I-T e-assessment: New centralised communication scheme in place
New Delhi: The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has notified a new centralised communication scheme for serving e-notices to income tax-payers as part of the government's ambitious plan to usher in a countrywide paperless system of an interface between the taxman and the assessee.
The scheme stipulates that an Internet-based independent centralised communication centre (CCC) will be established in the Income Tax department that will "issue notice" to any person (under section 133C of the Income Tax Act), who is required to furnish information or documents, for verification, to the taxman.
The CBDT, the policy-making body of the tax department, said in the notification, which was issued on February 22, that the scheme would ensure that "no person shall be required to appear personally or through authorised representative before the designated authority (of the I-T department) at the centralised communication centre in connection with any proceedings."
