Infosys's deadline ends, but bugs in tax-filing portal remain

Infosys's deadline ends, but bugs in tax-filing portal remain

The new Income Tax e-filing portal developed by Infosys continued to face glitches despite the September 15 deadline set by the government to iron out issues on the platform.

The portal, which went live on June 7, has been plagued with technical problems, drawing the ire of the finance ministry as well as taxpayers who have voiced their concerns on social media networks. “For individuals, it is difficult to file. Some of the features such as pre-filled form for interest payments on FD and others are still not updated,” said Chandan Kumar Hegde, president of the Karnataka State Chartered Accountants’ Association. “We have made presentations (to the government and Infosys). Maybe 50-60% of it is implemented.”
