      You may be able to file for now. However, by 1st July 2017 – aadhaar must be linked with PAN. or PAN will be made invalid. So please apply for an aadhaar card. You can also mention your aadhaar enrollment number in your tax return.

    In the starting you have said that Old ITR-4 is now new ITR-3, but in the ITR wise discriptions, it still says ITR-4 is for proprietary business. What is the correct detail??

      The last date to deposit income tax without penal interest for FY 2016-17 was 31st March 2017. Tax can still be deposited by you, however penal interest shall apply.
