As you arc aware, the Directorate General of Systems has been regularly taking several initiatives to enable the field formations to closely monitor the compliance levels in the Service Tax. Both in ACES as well as in EDW, there are several methods for identifying the Non-filers and Stop-filers of ST-3 Returns. The Directorate General of Systems has taken steps to send bulk mails to Non-filers and Stop-filers of ST-3 Returns, so that they actively participate in the filing. As on date, as many as 6,80,000 emails have been sent by DO Systems to such Non-filers/Stop filers. The Zone-wise number of Non-Filers/Stop Filers of ST 3 Returns is attached at Annexurc “A”. However, the registration details, etc. of these Non-Filers/Stop Filers of ST 3 Returns, have been emailed by DG Systems to all the Commissionerate ‘Com Admins’ to initiate action.
