    Sir, I reckon Income tax Act does not specify any thing regarding the filing of Audit report, earlier there was specific section for filing of audit report which was later omitted from the Act.

    Now as on date there is no provision for filing of Tax Audit report in the act. It is just by the circular of CBDT which mandates filing of report

    in such case what can be implication if any one fails to file the tax audit report online.

    thanks
