I have a query if the March month tds can be deposited till 30th June, when can one file tds return for the same as return due date is 30th May... Will there be late filling fees of Rs 200/- day as the Tds has been deposited on 30th June?

There is no extension for payment of March month TDS. Due date still remains at April 30, 2020. However, where TDS is paid after the due date, instead of existing penal interest rate of 1% p.m (12% p.a), a lower rate of 0.75%(9% p.a) will have to be paid.
However, TDS returns can be filed till June 30, 2020 without any late fees

Due Dates for Action based compliances like filing of TDS return has been expressly extended to June 30, 2020 by the Taxation and other Laws (Relaxation of Certain Provisions) Ordinance, 2020. Refer section 3(1) of the Taxation and other Laws (Relaxation of Certain Provisions) Ordinance, 2020
Hence once the due date gets extended, there is no question of late fees u/s 234E. This waiver of late fees is consequential.
