Sub:- Celebration of Central Excise Day
Twenty fourth February of every year is celebrated as Central Excise Day and different programmes are organized by different formations to mark the day Board vide its letter of even number dated 6.2.2014 had listed certain suggested activities that could be organized to celebrate the day.
2. CBEC has decided that year 2015 is to be celebrated as the ‘Year of Taxpayers services’. You may recall that the Government has time and again stressed on initiatives designed to foster voluntary compliance through increased efficiency in delivery of services to taxpayers, transforming the attitude of taxpayers toward paying taxes through continuous education and instituting a service-focused culture within the indirect tax administration. With this in view, it is proposed that while planning the celebrations for the Central Excise Day, 2015, the above theme is to be kept in mind.
3. Views/suggestions in this regard may be shared with other field formations and the Board.
