Government intends to introduce Direct Taxes Code in next Parliament Session

with 0 Comment


Government intends to introduce Direct Taxes Code in next Parliament Session:

Centralized Processing Centres for improving tax payer services in two more places.

Union Finance Minister Shri Pranab Mukherjee has said that the government intends to introduce the Direct Taxes Code in the forthcoming Monsoon Session of the Parliament. He was addressing the Central Direct Tax Advisory Committee.

The Finance Minister said that he had identified nine core areas of concern expressed by various stakeholders. He assured that all these concerns have been taken into consideration while redrafting the Code. He revealed that the code will soon be put in the public domain. The Finance Minister informed the Committee that two more Centralized Processing Centers (CPC) will be set up during the current year. The first one at Bengaluru has enabled faster processing of tax returns and better records management.

Shri Mukherjee further stated that the Refund Banker Scheme will be extended to more cities this year. The scheme enables speedier refunds directly to the bank accounts of the tax payers. The scheme had been introduced in nine more cities last year. It is now available in 15 cities.

The Finance Minister pointed out that several steps have been taken to improve exchange of tax related information and bilateral tax cooperation with several countries. He said that the government has written to 65 countries to make exchange of information more effective and to remove the secrecy clause.

Shri Mukherjee also informed that twenty low or no tax countries have been identified for negotiating and signing tax information exchange agreement.

CBI conducts raid at central health depot in Mumbai

Officers of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday raided the office of the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) at Sion-Koliwada and seized medicines which are believed to be fake.

Pravin Salunkhe, deputy inspector general, CBI, said they had received information that bogus and expired drugs were being dispatched from the centralised depot of CGHS, which comes under the directorate of health.

“The CGHS supplies medicines to around 28 dispensaries, polyclinics and hospitals in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. We have taken around 12 samples of the medicines,” a CBI officer said.

The officer said a central drug inspector had accompanied them at the raid.

The samples will be sent for chemical analysis to the forensic laboratory on Wednesday. The officer said these medicines are meant for central government employees in Mumbai and the beneficiaries are nearly 1 lakh people.
