Vide Circular No. 22/2022 dated 1st November 2022 CBDT has condoned the delay in filing Form No. 10A for which the earlier extended due date was 31.03.2022. Organizations that may have missed the due date have until 25th November 2022 to file online Form 10A and re-validate their tax exemption u/s 12A. 

Organizations that have complied with this requirement by 31st March 2022 need do nothing more. However, if you know of organizations which have missed the earlier deadline, please let them know of this opportunity.
