In an effort to bring about relief to the taxpayers during the coronavirus outbreak, the Central government has officially extended the date to file revised, belated income for the financial year 2018-2019 to September 30, 2020.

Earlier, the date for filing income tax returns was July 31, 2020. The Central government further provided relaxations for senior citizens on interest payments on self-assessment tax.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT ) in a tweet stated that it was extending the deadline for filing Income Tax Returns (ITRs) till September 30 in view of the coronavirus situation, further issuing a notification. At first, the date for filing the ITR was March 31. It was later extended to June 30. After that, the deadline was again extended to July 31 before being extended again to September 30 as of now.


Since the lockdown has disrupted all financial transactions in the country, the government has also appealed to banks to make their transactions online as much as possible.

Meanwhile, as the Centre authorizes guidelines for Unlock 3, Maharashtra government on Wednesday, extending its current lockdown till August 31, issued guidelines for 'Mission Begin Again'.

Under these fresh guidelines, apart from the current relaxations, malls and market complexes have been allowed to resume operations from August 5 without theatres, food courts, and restaurants being operational from 9 AM to 7 PM. The guidelines have not mentioned anything on reopening religious places which are to remain shut across the state.

However, yoga institutes and gymnasiums are to be allowed to open from August 5 as per the SOP issued by the Ministry of Health even though schools, colleges, and coaching institutions are to remain closed as of now. The ban on all types of functions and large congregations is also said to be continual.
