Over 3 crore taxpayers successfully complete transactions. 1.5 crore Income Tax Returns filed: Infosys

Over three crore taxpayers have successfully completed transactions and close to 1.5 crore Income Tax Returns filed in the new I-T portal, Infosys said in a statement today.

"Over the last few weeks, the portal has seen steady increase in usage with taxpayers’ concerns being progressively addressed. So far over 3 crore taxpayers have logged into the portal and have successfully completed various transactions. Even as the portal makes sustained progress with crores of taxpayers successfully performing transactions, the Company acknowledges the difficulties some users continue to experience and is working expeditiously, in collaboration with the Income Tax Department, to further streamline end-user experience," the company said in a BSE filing on September 23.

This comes after the persistent glitches the Infosys’ new e-filing portal faced since the launch on June 7. Persistent glitches forced Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to call Infosys’ executives for meeting twice, in June and on August 23. Sitharaman gave the IT major time till September 15 to get the portal in order.
