Yes. All taxpayers have got relief from the finance ministry of India. The date for filing tax returns (FY20 assessment year) got extended by one month to 31st August.

The deadline excludes individuals and certain non-corporate assessees, HUF, Association of Persons and businesses whose accounts are not required to be audited from filing their returns.
Originally the due date for all taxpayers to file return was 31st July 2019.

The main reason for the government to revise the ITR due date is the multiple problems taxpayers were facing while filing returns.

Take it as a grace period, but try to do it today. On a day when the Govt will tighten the rules, it will hurt to not stay ahead of the due date.
