For audit u/s. 65, there is no due date to conduct the audit. The commissioner may suo moto authorize audit with 15 days notice to the assessee. The audit needs to complete within 3 months + an extended period of 6 months. After completion of audit, the department proceeds with issue of SCN u/s. 73 /74 as the case may be. So essentially all proceedings will be completed by 3/5 years from the due date of annual return. In the instant case, the due date for 2017-18 was 7-Feb-2020 and all proceedings to be completed by 6-Feb-2023 under s.73 or 6-Feb-2025 under s.74

I agree with Madam SOWMYA CA. There is due date for issuance/service of demand SCN and not for audit. Accordingly, the department plans schedule for audit of the units much before the due date of service of Demand-SCN so that the demand does not get time barred, if short levy/non-levy is detected.
