Upgrade technology, raise trained manpower for tax department
May, 22nd 2012

The white paper on black money has made several recommendations to deal with the problem but it seems that the lack of manpower and absence of cutting edge technology is hampering the government's efforts to combat the menace.

It lists a number of steps to strengthen the direct tax administration, of the Financial Intelligence Unit, Central Economic Intelligence Bureau, the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence and Enforcement Directorate.

The paper mentions the problem of manpower and technology in almost all the tax departments and calls for effective steps to address the two issues to enable the government's fight against the generation of black money.

"As the contribution of direct taxes in revenue collection rises, direct tax administration must be strengthened to ensure that it keeps pace with the rising needs of the growing economy," the paper said.

"This factor is also important because the direct tax databases are one of the largest databases available in the country and being an accounts-based tax, it has the potential of creating appropriate audit trails that can build strong deterrence against evasion as well as help catch evaders and trace black money kept in various forms within the country and abroad," the paper said.

At another pace, the paper said the manpower and technology available to the Directorate of International Taxation, which has played a crucial role in unearthing black money, needs to be improved.

Similarly, manpower problem is hurting the plan to issue PAN cards. "Providing adequately trained manpower can help improve the efficiency of the (tax) department by leaps and bounds," the paper said.

"The data-mining capacities of the department need to be strengthened with risk-analysis tools. Due to the voluminous data coming for analysis from different sources, the work cannot be done manually and intelligent software needs to be designed to this end," the paper said while pointing to the need for setting a Directorate of Risk Management.
