Representations have been received seeking condonation of delay in filing Return of Income by the Charitable institutions for the Assessment Year 2016- 17 onwards on the grounds of hardship. The Board has issued Circulars authori zing the Commissioners of Income Tax to admit belated applications of Form 9A and Fonn 10 and to decide on merit the condonation of delay U/S 11 9(2)(b) of the Income-tax Act, 1961 (Act). However, in those cases where the Income Tax Returns have also been filed beyond the due date prescribed under section 139(1) of the Act, the condonation of delay in fi ling of Form 9A & Form 10 by the Commissioners is not of any help to the assessee, as section 13(9) of the Act, inserted w.e.f. 01.04.20 16, stipulates twin conditions of fi ling of Fonn 9A/Fonn 10 and also of fi ling Return of Income before the due date.
