    What is the point if the hearing is scheduled for 2nd Nov?

    The Govt is deaf to genuine pleas and hardships faced by the professional bodies towards compliance.

    Even GST annual return was extended on the last day. Is there any point in this?

  2. Zulfakhar Syed Ameeruddin says:

    Thanks to The Rajasthan Tax Consultants Association, The All Gujarat Federation of Tax Consultants and The Chamber of Tax Consultants for all their efforts and hard work !! The Government should respond immediately and extend the time for filing audit reports and the returns thereon.

  3. Sudip Kumar Mukhopadhyay says:

    Ultimately,CBDT will extend last dates for Tax Audit after doing some farce on last date.They should think about mental condition of people who are engaged with this profession.We should not be kept in such anxiety & panicky situation otherwise incorrect returns might be uploaded.
    So many writ petitions will be filed within a few days for extending last dates,but revenue authorities should also think twice for lingering such panicky situations till last date.

  4. Sharad Mohan says:

    It is strange that amendments have been made as late as 1st October which are yet to be incorporated into forms utilities Despite this CBDT is playing dead in the matter of extension of last date. Where is ‘vishwas’?
