Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday announced the launch of “Transparent Taxation” platforms for honest taxpayers. The three main features of the platform will be faceless assessment, faceless appeal and taxpayers’ charter.
The main aim of this platform is to make the system people centric and public friendly. Modi said that when the honest taxpayers find the system easy, he moves forward making the country also develop. This faceless assessment has been introduced to decrease the chance of corruption by officials.
The Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that this day should be marked as a landmark day in the history of tax administration. The platform will use technology such as data analytics and AI.
