Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday launched the platform for Transparent Taxation – Honoring The Honest.
Finance Minister Sitharaman at launch of the platform for “Transparent Taxation–Honoring the Honest” said that “PM’s vision is to empower the taxpayer, to provide a transparent system and to honour honest taxpayers. To realise this vision, CBDT has given a framework and put in place this system.”
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister said that “This platform has big reforms such as faceless assessment, faceless appeal, and taxpayers charter. Faceless assessment and taxpayers charter come in force from today, whereas faceless appeal service will be available from September 25.”
“The emphasis is on making every rule-law, policy people-centric and public friendly. This is the use of the new governance model and the country is getting its results,” he added.
He further said that “There was a time when there used to be a lot of talk about reforms. Sometimes decisions were taken out of compulsion or pressure and were called reforms. Due to this, the desired results could not be achieved. Now this thinking and approach, both have changed.” “Our effort is that our tax system should be seamless, painless, faceless,” he said.
