FY 2019-20: IT Department to ask for a cut of Rs 1 lakh crore

When Prime Minister Narendra Modi is constantly pitching for making India a $5trillion economy, the income-tax department will ask for a cut of at least Rs 1 lakh crore in the target for direct tax collection in 2019-20 because of growth in the segment sliding to 3 per cent as of October 31. This declining growth is largely because of the consumption slowdown and tax rate cuts.

Corporation tax collection, net of refunds, grew by just 0.5 per cent in the first seven months of the financial year, against the year’s expansion target of 15.4 per cent at Rs 7.66 trillion. However personal I-T collection grew by 5 per cent till October.

Road to success goes through....?

Some recent developments have made several senior IRS (IT) officers apprehensive about their career prospects. The way Akhilesh Ranjan (member, CBDT) opted for VRS following re-appointment of P C Mody as CBDT Chairman, confidence of several senior most IRS officers seems to have shaken up. But officers belonging to junior batches take it sportingly. Out of humor, junior IRS officers are often heard saying ‘if you have ever served in Gujarat region you have chances but if you didn’t you should not lose hope’.
