As part of its ongoing initiative, the Income Tax Department has, on 22nd
July, 2013 another batch of 35,000 non filers. These persons were part of the
around 12 lakh non-filers identified as a result of data matching exercise. With this
latest batch, the Department has now issued letters in 2,10,000 high priority cases.
The response to this initiative has been very encouraging and a large number
of tax payers have paid taxes and filed Income Tax Returns. A compliance
management cell has been set up to monitor return filing and tax payment of the
target segment. This information is now being made available to the jurisdictional
assessing authorities through the online monitoring system for verification and issue
of notices in relevant cases.
Government would once again urge all tax payers to disclose their true
income and pay appropriate taxes.
