  2. Pawan Khanna says:

    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.

  12. Abrar Shaikh says:

    Last minute rush to file audit report will definitely increase the load on server to a great extent which may result in slow response of server or worst a server crash. Therefore it is always in the interest of public to grant few more days so as to prevent public from inconvenience and late filing penalty.

  13. amir ali says:

    what is 8% rule for audit….



  15. V V GURU MURTHY says:

    Why this sort of things happens at INCOME TAX DEPARTMENT ITSELF WHICH IS ABOVE BOARD. What action is going to be taken against Mr. Upmanyu Reddy by the Government/Income Tax Department. The lesson which all the people should learn is not to extend the due date in future. Regards, Guru Murthy V V

  16. A V BHADKAMKAR says:

    Your above circular is silent in the matter below.

    Is Govt. trying to find out who has done this mischief?

    What will be the punishment to the culprit under the Law ?

  17. Heramb says:

    Now even date is extended, there should file Reverse PIL. Such PIL should deny extention and should question CBDT “why penalty should not be levied for delays in declation of extention”
