    Action of Finance Minister Sri.P.Chidambaram is in the interest of Public Sector banks & highly appreciated. This appropriate decision has been taken keeping in mind the computerisation of bank branches, centralised accounting system in vogue & to avoid unnecessary heavy financial burden on banks.

  2. B.S.K.RAO says:


    When audit of NATIONALIZED BANK BRANCH limit, wherein public money involved has been increased to 50 Crores, why Finance Ministry is hanging at Rs 1 Crores for tax audit under Income-Tax Act for NON-CORPORATES, even knowing the fact that it is causing strict hurdle for voluntary compliance from Non-CA Tax Professionals. Because, every time, related Non-CA Tax Professionals have to search out for empty slots of CA Signature to give compliance in case of their clients during due dates.
