    I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY MY COMMENTS ARE DELETED

  2. deepakkathuria says:

    AS ON 01/10/2015 12.25 PM INCOME TAX SITE HAS NOT UPDATED EXTENTION OF DUE DATE OF RETURN TO 31/10/2015 .
    OFFICIALS WHO ARE IN CHARGE FOR UPDATION INCOME TAX SITE ARE LIVING IN VILLAGES

  3. RAJUL says:

    Can such order be passed u/s 119 as such section is meant for providing relief/ relaxation to the assessee and not rejecting a petition.

  4. CA Mahesh says:

    what a way to tell professionals in karnataka the website and schema needs to be changed for filing that is why not granted extension , now will they change the schema only for gujarat and punjab to inculde 234A,B,C interest .do not know who drafted the notification and reasons for rejection
    CBDT – Confused board of direct taxes

  5. LAKSH MALIK says:

    CBDT WAS TELLING TO DIFFERENT HIGH COURTS THAT THERE WERE VERY LESS CHANGES IN ITR AND TAR THIS TIME. MY QUESTION IS THEN WHY DIDN’T THEY NOTIFIED AND UPLOADED EFORMS ON IST APRIL 2015 ITSELF. DENYING FOUR MONTHS OF EFILING AND THEN BECOMING SO ARROGANT TO EXTEND THE DATE. THE ORDER OF EXTENSION FOR LIMITED STATES IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND WILL NOT STAND IN THE COURT OF LAW. ” EK TOH CHORI AUR UPAR SE SEENA JHORI IS WHAT CBDT HAS DONE”. IF WE ARE LIVING IN DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY, THIS ORDERS OF EXTENSION WHICH ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL WILL NOT STAND .

  6. Ashok kumar sharma -Advocate says:

    very -very poor response by CBDT.Extension should not be granted by Litigation.

  7. Raj Kumar says:

    All professional including assessee have lession that in future not go to court otherwise teach like today

  8. Swaminathan says:

    Why the notification is issued on 30th evening. It released the circular in the evening so that no one approached other high court.

  9. Sudhir Chintawar says:

    High Court judgement of any one State is applicable to all if otherwise judgement is not available. So CBDT’s notifications wrt each HC’s directions is contrary to the acceptable principles.

  10. harshika says:

    IS THIS AN EFFORT BY CBDT TO DIVIDE INDIA IN DIFFERENT STATES.
    IF NOT WHY AN ORDER IS NOT APPLICABLE TO WHOLE OF INDIA .
    INCOME TAX IS NOT A MATTER OF STATE SUBJECT AND IS APPLICABLE TO WHOLE OF INDIA IN TOTALITY.THIS IS NOT A CALAMITY IN ANY SPECIFIC REGION WHERE CBDT CAN GRANT SPECIFIC RELIEF. SUCH BUREAUCRACY IS CONDEMNABLE AT ALL LEVEL AND FM WHO HIMSELF IS A LEGAL PERSON SHOULD REPLY TO ITS IMPLECATIONS

    • RAMAKRISHNA says:

      i had agreed with harshika opinion , CBDT HAS SATISIFED THIER SELF -EGO AND SELF RESPECT . CBDT REPSPONSE AGAINST HIGH COURT JUDGEMENT ORDER OF KARNATAKA IS WELL DECISION IN INDIA. ANY INDIAN GOVERNMENT SERVANT CAN’T TAKE A WONDERFUL DECISION. ACCORDING TO THE DECISION, OUR CBDT CHAIRMAN HAX EXPLAINED SEC.234A,234B OF INCOME TAX ACT TO ENCOURAGE ASSESSEES FAIL TO PAY ADVANCE INCOME TAX. BUT DEPARTMENT TO TAKE MUCH MORE TIME RELASE FORMS OR DECISIONS

  11. Barkathullah says:

    ICAI’s representation to FM was for whole India. For all assessees and the CA (professional) community.
    Hence extension for specific states is not at par. Extension should be for the whole country.

  12. Ramaswamy T S says:

    It is rather unfortunate that the top class professionals, who claim to be “partners in nation building” , seek such extensions, when instead, they should inspire their clients to keep the accounts up to date always and help both the clients and the Government. Instead of taking the lead this way, and also associating with CBDT from the commencement of financial year, going to court is not a healthy partnership. Let us all be more professional and pro actively move along with the Authorities and be of mutual help. Just because we have access to Courts of Law, there is no need to mis-use.

  13. Abhay says:

    If CA’s find it hard to file returns on time, govt should think about giving tax audit to Cost Accountants and Company Secretaries also.

  14. Barkathullah says:

    The petitions and actions by several persons in several states are represntation on behalf of the whole assessee community. Even after the representation from the ICAI, the CBDT has not extended the due date. ICAI is the authoritative body which represents the whole CA community. The CBDT’s stand has shown clearly what response do they have for a professional community of the country.

    No doubt Law of the land is equal for all citizens. But it is important whether the law is for citizens or against. Though all are not against CBDT, sure majority is not happy. By giving extension no citizen is aggreived.

  15. B. J. Bhatt says:

    i have experience that when any government authority gives time up to their work is not completed successful and once their work is completed thereafter they do not want to give any extension of time. This reflects in their recent circulars and further moving to SC against the order of HC directives.

  16. B. J. Bhatt says:

    It is my past experience that Government Authority give extension of time till their work is not completed and when the work is completed thereafter they do not give any further time limit.

  17. mridulpinto says:

    C.B.D.T has taken a Right step in not extending the due date .If there was an Extension in the A.Y 2014-15,It was due to a Valid reason.But People should not take it for granted .Law Of the Land is the Same for all the citizens .Nobody is above the law.When the law requires you to comply with the deadline of 30 th September.You should comply with the same.Giving reasons is not an excuse.You need to have a proper planning and execution .What should be completed on a priority basis .Whether it is individuals or tax audits

    • CA Deepak Soni says:

      THIS GENTLEMAN HAS TAKEN THE APPROACH AS NEGATIVE AND AS DISGUSTING AS CBDT. CBDT NEVER FINISHES ITS JOB IN TIME AND EXPECTS THE TAX PAYERS TO COMPLETE ALL THE JOBS IN TIME.CBDT DESERVES THE STONGEST REPRIMAND FOR ITS MOST LAX AND CALLOUS APPROACH.LET CBDT FIRST DO ITS ALL THE JOBS IN TIME AND THEN EXPECT THE TAXPAYERS TO FOLLOW IT.CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME.

      • Mridul says:

        Dear Ca.Deepak Soni
        If Professionals also follow the same approach as that of C.B.D.T not Completing the work in time ,Then what is the difference between C.B.D.T & Professionals ?.It is the duty of the professionals to complete the work in a time bound manner & Not ask for extension unneccesarily
        regards

  18. balasubramanian. t says:

    very poor response by cbdt while introducing forms to the tax payer. how the cbdt come back to give extension to limited states. they are forgotten other assessee citizen.

  19. M Natarajan says:

    ICAI Should directly knock the doors of Supreme Court and represent the assessee’s problems.Even after this inordinate delay in release of the forms the contents of Form 29 are not proper in the sense that the content of the form relate to only to Companies Act 1956 which is not in vogue. No clarification or explanation has been issued for applicablity of Companies Act 2013 while calculating MAT.It is pathetic situation for the assessee’s and Auditors due to the sorry state of affairs in CBDT.

  20. prasad says:

    At Last CBDT has shown its true color.It aseeds only to stick not to thecarrot..

  21. Sammy says:

    Can someone tell us, if the income tax due is extended in KARNATAKA or not? Do we have to file today?

  22. ALAGAPPAN V says:

    CBDT has punished those have not filed writ petitions. They have have created union of India for punjab Union of India for Gujarath and union of India for karnataka. They are punishing Assessees that too top tax payers in the country with their ego. Why tax payers never react ? it is just because CAs are not as aggressive as advocates. Gentleness is taken for weakness. Please communicate with each assessee about this.

    • Sivesh Karthik says:

      It is of no use unless we communicate our problems through tv or other powerful media, unless we protest like ordinary common man on the streets we will not be noticed. Let us pull all our clients and in turn let each client pull 100 people on the street and demonstrate we will be noticed. I hope there are in bangalore tax consultants who has more than 500 clients. It is high time to open the boiling lid and show that we are professionals accumulating forced and unforced tensions. We can be compared to sugarcane, where between department and clients we are crushed. High time to burst out our emotions and to show the society that we are living with only tensions all the time and not able to lead a peaceful life, I would rather sell a cigar to lead a life, rather than be in this profession

  23. Tousif Khan says:

    any update bombay high court ????

  24. Govind Gupta says:

    What is this going on now a days. Now one more notification has come with the same number that is F.No.225/207/2015/ITA.II (the only changes are instead of 2016 here it is 2015 and instead of government of Incite here it is government of India.

    Which one is correct or both are fake?
    Kindly enlighten us

  25. Lokesh Kumar says:

    CBDT is clever enough to take the difference between Direction and instruction of Karnataka High Court ….
