  1. CA DEV KUMAR KOTHARI says:

    In case of need extensions for compliance with statutory requirements should be granted, for a reasonably longer period instead of repeated but short extensions from time to time.. Furthermore, extensions should be notified well in advance. In this case we find that extensions have been granted after 3-4 days from end of earlier fixed limitation and the extension is for short duration. This caused repeated extension causing administrative burden on government departments as well as on tax payer. When there are reasons causing difficulties in filing of e-returns, and some more reasons are also found at different areas, it would have been better if extension was notified for a period of about two months.
