One point to note about the latest ITR-1 form is that it allows individuals to claim the deductions on tax-saving investments made between April 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020 under the DI Schedule. This is because the Government, as part of its initial covid-19 related relief measures, had extended the tax-saving deadline to June 30, 2020 from March 31, 2020 for FY 2019-20.
