DIN To Make Tax Administration Transparent

 New Delhi: All communications to assessees by the income tax department will  carry a Document Identification Number (DIN), the CBDT said Wednesday. It will be effected  from October 1.The move aims to make the system  transparent in tax administration. The DIN number will also help improve the service delivery as almost all notices and orders of the Income Tax Department are being generated electronically on the Income Tax Business Application (ITBA) platform.

The CBDT has now laid down parameters specifying the manner in which any communication issued by any income-tax authority relating to assessment, appeals, orders, statutory or otherwise, exemptions, enquiry, investigation, verification of information, penalty, prosecution, rectification and approval to the assessee will be dealt with.

"All such communication issued on or after the 1st of October, 2019 shall carry a computer-generated DIN duly quoted in the body of such communication," the release said.

"Any communication which is not in conformity with the prescribed guidelines shall be treated as invalid and shall be deemed to have never been issued," it added.
