As per the provisions of Companies Act, 2013, the companies are required to file Financial Statements (Standalone and/or consolidated) within 30 days and the Annual Return within 60 days from the conclusion of Annual General Meeting (AGM) or form the date when the Annual General Meeting (AGM) ought to be held i.e. due date of AGM. On the filing of the financial statements and annual return after due date, additional fees are required to be paid.

Therefore, the Government has extended the due date of annual filing for such above mentioned companies.
