Indore: Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, Indore region Ajay Kumar Chouhan has said the city, which bagged the cleanest city in the country, would also get No 1 rank in clean money. It is said that so far over 3,000 people from the region have joined hands with ‘operation clean money drive’ and with this the total figure reached 10,000.
“In fact, we want to prove that the city residents want all kinds of cleanliness, said Chouhan while addressing a workshop of over 300 traders here on Thursday. The workshop was organised to inform traders about the new initiatives of the Income Tax Department. Chouhan said honest tax-payers should not fear but warned that the tax-dodgers won’t be spared at all. Elaborating about the initiatives started by the department, he said: “We have started delivering the services through electronic platform like e-seva, e-sahyog, e-assessment and e-aaykar setu.
Informing about the campaign Income Tax Collection fortnight, Chouhan said that this would end on October 2. However, this is just an opportunity for tax payers to settle their pending cases. Earlier, while delivering the welcome address, Ramesh Khandelwal, president of Ahilya Chamber of Commerce, expressed concerns of traders after demonetization and rolling out of GST. He stated that these two are affecting middle class traders. The department should consider their problems.
