Note: all the above extensions are planned in view of the New ITD portal to be launched from June 7, 2021.
According to me, such a new ITD portal is planned with the objective and purpose of generating pre-filled IT returns of all the Taxpayers or a certain class of taxpayers………………..to auto-populate the details of Dividends, Bank Interest, Banking Transactions, Banking account details, listed securities trading details in Shares, Mutual Funds and any other securities and any other relevant information that may flow in from SFT forms filing, etc.
All of us need to watch this space and development very closely as the new system will bring new challenges and opportunities for us and we need to plan our working systems accordingly. I am sure we are gradually taking baby steps by gearing up for faceless revenue assessment systems in times to come and I don’t see the above dates getting deferred further in the future under any circumstances considering precedents of dates announced for various tech initiatives.
