Collect Taxes; Get Promotion & Choice Posting: CBDT Chief

Text of letter dated 7.2.2012 addressed by Shri. Laxman Das, Chairman, CBDT, to the income-tax department

Laxman Das, Chairman,
Central Board of Direct Taxes
,
Department of Revenue,
Ministry of Finance,
North Block,
New Delhi 110001
Dated: 7th February 2012

My Dear Chief Commissioners/ Director Generals of lncome Tax (Inv.) and Commissioners/ Directors (International Taxation).

I have taken over as Chairman at a time when Revenue Collections seem to be far away from the budget target with less then two months at hand.

At this critical juncture, our task as revenue administrators becomes that much more challenging. As senior officers, we have to play a critical role in making all possible efforts to improve the situation. We have to ensure that every Chief Commissioner/ Director General of Income Tax (Inv.) / Commissioner /Director (International Taxation) achieves the budget
target.

In this context, all Chief Commissioners (CCA) may please tabulate data in respect of their regions (in the format enclosed) consisting of CCsIT/ DGsIT and CsIT wise revenue collection figures up to 31st Jan, 2012 as against the budget target to be achieved by 31st March, 2012. This data should reach me by 15th February, 2012 by e-mail at the following email id: anuja.cbdt (at) gmail.com

Among the parameters of performance in your area, achievement of revenue collection target will obviously be given the highest weightage while writing your APAR by reporting officers and reviewing officers and will also be a major factor while considering placements during AGT 2012.

I trust that each of you understands that achieving the budget target is non-negotiable.

On my part. I assure you of my absolute support in this regard.

I am sure that with your support we will be able to meet our targets.

With best wishes.

Laxman Das

    No mention of pending refunds,rectifications and grievance petitions!NO mention also of non existent demands adjusted by CPC without intimation. Just collect whichever way possible…Is it not high time that officers are assessed not on the basis of recovery but on the basis of pending refunds,rectifications and grievance petitions in their charge or is the objective of the Government only to collect money by hook or by cr….
