Madam,

Sub.: Matter relating to TEPs — reg.

As you are aware, government has laid great emphasis on providing services to the taxpayers without any hassles and problems and with the use of technology. It has come to the notice of the Board that many Tax Evasion Petitions (TEPs) either remain unattended due to huge workload or are picked up on random basis by the officers leading to harassment of the taxpayers.

2. To utilize the valuable information available to the department in the form of TEPs and to prevent harassment of the taxpayers, Board has decided that they should be handled with the help of technology in a centralized manner. In view of these reasons and in supersession of earlier instructions, Board desires that the work mentioned in the table below is taken up on priority and should be done on prorata basis per month.

(1) All pending TEPs, of whichever category with any officer, to be transferred to the Investigation Wing. 31.08.2020
(ii) The Investigation Wing shall get, all TEPs received from the field and pending with it, entered in the ITBA module. The work of entering in the ITBA module must be completed by 31.08.2020. The Investigation Wing shall, henceforth, not transfer any TEPs to the field officers. 31.08.2020

3. The completion of above task by each officer will be monitored online by an MIS being issued separately.

With Best Wishes
