I know that due date of filling of online return under DVAT is 25th day of end of the quarter. But I have not found any provisions regarding the same. As per rule 28(3) its mentioned that return to be submitted in department with in 28days with required documents but regarding online due date there is no specific provision. Kindly tell me the provision regarding the filling of online return ???

Rule 28(3) clearly states "A return referred to in sub-rule (1) or sub-rule (2) shall be furnished by transmitting the data in the return electronically on the Departmental website and thereafter submitting the Return Verification Form in Form DVAT-56, in duplicate, in the manner stated in Rule 63. Such return and the said Form shall be furnished by the dealer within twenty eight days from the end of the tax period. On submitting of Form DVAT-56, the Commissioner shall issue the acknowledgement with signature and stamp on one copy of the said Form"
Hence, it applies to online filing of DVAT return.
