On a request from various stakeholders, the state administrative council, led by Governor Satya Pal Malik, decided on Friday to extend the date of depositing the second instalment up to March 31, so that the inconvenience faced by the dealers in depositing their instalment is addressed, the official said.

The amnesty scheme, announced in February last year, provides for 100-per cent remission of penalty and interest on arrears of tax for dealers under the provisions of the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir Value Added Tax Act, 2005, and J&K Sales Tax Act, 1962. (PTI)
