IT consulting firm Accenture said it has bagged a management project to help transform Maharashtra government's Sales Tax Department.
The transformation will help the Department maximise revenue collection and strengthen its enforcement function, Accenture said in a statement.
No financial details were disclosed. Accenture also will identify a service provider to upgrade the Department's technology infrastructure with the goal of increasing efficiency and updating record maintenance so historical data will be easier to access and identify, it added.
The improvements are expected to make it easier for taxpayers to interact with the department.
"The Department of Sales Tax is a major revenue collecting body for the Government of Maharashtra, contributing about 60 per cent of all revenue," said Nilaya Varma, Accenture India Health and Public Service Management Consulting Business Managing Director.
The project will facilitate improved business processes and create multiple channels for service delivery, facilitating prompt action that will lead to improved services and more interactive communication, Varma added.
