    Extension of due date extendable on or before
    the due date , otherwise it is value less.

    Shame shame CBDT shame shame

  2. Ujjal sinha says:

    What are the benefits regarding extension granted by CBDT on 1/10/2015 after 12 noon.

  3. Jitendra Patel says:

    Mr Jaitly was rejected by public in election. Now I think most of Chartered Accountants loose his respect.

    • RiddhiSiddhi says:

      Mr. Jitendra Patel & like minded

      First of all tell us, connection between losing election & not extending due date of returns????..

      You people are so arrogant while posting here & there…

      It may be case for FM that this matter is not so important in his agenda… He is a FM of Country & not ICAI or Accountants… than why are you blaming FM??… CBDT is in-charge in Tax Administration directly….. Section 119 empowers CBDT…. than do not blame FM…

      As far as the CBDT is concerned, they also have right to plead themselves what they think right or wrong…. every citizen (& there is no exception for accountant fraternity) have duty as well as right to avail the Judicial Procedure for Justice (if they feel of injustice done by anybody).. After the justice process complete at one level, that judicial order has to be obeyed by everyone. The CBDT followed the same & done accordingly…

      If you think you seek something from government &/or judiciary and you will be given instantly than my dear friends you all are wrong in this perception… you have to deal with the Law of Country & accountant fraternity are not above the Law of Country…

    ab jaage kya faaydaa…. jab chidiya chubh gayee khet!!

    • Shailesh says:

      Read the notification carefully—-where is the extention of date ——– its talk about TAR & ITR may be filed upto 31st Oct 15, which the assessee have no choice but to file, and that can be filed within 2 years time. So where is the legal immunity in this order. I fail to understand. Can any one correct me.

  5. NEERAJ SHARMA says:

    Government of India Ministry of Finance Department of Revenue Central Board of Direct Taxes
    Subject: Extension of date for filing of Income tax returns and tax audit reports to 31st October 2015 – regarding
    The issue of extension of last date for e-filing returns of income and audit reports u/s 44AB due by 30th September, 2015 has been the subject matter of litigation in various High Courts across the country. While some High Courts have ruled in favour of the extension of due date, some others have ruled otherwise. In order to avoid discrimination between taxpayers residing in different jurisdictions and to be fair to all, and also in view of paucity of time to approach the Hon’ble Supreme Court by way of Special Leave Petition, the Government has decided that across the country, all the returns of income and audit reports u/s 44AB which were due for e-filing by 30th September, 2015, may now be filed by 31st October, 2015.
    Necessary order u/s 119 of the Income-tax Act, 1961 has been issued by CBDT in this regard.

    • Biju Paul says:

      Thank God… At last Government of India agreed and walk with the mind of the public. Its very sad to say that the Government which was elected by the people to rule them never listen their cry???? Just ask for 30 days extension only!!! How many days and how many hours of the Hon. court???

  9. mukesh says:

    TO PM FM CBDT and ALL those who contested the matter in various High Courts ~ Thank you for the extention ~ at last there is solidarity prevailing in democracy ~ this is the time to be of mutual help to each other and look after all as one and not to discriminate. When you walk together you grow. There is always a way of dialogure rather than conflict. It is a GIFT to Tax Payers on the Occasssion of Gandhi jayanti. Dear Friends, start cracking no more extentions ……………… ha ha ha LOVE YOU ALL.
