INCOME TAX : Gujarat High Court directs the CBDT to consider the due date extension before 12th January 2021. The High Court reiterated that powers given to the CBDT are beneficial in nature to be exercised for proper administration of fiscal law so that undue hardship may not be caused to the taxpayers.

Let an appropriate decision be taken by 12th January 2021
