New Delhi, Oct 27 (ANI): Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday launched E-Sahyog and PAN camps, to improve services of the Income Tax Department, and said that it will help in tracing the transactions within the system which do not get reflected in the tax returns. He said eventually the idea is to capture some part of transactions within the system, so that if those don’t get reflected in the tax returns, questions can be asked. He added the object of the income tax department is to make life as easy as possible for assesses and difficult only for those who consciously evade and avoid. Jaitley further said that a committee has been constituted to simplify the provisions of Income Tax Act. E-sahyog is a paperless initiative of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) under which notices to assesses would be sent to their emails. The PAN camps are aimed at expanding the coverage of number of people through the Permanent Account Number.
