  1. This step has certainly been taken in right direction. The new funds will not only help in strengthening the organizational structure of Income Tax Department, but will also enable them to better spread their operations in terms of more officers, etc. helping them to carry out their functions seamlessly.

No doubt there are some hard working honest officers who should receive due appreciation for their work in terms of rewards, promotions and postings then automatically dept will work better. Also investing in infrasturcture is a good idea and should definately help in making IT dept more accessible to common man.
