filed, uploaded a little earlier. No body prevents the assessee to file it even 10 days earlier. We should come out of the mindset of doing thanks only at the last moment.
    The date be extended only in genuine exceptional circumstances.

  47. Vishal says:

    Yes, The Last Date have to extend. The First & almost proper reason is Forms are uploaded too much late by IT Dept.

  48. VISHAL SHARMA says:

    Yes, deadline should be extended because website I.T. deptt. is very slow & we are not able to upload the return

  49. mujeeb siddiqui says:

    it is 11:27 and efiling site is looking dead, it is impoosible to compelete the
    task within deadline, so date shoule be definetily extend.

  50. RAJIV ZAVERI ADVOCATE says:

    Sir Time should be extended. Vat returns in Mah had last date June 30 and e file requires lot of time in filling every thing Bank dont give acknowlwdgment immediately hence at least 15 days time should be extended.Also income tax sight does not open and it takes long time.Adv Rajiv Javeri Amravati Maharashtra

  51. CA. Sanjeev Jain says:

    Income tax departments E Filing Server does not seem capable to handle the pressure of E Filing. It is becoming more and more difficult to access the server. Hence they have left you no option but to try and try again. Hence the date extension is warranted, particularly when the income tax department is not ready with the forms and filing procedure even after two months of start of financial year.

  52. CA. SUNIL K GOYAL says:

    Yes, the server is not responding and we are waiting for hours to file a single return.

    However, when it works, the returns are filed at a lightining speed.

    In toto, they should give some relief.

  53. A.V.S.RAVI KUMAR,hYDYD says:

    WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED f16 FROM TRACES TILL NOW.aND DOING NUMBER OF ATTEMPTS TO REGISTER THE PAN IT IS FAILING THE DUE DATE MUST BE EXTENDED.

  54. Adv Shivkumar Dhadd says:

    For last three days the server of IT department is very slow, most of the time the server didn’t respond, I think this due to heavy traffic on the site, hence it is necessary to extend the due date.

  55. Raghunathan says:

    For the last seven days, there was tremendous difficulty in e-filing returns. The uploading could be done only on few days during late night. Leading software sites like Winman put up a scroll saying that the problem is in the income-tax web site and not theirs. Yesterday and today, the server is busy all the time. When the Department knows that the number of e-filing assessees are going to be more, they should have suitably strengthened the income-tax server also.
    If not for any other reason, for the sheer inability to access the income tax portal during the last week, the last date for filing return should be extended.

  56. BHAVIN says:

    As of now at 11 am on 31st July 2013, Income tax efiling site is down then on what basis they expect the public at large to comply with the deadline.
    They have to extend the deadline.

  57. JAIPAL NUNANI-ADVOCATE says:

    Yes:It is the first year for the income above 5.00 lakh required to file return online and there is more technical issues are arise during the filing of return,so it is request to extend the due date of filing the returns by atleast one month.

  58. Balaram A S says:

    Since, last few days, the IT Server is totally “Jammed” Understably. It has become a Herculean Task to file the IT Returns because the IT Server is not able to take the LOAD. Since yesterday morning not a single ITR could be Uploaded. Now, the CBDT has no choice but to extend the DATE of FILING and ensure such inconvenience is not repeated. Also, kindly give a serious thought about the COLOSAL loss of Man Power and Time. Simply because of the IT server not being upgraded to take the LOAD

  59. RAJESH JINDAL says:

    Yes date may be extended by one month because:-
    1. Release of ITR forms in June
    2. CBDT DECLARED TO FILE IT RETURNS OF SALARIED PERSON BELOW 5 LAKH ON 23.07.2013 BEFORE IT WAS EXEMPTED AND HENCE THERE IS HEAVY LOAD
    3. COMPULSORY ONLINE FILLING OF IT RETURNS OF PERSONS HAVING INCOME MORE THAN 5 LAKHS

  60. Devashish says:

    Yes, it is very true website is not working & activation link are not received in time so CBDT extend due date of filling returns

  61. v.mahadevan says:

    I join all who are for extension of the last date fixed for filing the IT Return
    more especially taking view the late issue of clarification. A taxpayer friendly gesture will be most welcome to one and all. The Department in turn will receive a warm applause and greetings from the honest taxpayers.
    Let me pat the Department on its back for having granted extension of time to victims of Uttarakand.
    Sincerely
    mahadevan

  62. DIPAK says:

    PLZ DO IT….WE CANT HANDLE ALL CLIENT SO SPEEDILY!!!

  63. NIKHIL CHHABRA ADVOCATE says:

    Yes Due date should be extend at least for a month as for the last four days site is completely down and not a single return I am able to file even 26AS cant be viewed. So date should be extended

  64. jignesh says:

    Yes, date should be extended because website of income tax deptt. is very slow & we are not able to upload the return.

  65. vipul says:

    Yes, must be extended.

  66. Premal Shah says:

    YES,

  67. CA M Ishwara Bhat says:

    I have been finding it difficult to access to the income tax website for filing returns since yesterday. Early this morning I could file about 10 returns. But now during office hours it is not accessible.

    In a way it is good that assessees aree amking use of the technology. At the same time department also must see that it accomodates the last minute rush.

    The department should not be at fault as it did in the case of TDS. In the case of TDS department has not made sure that ETDS returns are properly filed. But it has made arrangements to give credit only on the basis of 26AS. Lot of tome and energy is wasted in rectifying the orders, regularising the adjustment of refund towards nonexistent demands…etc.

    If the department cannot accomodate the last minute rush, it is better if it extends the time limit…… CA Ishwara Bhat

  68. Jagadesh says:

    CBDT should extend the due date, we are finding it very difficult to upload the return through e filing website and also the limit has been decreased to Rs.5 lakh

  69. CA Asha Sharma says:

    Ya definitelt the deptt should extend the date of filing ITRs. Yesterday the server was not working at all specially the most needed login-page. It took me 12-15 attempts to register digital signature. In whole day ie on 30th July I was able to upload only 02 returns just because the server was not working.

    i think deptt. should extend the due date.

  70. Moiz Bhabrawala says:

    Dear Sir,
    Yes for sure the date for filing of Income Tax Returns must be extended as the ITR filing utility was also made available to us in mid of july for ITR 4 & ITR 5 how can one expect to file the returns within such less time and after such rush on the site. Please extend the same for one month

  71. Piyush makkar says:

    Yes date should be extended as today it has become difficult to log in at efiling site

  72. Anruddh Goel says:

    The infrastructural problems for use of technology to file the return electronically is very poor, particularly in upcountry towns. It is difficult to get connectivity to file the return. The volume of e filing has been increased by making it mandatory for the persons having income more than 5 lacs, and also the salaried employees whose incoe is below 5 lacs but exceeds 2 lacs have to file the return. E filing has been made available for ITR 7 also. Considering these additional filers, the extension of due date is required.

  73. Bhushan Choudhary says:

    Last date to be extended up to 31 st Aug. It is duty of government to provide infrastructure to file the tax returns. TDS CPC not processing correction returns taking 2 months to correct the TDS returns. How can form No.16A to be issued untill correction returns not accepted by CPC

  74. Nilesh says:

    IF site is slow then date must be extended !

    Minimum 1 week & maximum 1 months as to wrap up the pending returns timely

    as in India without deadlines nobody really acts sincerely.

    CMA Nilesh Kucheriya

  75. Ravi Desai says:

    Yes, CBDT Must extend due date because they introduces ITR Very late and E filling turnover limit has come-up at 5 lakh.

  76. Hiral Gediya says:

    Yes because of site problem we are not able to file the return timely so there are two way to solve the problem either site works properly or extend the time for filling of return

    Thank you

    Hiral K. Gediya

  77. CA Koustubh Bhatye says:

    Yes, CBDT must extend the date considering the volume of returns to be filed.

  78. CA Minal Pawar says:

    I feel that the date for filing tax return should be extended on account of following two reasons. 1. The income limit for efiling of tax returns has been lowered resulting in more people accessing the site and leading to overload on tax site and consequent issues in up-laoding tax return. 2. Further, from this year, all assessees have to make payment of taxes before uploading their returns. However, internet banking is not used by all of them and hence online payment of taxes is not possible in all cases. Further, most banks take about 2/3 days to issue the challan and some bank branches still take about 10/15 days for issuing challan. In such cases, it may not be possible to mention details of challan in return and upload the it before 31st July 2013.

  79. SANJAY GUPTA (Accountant) says:

    YES. DURING THE MONTH OF JULY WE HAD TO FACE TDSDEPOSIT/TDS RETURN/ VAT RETURN /EXCISE RETURN/SERVICE TAX RETURN & IN DELHI THE SYSTEM OF VAT RETURN WAS UPGRADED BY DEPTT.BUT NOT STILL WORKING PROPERLY . SO WE COULD NOT PREPARE INCOME TAX RETURNS . SO PLEASE ADVICE CBDT TO EXTEND THE DATE AT LEAST FOR ONE MONTH.

  80. alpa says:

    deadline of july is not as great an issue as the september deadline.
    who is the income tax dept. answerable to if it does not ensure provision of necessary infrastructure on time?

  81. Yugandhar says:

    Yes, due date should be extended.

  82. Umesh says:

    CBDT should extend the due date of filling of return because the site is not working/working in snail pace.

    Before implementation of compulsory efilling for income slab of 5.00 lacs, CBDT should have considered its existing infrastructure whether it will support the peak hour rush or not.

  83. Rajkumar Biyala says:

    Yes, Due to heavy rush on sight due date for filling of return should be extended

    Regards

    Rajkumar Biyala
    Mumbai

  84. Pankaj Trivedi says:

    It should not be extended.
    Firstly it is not much relevant for Salaried employees. (Major volumes) Whatever be the due date they will come on Last days only..
    Secondly we & everyone should know that Last days will not be extended so we need to plan our workings.

    Pankaj Trivedi

  85. Kishor says:

    Yes CBDT has to extended due date of Return filing reason is the amount in Form 26AS and Form 16/16A is not match each other because of this we are not able to find assesses get refund or tax payment.

  86. CA Sagar Soman says:

    Definitely the deadline should be extended. Firstly the Department has made available the ITRs very late and after that they expect the assessees to follow deadlines. There should be deadline on the Departments to issue IT Returns as well and the deadline to file ITRs should be atleast 2-3 months after the Return Forms are published. Even after the unpardonable delay, the IT filing website is working erratically. Then how is it expected from the assessees to file ITRs?

    Further in view of the heavy floods in many parts of India, it is expected to extend the deadline.

  87. Ravi says:

    Surely it has to be / asuaul will be extended. Especially for this year valid reasons are:

    1. Last week only people came to know that even for less then Rs. 5L they need to file the return

    2. Due to some issues in Traces system, downloading of Form 16 – Part B / Form 16 and credit in Form 26AS are taking 2- 3 weeks time to

    3. Last couple of days IT Return website is very slow.

    So surely it will be extended

  88. salimkumar says:

    yes, though i filed on time after making e payment of the self assessed tax apart from TDS, the same is not reflecting in the VAS 26 FORM and my return is filed as “tax payable”. wg=jen i tried to file revised return, the site is not available as of now. therefore i strongly feel that the date should be extended.

  89. Amit says:

    Yes, date should be extended because website of income tax deptt. is very slow & we are not able to upload the return.

  90. S P SHARMA TAX ADVOCATE DARJEELING says:

    It is request to extend the due date of filing of return because rush of e-filing return is very high. on top of that we the Darjeeling people facing the problems of strike called by GORKHA JANMUKTI MORCHA who is demanding separate state GORKHALAND. Beside the above two facts the speed of internet is so slow that it has become impossible to file one simple ITR 1 retun even in one hour. Government should have to look into the matter of INTERNET SERVICES provided by the authorities.

  91. virender nagpal says:

    Becouse of last date some person cont file itr. If u extend the date some more peaple file itr…. Govt. Increase the tax revenue…. kindly extend the due date

  92. Sanjay Pubreja says:

    yes CBDT should extend the due date of filing the returns

  93. N.K.Bajpai says:

    Since the number of assesses who are required to file Income
    Tax Returns online from the present year must have more than doubled,authorities should consider extending the last date by ONE month.

  94. Kishor says:

    Yes i think CBDT the due date of return filing reason is form 26AS and Form 16/16A is not match each other.

    Yes CBDT should extended the date

  96. H.M.Manjunath says:

    We are not able to upload the returns due to problem with the Income tax website.
    We need some more time ,so please extend the due date by another 2 or 3 days.

  97. fasih says:

    yes as you said the traffic for filling the return is huge and it is very dificult to file the return it is a request to CBDT TO EXTEND THE DATE

  98. Badrinath says:

    I feel, since incometax department, has given 4-good months, after 31/03/2013, extension of due date filing is not required.Also, in this age of information technology, time should not be one’s constraint.

  99. YASHWANT MALI says:

    YES IT MUST BE EXTENT UP TO 31 ST AUG 13

  100. ca Dharmendra Mehta says:

    Yes cbdt should increase the number of servers and extend the date.

  101. CA Manoj Anand says:

    Date should definitely be extended as No filing was possible yesterday & even on Monday. Upto Saturday it was proper filling. It was taking more than 50 attempts to upload the data?

  102. himanshoo mody says:

    yes it should since this year there are a lot of changes in returns as compared to last year also the excel utilities had also been available very late .& the no. of assessees filing have also gone up .

  103. Adv Pawan Kejriwal says:

    Yes

  104. sumit says:

    CBDT should Extent the date of filling

  105. CA Rajendra Karia says:

    For last two days I couldn’t log in to efiling site. I have 50 returns to upload. CBDT must extend the date.

  106. leela says:

    I do not think that the date should be extended, as people were given enough time, and even if decision is taken to do so, it should be done with a fine for late submission.

    rgds

  107. sudha says:

    it should be extended, we are finding it very difficult to upload the return

  108. SURESH CHANDARANA says:

    yes date must be extended reason
    1. late release of certain ITR
    2. FROM LAST THREE DAY INCOME TAX WEB SITE IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY
    3. CBDT DECLARE TO FILE RETURNS OF SALARIED PERSON BELOW 5 LAKH
    ON 23.07.2013 BEFORE IT WAS EXEMPTED AND HENCE THERE IS HEAVY LOAD

  109. Vishwa Bandhu Nigam says:

    I think due date of e-filing of Income Tax Return should be extended by CBDT.
    It is because of slow down of website speed and due to decrease in limit of total return number of e-filing of returns has been increased.

    This limit can be max. 7 days.

    Thanks

  110. CA. Yashesh A. Jakhelia says:

    As per my views; as the Maharashtra VAT is keeping one day additional for ePayment the eFiling date should be extended for one more day, atleast.

  111. Karthik V says:

    Yes, If they increase atleast one week it will be good.

  112. CA Vinayak Raghunath Velhankar says:

    The due date needs to be extended by atleast 15 days as most of the returns are to be efiled and assessees have received form 16/16A only at the fag end of July 13.

  113. M.Natarajan says:

    Filing of Income tax returns by salary recipients should be exempted.This is because employers are filing tds returns and the same is furnished to the department electronically. Department has the income details of assessees and this additional filing only adds up paper work for assessee and heavy load on the department server which could be used for more fruitful purpose

  114. Hasmukh Jain says:

    no need to extend due date.

  115. harish kumar says:

    SITE WAS BEING OPEN IN GOOGLE CHROME AFTER 20-30 TRIES. DIGITAL SIGNATURES WAS SHOWING CLASS EXCEPTION ERROR. NO OTHER BROWSERS WERE WORKING. GOVT. STRIVED TO DO EVERY THING ONLINE , BUT FAILED TO DIVERSIFY SITES AND REDUCE THE LOAD. SO IN PUBLIC INTEREST , DATE SHOULD BE EXTENDED.

  116. amar agrawal says:

    We are unable to file return despite of varipus attempt.date must extended.

  117. Manish says:

    Yes, the date should be extended as from 2 days the rush on the sight is very heavy, and we are unable to get access to the site. we are unable to work or upload returns.

  118. S JEGADEESAN says:

    Yes.Because Past two days the website has not been working properly.Better if CBDT extend the Due date.

  119. Vipin says:

    Yes should extend

  120. abhay sharma says:

    yes for sure , as the site is not only slowdown but from yesterday it is not working.

  121. Advicate Radheshyam says:

    Yes. The date be extended till the site opens comfortably at one stroke. The Income Tax site did not open in spite of many efforts. May be due to reasons not known to the filers.

  122. Gurparkar Singh says:

    They should extend the date.Why haven’t they upgraded the system.Even Telephone 180042500025 is not getting thru.Always it says lines are blocked.The Pdf File is not being generated as Excel file too.IT dept should wake up instead of acting as Bureaucrats and Boss only attitude.They bare not helping anyone

  123. K K SARAWAGI says:

    Yes, the Department should extend e-filing of returns for one month i.e. up to 31st August, 2013 in view of many new assessees who are mandatorily required to file e-returns. Even in view of lack of clarity for salaried employees to file return in ITR-1 or ITR-2, some more time should be given. Further, the Department should clarify what they mean by exempt income of more than Rs.5,000/-. Whether it includes allowances exempt u/s Sec.10 r.w. Rule 2BB also or exempt income means income exempt required for reporting purpose only.

  124. KARUNGOPAL says:

    The date must not be extended, because that would make fools of those who took care to file on time. Last-minute rush at the filing website is fairly well-known and must not have come as a surprise to anyone. The areas affected by severe natural disaster have already been given extension of filing date. That must be that.

  126. Sameer says:

    I think yes, definitely, CBDT must extend the date. Since e-filing schema for most of the returns were made available only by mid June. So effectively it has left only one and half month’s time with the taxpayers to file the returns. Why doesn’t CBDT make available the schema for e-filing right on 1st of April every year, so every assessee and tax-practioners (CAs) have ample time for e-filing??
    Also, ITR 6 is made available only by yesterday. So does it not effectively leave only 2 months for filing company returns? In view of this, I strongly feel the date must be extended.

  127. SANJIV GUPTA says:

    No I think that Due date should not be extended , main reason taxpayer ITR filling process start between 15th – 20th July ( at last moment ) If all taxpayer start ITR filing process in May / June. I hope that server will not be busy in July I filed my return on 19-05-2013 & now I tense free.

  128. Ganesh says:

    The return is to be filed for the period 01-04-2012 to 31-03-2013. So the assessee has 4 months of time for preparing the returns and ITR forms are available since last week of May 2013. Still the assessee wants more time means the Government will lose revenue by foregoing the interest u/s.234A. Instead of extending the due date, the income tax law enables the assessees to file even after the due date with interest u/s.234A.

  129. nisar ahmed s says:

    Yes extent ion must because the server is not responding to complete the process.

  130. N.UDAYASIMHA says:

    Probably they had not anticipated such instance.E-filing website had become so slow, login happened after 25 minutes.

  131. Sivasankaran says:

    Yes it is necessary to extend the date. As the CBDT has came forward on the last second week of the july giving clarification that the income earners less than 5 lakhs also have to file their returns.

  132. sujeet kumar says:

    Yes

  133. krishna lokapur says:

    Yes, it is very true & also of the fact that due to heavy rains in all parts of India, their is irregular electricity supply & also slow down in net facility, its my & on part of the Indian Nation people hereby request to extend the due date of filing the returns by atleast one month.

    Thanks & Regards
