CBDT Press Release On Extension Of Due Date For Filing ROI Upto 05.08.2013

The CBDT has issued a Press Release stating that the due date for filing of returns u/s 139(1) of the Income-tax Act, 1961 is extended to August 5, 2013

PRESS INFORMATION BUREAU

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA

AS A MEASURE OF TAXPAYERS CONVENIENCE, LAST DATE OF FILING OF RETURNS EXTENDED TO 5TH AUGUST, 2013

New Delhi: July 31, 2013

Shravana 9, 1935

There is an unprecedented surge in number of returns being e-filed during this year. 92.03 lakh returns have been e-filed up to 30th July, 2013 which is 46.8 % higher than the returns e-filed during the corresponding period of the last fiscal year.

Due to large number of taxpayers accessing e-filing website on due date of filing, some cases of taxpayers not being able to access the e-filing portal have been reported. These problems are primarily due to network constrains of the local internet service providers (ISPs).

However, as a measure of taxpayers convenience, it has been decided to extend the due date of filing of returns from 31st July, 2013 to 5th August, 2013.

Taxpayers are requested to avail of this extension of time and file their returns after paying due taxes.

    On 1st August 2013 the server was down and on 2nd August 2013 the server down till 2. I hope the CBDT will be magnanimous to extent the due date for filing the return by 16 hours (@ of 8 hours per day). Again if the same situation continues they may extent in terms of hours and not day.

    The CBDT has been magnanimous in extending the date by 5 days. The web site was down for more that 5 days. Even today i.e., 1st August 2013 it is not working. God only knows whether it will work for next five days.

    We can only foresee Sunami like situation during Sept 2013 when we have file audit case returns.
