    This is very strange to see the date is extended exactly before one or two days from the due date. This happens in India.

  3. RVK Iyer says:

    Due to heavy share trading last financial year a lot of individuals are also frantically searching for good ACA for filing of Audited Tax return. ACAs are not take up the case. Government should consider all these and extend the date to end of November this year. It should also consider 2% instead of 8% Presumptive tax for individual share traders.
