Dear Principal Chief Commissioner of Income Tax,

Subject: Review of position of cash collection from current demand- Achievement of Action Plan target.

As you are aware, the Central Action Plan, 2016-17 has fixed the target of cash collection out of current demand as 20% of the current demand raised during the year. In this regard. a review of the current demand raised in various Regions up to November. 2016 was carried out and the position in respect of various Pr. CCsIT is given in the attached chart. It may be noted that at the all-India level, current demand of Rs.97,033 crore has been raised till November, 2016. after reducing the pre-paid taxes amounting to Rs.59,410 crore. At the rate of 20% of the net current demand, an amount of Rs.19.407 crore needs to be recovered collectively from demand raised till November. 2016. The targets for various Pr. CCIT Regions are separately provided in the chart enclosed.

At the beginning of February, 2017, the current demand raised in the month of December, 2016 will also fall due and recoveries therefrom would also have to be made as per the Central Action Plan target so as to meet the overall annual target of 20%.

3. It may be reiterated that the time-barring date of scrutiny assessment was advanced to 31st December with the objective to provide the assessment units with a dedicated quarter for recovery of demand raised. The Action Plan targets for collection out of current demand have been fixed liberally in the light of the additional dedicated time available for recovery. You are requested to ensure that concentrated measures are taken forthwith to collect current demand to the maximum extent feasible under the extant guidelines for recovery of demand and at least the Action Plan target must be fully met by the end of the financial
