New Delhi dated 7th April, 2017
It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating you all for accomplishing the Budget Collection Target of Rs. 8.47 lakh Crore for the F.Y. 2016-17, thereby contributing significantly in the revenue mobilisation efforts of the Government for the developmental schemes for public at large. After many years, the Income Tax Department has achieved its collection target with a gross growth rate of 16.8% and a net growth rate of 14.2% which speaks volumes about the sincere hardwork put in by all officers and staff of the Department.
This achievement becomes more important in the light of the fact that the entire workforce of the Department worked tirelessly during the F.Y. 2016-17 for making the flagship schemes of the Government truly successful. Whether it was the intense outreach programmes for IDS-2016, or the focussed activity for unearthing unscrupulous cash transactions in the wake of demonetisation and Operation Clean Money, the officers and officials have shown tremendous tenacity and devotion towards their assigned duties under the able guidance of their respective Principal CCsIT/DGsIT, CCsIT/DGs1T and Principal CsIT/DsIT.
I am sure that all the officers and officials of the Department would continue to strive for similar excellence with the same enthusiasm and professionalism to face the future challenges in the coming days.
I once again congratulate you all !
All Officers & Officials of Income Tax Department
