ICAI: IT Forms without UDIN will be treated as Null and Void by CBDT
The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, in its gazette notification dated 2nd August, 2019, had made generation of UDIN from ICAI website mandatory for every kind of certificate/ tax audit report and other attests made by their members as required by various regulators. This was introduced to curb fake certifications by non-CAs misrepresenting themselves as CAs.
UDINs for certain IT Forms which have been uploaded on e-filing Portal by the Members during 27th April 2020 to 26th Nov 2020 have not yet been updated resulting invalidation of these forms. CBDT has given the extension for updating UDINs on all above stated forms and can be done latest by 15th February, 2021. ICAI has directed Chartered Accountants to update UDINs in all Income Tax Forms. The announcement is as follows-

Update UDINs in all Income Tax Forms
Members are aware that CBDT is validating UDIN while uploading of Tax Audit and other Income Tax Reports as per their Press release, else the forms will become null and void.
We have been given to understand that UDINs for certain IT Forms which have been uploaded on e-filing Portal by the Members during 27th April 2020 to 26th Nov., 2020 have not yet been updated resulting invalidation of these forms.
On the persuasion of ICAI, CBDT has given the extension for updating UDINs on all above stated forms and can be done latest by 15th February, 2021 for treating these forms as valid.
In view of the above, the members are requested to avail this last opportunity and update the UDINs on the e-filing Portal at the earliest but not later than 15th February, 2021 to avoid invalidation.
In addition to above, for the current upload of the IT Forms, members are requested to update the valid UDIN within 15 days of such uploading else the IT forms will be treated as Null and Void by CBDT.
