Yes, it is true.

Finance Act 2016 allows an individual to file his/her IT Returns anytime on or before a year from the end of the Assessment Year (AY) for which the ITR needs to be filed.

For example, for the AY 2016-17, a belated return can be filed on or before March 31, 2018.

However, with the amendment vide Finance Act 2016, from AY 2017-18 belated IT returns should be filed before the end of the relevant AY. For instance, for the AY 2018-19, a belated return can only be filed on or before March 31, 2019.
