Indian Panel Will Seek To Enhance Tax Administration

India's new Tax Administration Reform Commission is focusing on the rules and features of the administrative system, rather than on policy or legislation, according to its chair Parthasarathi Shome.

Speaking at a press event, Shome said that the Commission is working intensively, in cooperation with the Income Tax Department. His fellow members are drawn from both the public and private sector.

The Commission's first report is due at the end of May. It will produce four such publications over the coming year.

"Under the process, we will be going to various metros and we have already met officers in Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, and Kolkata. We are going to have such a meeting in New Delhi. We have also invited Chambers of Commerce, chartered accountants, and tax advocates. So their inputs are also coming in," Shome explained to local media.
