The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Wednesday provided another chance to Indian citizens who have not yet declared undisclosed income under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Deposit Scheme (PMGKDS).
The scheme's deadline is now April 30, 2017.
RBI in a press release said, "It has now been decided by the Government of India, in case of persons who had filed the declaration by depositing tax, surcharge and penalty under PMGKDS on or before March 31, to allow extension of time till April 30 for banks to upload details into RBI's E-Kuber system and for depositors to make commensurate deposits, if not already done."
Launched on December 6, 2017, the PMGKDS was applicable to every declarant under the Taxation and Investment Regime for Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana - the scheme closed on March 31.

Declaration is suppose to be made as per the amount one is holding which may be accounted and unaccounted. Then deposits can be made in the central bank or any other authorised banks.
RBI said that deposit amount should not be less then 25% of undisclosed income and shall be made in multiples of Rs 100.
No interest shall be paid for deposits made in this scheme.

A person is supposed to pay 30% tax of the undisclosed amount and penalty of 10% of undisclosed amount. Apart from this, 33% taxation for the PMGKDS will also apply.
Surcharge and penalty totaling in all to 49.9% will be applied of such declared income.

After fulfilling above steps, a person is required to file a form and then verify as per the rules and regulations prescribed by the government.
