July month has already observed too many due dates for the professional. New forms have also been introduced out of which BEN 1 and NFRA 1 is still a confusion for many learned professionals. Moreover, RBI also changed the e-mail based FLA filing to web based filing for FLAIR from 2019 which will have its due date as 15th July every year. But In view of the recent change in reporting platform for submission of FLA return, the last date for filing the FLA return for 2018-19 has been extended to July 31, 2019 for convenience of reporting this year. This extension in filing is only for the current year.

Also attached herewith the Revised Format of Verification letter and Authority Letter required while filing of form.

Please Note: Additionally attached the web based FLA Format.
