Subject: Opening of offices on 28th February, 2015-reg.
The Union Government is presenting its Annual Budget 2015-16 on 28th February, 2015, which falls on Saturday. As it may not be a working day in certain offices, it is desired that all the offices of CBEC/field formations may remain open on that day, so that the changes made in the Budget and their impact on revenue can quickly be examined and analysed by the field formations so as to guide the trade properly and to bring to the notice of the Board any difficulties/anomalies etc. noticed in the tax proposals.
2. You are, therefore, requested to immediately issue Trade Notices for the information of the trade and also keep your offices, as a special measure, opened on 28th February, 2015.
3. This issues with the approval of Chairperson, CBEC.
Under Secretary to the Govt. of India
