    But, 29,30,31st are bank holidays and how to make self-assessment tax payment. Since 31st mar 2018 is last date for both yrs FY-2015-16 & 2016-17, and also there is continues bank holidays, isn’t it justifiable, if last date is extended by at least a week for so many of tax payers and also good govt. revenue.
