    The extension permitted under section 54 should have been across the board…two and half years for puchase and three and a half years for construction of house..the present notification is not in uniform nature , it is discriminative..

    Professionals or the assessees have no roll in this circular. It is a COVER-up for failure by Inefficint’O’Sys a.k.a. Infosys to deliver even after 24 months and failure of g.o.i. to have gone for L1 sacrificing the Quality.

    So far as one knows, nonetheless, the extant rule that salaried taxpayers (say, e’filing FORM No. 2) should pay SA Tax by the original due date (July 31 !), failing which interest and penalty are leviable has been left unextended !? < open to correction , if me were factually mistaken; if not, is not the Govt., guilty of the dreaded shortcoming of ' selective amnesia'!
    Is the REVENUE hearing ?
