The Finance Minister revealed that the tax department has identified sectors with chronic tax evasion — viz. renting of immovable property, construction, IT, real estate, mining, advertisement, storage and warehouses.

Firming its grip on tax evaders, Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) announced that any tenant will have to now produce PAN number of her/his landlord, if s/he wishes a tax exemption exceeding Rs. 1 lakh annually.

It is so found by the Finance Ministry that out of 17 lakh registered tax filers, only 7 lakh pay the tax. The Union Minister requested non-filers to reap benefits of schemes that waive interest and other penalties. The Ministry is aiming to generate tax revenue during current fiscal of Rs. 180.141 crore.
