Centralized Communication Centre –

The CBDT i.e. Board of Direct taxes has recently issued a very interesting Notification that leads to pave the way for establishing a Nodal Centralised Communication Centre which will incidentally act as your sole departmental interface. You or your CA/Advocate will have to directly reply to the communications from Centralized Communication System.

How Department will Issue the Notice
ü The Centralised Communication Centre shall issue notice to any person requiring him to furnish information or documents for the purpose of verification of information in his possession.

ü The notice shall be issued under digital signature of the designated authority. Now this is important as still the identity of Income tax Officer will get disclosed. This is unlike what we heard previously where both the assessee and tax officer won’t even get to know each other by Name etc.
