Income tax department's information utilisation deficient: CAG
May, 01st 2013

These findings come at a time when the government, hard pressed for funds, is looking at ways to bolster the tax base. Official auditor CAG also came across cases where incorrect information was transmitted to assessing officers (AOs).

"Strengthening the tax base is arguably one of the most important aspects of the direct tax management.
