Prime Minister Narendra Modi while speaking at the launch of a platform for “Transparent Taxation-Honoring the Honest” emphasised the role of tax compliance in nation-building and said the government is following a policy-driven governance model, reported a news agency.
The Prime Minister said that the new tax system is going to become faceless and this will give a belief of fairness and fearlessness to taxpayers. Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that the initiative is a landmark in the history of tax administration.
“The Prime Minister’s vision is to empower taxpayers, to provide a transparent system and to honour the honest taxpayer. To realise this vision, CBDT has given a framework and put in a place a system in the form of this platform,” she said.
“A transparent, efficient and accountable tax administration is what this platform brings it. It uses technology, data analytic and also uses artificial intelligence. It eases compliance burden, brings fair, objective and just system,” the Minister added.
