Honouring The Honest: PM Modi launches platform for Transparent Taxation

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on 13 August 2020 at 11 a.m., launched the platform for ‘Transparent Taxation- Honoring The Honest’ via video conferencing. He underlined that the new reform will instill a sense of fearlessness among honest taxpayers who play an important role in national development.

The launch aims at initiating major tax reforms that would bring transparency in tax systems and empowering taxpayers.

The Income Tax Department carried out several major tax reforms in recent years. Last year the Corporate tax rates were reduced from 30 percent to 22 percent and for new manufacturing units, the rate was reduced to 15 percent. Dividend distribution Tax was also abolished.

In addition to a reduction in tax rates IT Dept emphasized on simplification of direct tax laws. Several initiatives were taken for bringing in efficiency and transparency in the functioning of the Department. This includes bringing more transparency in official communication through the newly introduced Document Identification Number (DIN) wherein every communication of the Department would carry a computer generated unique document identification number. 

Similarly, to increase the ease of compliance for taxpayers, IT Department has moved forward with the prefilling of income tax returns to make compliance more convenient for individual taxpayers. Compliance norms for startups too were made simpler.

With a view to providing for the resolution of pending tax disputes the IT Department also brought out the Direct Tax Vivad se Vishwas Act, 2020 under which declarations for settling disputes are being filed currently. To effectively reduce taxpayer grievances/litigation, the monetary thresholds for filing of departmental appeals in various appellate Courts were raised.

IT Department also undertook measures to promote digital transactions and electronic modes of payment. The IT department appeared keen on taking the initiatives forward and efforts were made to ease compliances for taxpayers during the Covid times by extending statutory timeliness for filing returns as also releasing refunds expeditiously to increase liquidity in the hands of taxpayers.

Today’s launch on Tax Reforms by the Prime Minister signifies that the journey of direct tax reforms would continue.

IRS officers in the eye of the storm: Report suggestive in nature, govt feels going public violates service rules?

The three senior IRS officers- Prashant Bhushan (IRS:1988), Prakash Dubey (IRS:1989), and Sanjay Bahadur (IRS:1989) have been charge-sheeted by the government for playing a key role in preparing a report on raising income tax and placing the report in the public domain. The three enthusiast officers have also been stripped of their charges.

They have been charge-sheeted for service conduct rule violations. However, people from the service say that the report prepared by these enthusiast officials is “suggestive in nature” and “does not adversely criticize the policy” of the government. Moreover, it was a collective view of the IRS association.

It may be underlined that there have been many instances when All India Services officers have been expressing their views suggesting the government by means of social media and writeups in newspapers.

Recently over six hundred IAS officers from particular baches and up to certain ranks were asked to provide suggestions to deal with COVID-19 pandemic. They provided suggestions to the government based on their hands-on experience which reportedly proved to be quite useful.

In fact service rules say that a public servant should not come up with any matter, issue or idea in public through media or by any means which adversely criticizes or influences government policy. It should also not be motivated as well.

Reportedly, the officers utilized the time of lockdown to prepare a report that is suggestive in nature. It is by no means criticism or influences any policy. What appears to have gone against them is sharing it via twitter and email adding to the discomfort and displeasure of an elected government that has already been handling an increasingly complex and unforeseen COVID-19 crisis.  

If some top sources are to be believed the only issue that goes against these officers is that the government must have been considering additional taxes but the reaction of the general public to the policy paper was so adverse that now the government can not even think about raising taxes. Further, instead of making it public had they put up the report to the government through the proper administrative channels none could have objected to the efforts of these enthusiast officers.

Government officers are often criticized for lack of creativity but if they come up with any such idea, they are penalized which discourages their creative intent. 

ALSO READ: Direct tax collection unrealistic without revision: Who is to be blamed?

It is alleged that these three officers had failed to exercise due care despite having more than 30 years of service and misguided 50 young officers to prepare the report and circulate it.

Bhushan and Dubey are General Secretary of the IRS Association respectively whereas Bahadur has been charged with getting young income tax officers to prepare the report. Dubey was a director in the department of personnel and training while Bahadur was the income tax department’s Principal Director Investigation, North East Region.

Alarming trend in Direct Tax collection: Hitting the target Vs Missing the bus

By IndianMandarins 10 Jan 2020

While re-calibrating and fixing direct taxes collection target for FY 2019-2020 at Rs 13.35 lakh crore, CBDT chief P C Mody had said last year that it was difficult but achievable. But even after the completion of three quarters of FY 2019-2020 the collection figures of Direct Taxes is nowhere close to it.

Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that on completion of third quarter (ending 31.12.2019) the all India collection of Direct Taxes is far less (- 6%) than the collection as compared to the corresponding period last year. The deficit is primarily attributed to the weak performance of metro cities. The down trend may be shown as follows:

Mumbai: (-5%)
Delhi: (-10%)
Bangalore: (-7%)
Chennai: (-2%)
Jaipur: (-20%)

It is to be seen whether CBDT would be able to hit the target of Rs 13.78 lakh cr or even maintain the previous year’s figure. The collection figures are clear indicator that relatively smaller cities have to play critical role in the wake of weak contributions by metro cities and country's commercial capitals.  


FACTS AND FACETS:

  1. FY 2019-2020: In view of historical growth rate in collections in the past three years FinMin had initially set the at Rs 13.78 lakh crore for FY 2019-20. After Budget deliberations it was re-calibrated and fixed at Rs 13.35 lakh crore.
  2. FY 2018-2019: I-T department had collected Rs 11.37 crore during FY 2018-19 against its initial target of Rs 13.80 lakh crore, a shortfall of around Rs 83,000 crore or 7.4 percent of the Rs 12 lakh crore collection target. The collection was, however, 18.3 percent higher than FY 2017-2018.
  3. The revenue collection targets are set by the Union Finance Ministry in consultation with CBDT which frames policy for the IT Department.
  4. The direct tax collection bucket comprises personal income tax, securities transaction tax and corporate tax.
  5. In 2019 FinMin Nirmala Sitharaman’s move of bringing almost all the companies in the lower tax net was widely appreciated by the business world.

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.
