Should ITR dates be extended for non availability of e-forms for AY 2018-19 on e-filing portal?

Do you agree with demand that ITR dates should be extended for non availability of e-forms for AY 2018-19 on e-filing portal yet or it is just an excuse and would hardly make any difference as last date for filing TDS returns is not over?

Should ITR dates be extended for non availability of e-forms for AY 2018-19 on e-filing portal?

As of now the Income Tax Department has released only e-form ITR-1 and other e-forms (i.e ITR-2, ITR-3, ITR-4 and ITR-7) have still not been released. The ticker at the income tax e-filing website however says that Other ITRs will be available shortly. 

In view of the above, in social media, there has been a demand by few that ITR due dates should be linked to ITR availability.

However, the demand seems to be misdirected and only an excuse because the time limit for furnishing quarterly TDS return for the quarter ending 31st Match, 2018 is 31st May, 2018 . It is very unlikely that any wise person would furnish his/her ITR without matching it with Form 26AS, particularly in view of the advisory of the CBDT in this regard.

So far as the following e-forms have been made available

(a) ITR-1 >>

(b) ITR-4 >>

So what turns out to be the real issue at best could be how to shorten the the gap between due date for filing TDS return for the 4th quarter and the availability of the ITR by that date and not the linking of ITR due dates with availability of ITR e-forms.
