JCA called for agitation again : call for non submission of reports

Due to some personal reasons, the blog could not be updated for a week. In this week, the long awaited promotion in the cadre of ACIT has been released. The news of this promotion was published in this blog on 30th October and it was not a "fake news" !
Now we have to wait for the consequential promotions in different charges as well. the JCA leaders may look into the process of regularization of these promotions at the earliest. Already three batches of ACITs are working on ad hoc basis. As per DOPT rules, the ad hoc promotions ceases to exist after one year, unless the period is extended. The extension has been made only for the first batch for six months, which also has been expired. There is no extension of consequential promotions made so far. Those who are retiring in between with ad hoc promotions (not extended) is compelled to get benefits as per their old post before promotion.
Meanwhile central JCA called for non submission of reports  'As you all know that the pressure of multiple and repetitive reports, even inventing new proforma for reports, as asked by the Pr.CCsIT/CCsIT/Pr.CsIT in all 18 regions of tax‐India have become unbearable and the assessing officers are getting suffocated more and more as they approach the time‐barring date."
"In such scenario, the Central JCA has taken decision to give call to its members not to submit any report, from 16‐11‐2017 itself, except i) the Statutory Reports, ii) Reply to the Parliament Questions, iii) Reply to the Audit Objections and iv) any particular Report asked by the CBDT in addition to the statutory ones."
Congratulations to new ACITs !

L&T Infotech bags '$100 million contract' to help pin down tax evaders

The ambitious initiative to use social media analytics to identify tax non-compliance is a $100 million project for the infotech arm of engineering giant Larsen & Toubro, according to a company official.
Since the note ban last November, the government has been putting in lots of efforts to plug the loopholes in the taxation system using advanced technology and the attempt got an added focus since the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in June had admitted that as much 99% of the banned banknotes had returned to the system, negating the stated intent of cancelling 87% of the notes in circulation.
“That is really advanced analytics. Now, that is like a $100-million deal for us. It’s not a small deal,” L&T Infotech chief executive and managing director Sanjay Jalona told PTI.
Terming the work awarded by the Central Board of Direct Taxes as a “high volume digital deal”, he elaborated that the project involves creating a ‘semantic web’ where web pages are structured and tagged in such a way that can be directly read by the computers. “We are creating a systematic web on a person. If his wife is going to the Seychelles and putting photos on Instagram, we will capture it ... that is really advanced analytics,” Jalona said.
