I-T dept eyes to raise collection in MP, Chhattisgarh

The Income Tax Department is looking at adopting different measures, including adding new taxpayers, to increase the tax collection in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh regions.

Principal Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, Ajay Kumar Chouhan told this after a review meeting on Wednesday.

"We are adopting different measures to increase income tax collection by adding new taxpayers. We are also taking the help of the data from Central Goods and Service Tax (CGST) and the State Goods and Services Tax (SGST)," he said.

"We are especially eyeing those business institutions which are not filing GST returns in time despite being in the tax net. We will include all such institutions in the main stream of income tax payment," Chouhan added.
