New portal of income tax started on 7th June
The new portal www.incometax.gov.in was launched on 7th June. The Income Tax Department and the government said that its objective is to make compliance more easy for taxpayers. But after a while, there were many complaints from the users. Even after a week, the technical flaws are not completely resolved. Many features have not started yet. It is being written on it that ‘Coming Soon’ means it will start soon.
The country’s second largest ID company has created a new portal
Infosys was awarded the contract in 2019 to develop the next generation income tax filing system. The aim is to reduce the time taken for processing of returns from 63 days to one day and speed up the refund process.
Finance Minister also complained
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had herself asked IT company Infosys and its chairman Nandan Nilekani, which created the portal, to remove technical flaws in the new e-filing website of the Income Tax Department. On the very second day of the portal’s launch, a large number of users on Sitharaman’s Twitter timeline complained about the portal not working properly. After that the Finance Minister had asked Infosys and its chairman to sort out the problems. Responding to Sitharaman’s tweet, Nilekani had said that Infosys is resolving technical issues.
