New CBDT boss asks I-T department to maximise revenue collection, get more taxpayers

The Income Tax Department should pull up its socks to “maximise” revenue collection and enlarge the basket of tax-paying people in the country, the newly appointed chief of the CBDT said in his first communication to officials.

P C Mody, the new chairman of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), has asked the taxman to make special efforts in redressing the grievances and the issues faced by “small taxpayers”, and work with greater transparency and accountability.

The central government had earlier this month appointed Mody as the CBDT boss and he took charge of the policy-making body of the Income Tax Department on February 15. He succeeded Sushil Chandra who was appointed as an election commissioner.
