Issuance of refunds and grievance redressal by Income Tax department

Earlier, it was reported that a concerned Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has asked the Income Tax (IT) department to take prompt steps and address the taxpayers’ grievances, especially those related to refunds and PAN, within 30 days of their receipt.CBDT Chairman Sushil Chandra has written a letter to all the principal chief commissioners of the department in the country, underlining that the high pendency of such complaints reflects poorly on the efforts made by the field officers. The CBDT is the policy-making body of the IT department.

The letter states that as many as 1,492 grievances of taxpayers are pending and most of those pertain to issuance of refunds, followed by cases of rectification and PAN (Permanent Account Number) and TAN (Tax Deduction Account Number) issues. The CBDT boss asked the top command of the department to strengthen the functioning of the Aaykar Sampark Kendras (ASKs — single-window IT offices for grievances), so that the grievances could be resolved using the e-nivaran or electronic mode of grievance redress mechanism, which was launched by the department sometime back. Directions had already been issued to ensure that the grievances were resolved within 30 days of their receipt and that the officers deputed to perform these tasks attended to these cases on priority. The letter also mentioned that over 20,000 grievances of the taxpayers were disposed of since the beginning of this year till November 13.
