    Dear Admin,

    Now that you have posted the New Order, kindly either delete my earlier post which seems to be out of place or mention the same that you have rectified the error.

    What is logic to exclude gujarat from this extension? It’s due date was 15 october. Looking to language of notification, this extension is not applicable.

  3. CMA Abhay Sinha says:

    In future also CBDT People should come out of their A.C Rooms and try to feel & understand the actual practical problems faced by us.

  4. Geetha H N says:

    Congratulations to DCA,

    Be relaxed for not able to file ITR and TAR on 30.09.2013. What is not possible through representation before Bureaucracy or Political Lobbying is possible before Judiciary for problems beyond our control.

    Likewise, please take up the issues like Section 234E of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

  5. R S SHAH says:

    Is this the result of any judgement of Delhi High Court ?. How come the CBDT changed its stand after rigidly not agreeing to the court’s request last week to mutually agree with the Delhi C A Society.

  6. Manoj Agarwal says:

    Dear Sir,,

    It seems that, you have inadvertently posted the old Order dated 26-09-2013 instead of New Order U/s 119 dated 24-10-2013, issued by CBDT pursuant to Writ Petition filed by Delhi Chartered Accountants Society in the Hon’ble Delhi High Court. Thanks to DCA!!!!
