The I-T department is considering setting up a centralised cell for scrutiny of income tax cases as part of efforts to reduce personalised interface between the taxmen and taxpayers with a view to curb corrupt practices. The proposed cell will be on the lines of the Central Processing Centre (CPC) that the department currently has in Bengaluru for processing income tax returns. A senior revenue department official said the department wants to reduce interface between taxpayers and the department officers and is planning to set up a CPC. E-mails sent out from the CPC would not bear the name of the assessing officer, he said. “It is in discussion stage. This will be as part of the department’s drive to go faceless and reduce interface,” the official, who did not wish to be quoted, told PTI.
