Nirmala Sitharaman says any Income-Tax related communication not generated from computer will be invalid

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today said that any communication from the Income Tax Department without a computer-generated DIN, be it a notice, letter, order, summon, or any other correspondence will be invalid and would not stand in the eyes of law. In the event of the launch of the platform ”Transparent Taxation – Honoring the Honest” by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, FM Sitharaman added that the faceless tax scrutiny assessment and appeal would help ease the compliance burden of taxpayers and increase fairness and objectivity in the tax system. Calling today as a landmark day in the history of tax administration, she further said that the vision of PM Modi is to empower the taxpayers, to provide a transparent system, and to honour the honest taxpayers.
Explaining the intent behind the government’s move, the Finance Minister underlined that the changes will ease the compliance burden, bring in a fair objective and there shall not be any physical interface between the department and the taxpayer, which will bring in the certainty of information
