IT Dept Cadre Review Committee: Aiming at a friendly tax regime and a tax compliant society

By IndianMandarins- 20 Dec 2018


A twelve-member cadre review committee has been assigned the task of implementing a four-point charter focused on ‘caring of taxpayers’ and ‘strict compliance’. The committee has been asked to complete the process of cadre review and formulate plans to implement the charter within three months starting from December 17.


The cadre review committee headed by S K Das (Principal DG) and will draw members from the three employee associations in the department — Indian Revenue Service (IRS), I-T Gazetted Officers Association and I-T Employees Federation.


The cadre review would emphasize on creating a friendly tax regime and a more tax compliant society.


It may be underlined that a task force to draft a new Direct Tax Law to replace the existing IT Act is expected to submit its report by February 28. It is expected that the new direct tax law and cadre restructuring put together would bring in uniformity in the new system at one go.


The earlier cadre restructuring in 2013 had called for the creation of approx 21000 posts in various ranks.
