Nagpur: ICAI Nagpur recently organized interactive meet with Hon. Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, Vidarbha Region, Shri S. D. Charan. After assuming charge as CCIT of Vidarbha Shri Charanji has taken proactive step in development of assessee friendly atmosphere at Income Tax Department. He said that Chartered Accountants of Nagpur are very much co-operative and professional in their approach. He said that progress done by Nagpur ICAI is significant & remarkable. He also appealed the CAs to guide their clients in payment of Direct Taxes as there is deficit in tax collection at Vidarbha region.
He said that Vidarbha has huge potential for development as it has apt transport availability it’s a logistic hub, rich in minerals. Target of tax collection is hardly achieved in spite of great environment opportunity. Important issue that department is facing that there is low number of assessee’s paying taxes at tax base is a matter of concern for us. A country is strong or weak not because of territory that belongs to it but the economy that it holds. There is see change in the city in past 2 decades however the growth is not reflected in term of revenue. Growth of economy with Direct Taxes is a healthy sign of growing economy. Only 3% of population of our country is paying income tax. Tax payment is not only an obligation of tax payers. But it is for their own interest. Technology has made it possible for the government offices to track the transactions. He appealed CAs to educate assessee about the penal provisions of the department.
