Finance Minister Arun Jaitley launched Aaykar Setu, a new income tax payer e-service module, in New Delhi today. To enhance mobile access experience, a mobile responsive Android version was also released along with the desktop version. Speaking on the occasion, the FM said that technology is a great enabler and this app will reduce the physical interface between assessees and the tax assessing authorities. “This, in turn, would help in reducing tax harassment of assessees, among others,” he said.

Jaitley stressed on the government’s commitment towards continuously upgrading tax payer services. The new step is an effort by the Income Tax Department (ITD) to directly communicate with the taxpayers, on a range of multiple informative and useful tax services aimed at providing tax information at their fingertips. The module compiles various tax tools, live chat facility, dynamic updates, and important links to various processes within the Income Tax Department in a single module.

The tax payers will also be able to receive regular updates regarding important tax dates, forms and notifications on mobile numbers registered with the ITD. All taxpayers who wish to receive such SMS alerts should register their mobile numbers in the Aaykar Setu module.

      A shopkeeper or a professional doing business on his own .He pays tax at source on fixed deposit , on his annual income till say 65 yes falls sick and has to retire. Is there any help or incentive by govt to provide him any allowance straightway.Or he finishes his savings and then laments why he paid taxes regularly and honestly.
