    I am an NRI (foreign citizen).
    I have an old tax related issue with Income tax department.
    Recently I deposited with IT Department, 20% on tax due, 20% on interest and 20% on penalty on January 28, 2020.
    I am in the process of obtaining DIN no and file an appeal. I will complete this process and file an appeal before February 20. 2020.
    As per vivid se Vishva’s scheme, dead line for filing an appeal was January 31st, which I missed.
    Is there any way, IT department can consider my case under this scheme and waive Interest and penalty if I pay tax before 31st March. Please let me know whom to ask/contact and what procedure to be followed?
