He asked IT officers to monitor high growth areas in the economy to track any kind of evasion and urged to devise strategies to achieve the tax collection targets.

For the current year, he asked senior officers of the income tax department to exceed the target of direct tax collection at Rs. 4,30,000 crore in the Budget estimates.
