What Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh are doing to widen tax net

To widen the tax net, the income tax department has begun scrutiny of the data of traders registered with GST network as also with municipal corporations in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. The department has also written to municipal corporations in the state and the neighbouring Chhattisgarh, which is also under the MP income tax zone, to introduce a column for PAN in the application form for getting a shop and establishment licences.
“After scritinising the GST registration data, it has been found that 37,000 traders were not filing the income tax returns in the past years. We will now find out that how many of them would come under the income tax net,” principal chief income tax commissioner for MP and Chhattisgarh Ajay Kumar Chouhan told reporters Friday. He said the data of shop and establishment licences were also sourced from municipal corporations to check eligible income tax payers. The officials located such traders through geo-mapping.
“For example, the Indore civic body has issued about 1.67 lakh shop and establishment licences in the past few year. After scrutiny of the data, we have zeroed in on about 18,000 shopkeepers and letters were sent to them to find out their tax eligibility,” he said. Letters were also sent to municipal commissioners to introduce a column for PAN details in the application form of shop and establishment licences, he said.
