PM’s Good Governance: I-T dept to hold public meets every Wed

The Income Tax department will hold public meetings every Wednesday to resolve taxpayers grievances and tax issues as part of the ‘Good Governance’ initiative mooted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Central Board of Direct Taxes, the apex policy making body of the I-T department, has issued latest instructions in this regard under which senior officials of the department across the country have been tasked to meet taxpayers between 10 AM-1 PM on one day in a week, without prior appointment.

“As a part of Prime Minister’s ‘Good Governance Day’ promise to provide an open and accountable administration it has been decided that all field offices of the I-T department will observe ‘public meeting day’ during 10am to 1pm every Wednesday to listen to and try to resolve the grievances of the members of the public,” the CBDT wrote in its December 6 circular to all Principal Chief Commissioners and Directors General of I-T across the country. The CBDT has asked the top officers of each I-T zone to also keep a record of grievances attended to and solved during these sessions and apprise the CBDT in this regard every month.
