    Instead of Guidelines by CBDT the officials in the income tax Deptt. receiving ITR’S PLAYED ALL TRICKS TO INTENTIONALLY HARESS THE CLIENTS TILL 12 IN THE MID NIGHT WHICH HAPPENNED IN MUFASSILS ESPECIALLY. THEY WERE RECEIVING RETURNS ONE BY ONE AS THERE WAS A OPTION OF BULK RECEIVING. PEOPLE WAITED FOR 8-10 HRS IN INCOME TAX OFFICE TO FILE THEIR RETURNS. that was really really painful.
