Respected Madam,

The Economic Cell of RIP, Rajasthan is the coordinating cell between stakeholders and BJP in respect of economic matters, which is looking for the solution of various problems faced by stakeholders.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and its members are partners in “Nation Building” and playing important role in growth of Indian Economy.

We appreciate the efforts of the Government for the manner in which this pandemic has been tackled and country is saved from community transmission phase of pandemic. We also appreciate the extension provided for Audit Report furnishing & Income Tax Return filing of non audit cases upto 31st December, 2020 but due follow mg reasons the due dates various filling should be extended-


The whole world has witnessed and is currently witnessing nightmare of COVID-19 pandemic. Due to COWD-I9 Pandemic, Govt. had imposed PAN India lockdown from 22nd March, 2020. Although country has been unlocked gradually but the severity & fear of this Corona Virus is not yet reduced. Presently country is passing through 6th phase of unlock but still them are many restrictions on free inter — state movement to a certain extent, time to time night curfew imposed in many states has hampered intro state movement also.


The ITR Forms and their utilities were released after 01.12.2020 which leaves only one month time filling the returns.


Most of the offices of the professionals and stakeholders are forced to operate with reduced number of staff and to work from home due to corona related health issues. Access to client data is not available easily. The details required for completing audits and carrying on tax audit and filing the return of income are not being received promptly and thus completion of audit efficiently is taking mom than twice the average time it usually takes for completion of any audit. Further, data verification, analysis, audits etc requires more time and efforts by the professionals.


To conduct the audit efficiently & effectively, Auditor needs to travel to the place of audit= which is very difficult in this pandemic time and exposes them to the risk of contracting this deadly covid virus. Further, the senior citizens including senior professionals and senior assessre are advised to stay at home only. Several Chartered Accountants, Tax Practitioners and their staff have been infected and have not been able to work for minimum of 14 days.


The following compliances fall on the same date which makes the situation very complex and difficult both for the stakeholders and the professional to comply.

ITR for person Non-Audit (FY 2019-20) 31.12.2020
ITR and Tax Audit for others (FY 2019-20) 31.12.2020
GST Annual Return GSTR9/9C/4 (FY 2018-19) 31.12.2020
GST Annual Return GSTR9/9C/4 (FY 2019-20) 31.12.2020
Vivad Se Vishwas Scheme, 2020 31.12.2020
Companies Fresh Start Scheme. 2020 31.12.2020
LLP Modified Settlement Scheme, 2020 31.12.2020

In view of above genuine hardships & difficulties being faced by the Professionals. Trade and Industry as well as other stakeholders we are requesting you to extend the due dates as above. We will be highly obliged and appreciate if a timely and prompt decision (well before the present extended date) is taken in this matter.

Thanking you Madam in anticipation.

Yours faithfully

More Under Income Tax


  1. JOSST THOMAS says:

    I am a Tax Practitioner in Kerala dealing in GST, IT & company matters…etc.. As the Govt of Kerala strictly imposed lock down, quarantine and such other severe COVID measures we are totally in tied conditions. Obviously our office could not function properly due to COVID related issues such as staff and family members affected by CORONA, my mother and wife affected and myself also was quarantined 3 times. Hence we have failed to file several pending GST returns under the late fee waiver scheme, IT returns are still pending, ROC filing under fresh start scheme could not be completed. Really we are under heavy pressures and blames from the clients and accordingly facing worse situations. In this pathetic situation the Representations are highly hopeful and we strongly believe the BJP ECONOMIC CELL can act significantly. Most of the tax professionals all over India are in heavy mental stress on account of failure to meet the obligations in the stipulated time and a lenient action is required in this matter to extend the dates for compliances as stated in the various representations.



  3. Mohan Bagalkot says:

    Unable to go office regularly, very difficult to complete the Tax Returns before 31.12.2020. Extension is very much required till 31.03.2021 if we can travel freely at any place in this period.

  4. Deepak Tharanee says:

    The representation on behalf of businesses and professionals really brings out the genuine hardships faced. The Govt. is requested to consider favourably the requests for extension so that we greatly reduce the stresses faced by businesses, professionals and the staff/ functionaries working with them. This year when the pandemic struck us all is an extraordinary event which requires a softer and caring outlook by one and all.
