CBDT set up NeAC in Delhi

Central Board of Direct Tax (CBDT) has set up the National e-Assessment Centre (NeAC) in Delhi. NeAc aims to expand the scope of e-governance and ease of doing business. The move comes after the announcement by PM Modi during the National Conference of Tax Officials in 2017 to create a transparent and corruption-free assessment system.


Aim:

NeAc will assess tax returns electronically without any personal contact between officials and taxpayers. It will reduce human discretion in assessments and scrutiny. This will put an end to corruption by using new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, video conferencing, telecommunication application software and mobile applications.

Member of NeAC:
  • CBDT appointed Krishna Mohan Prasad as the first Principal Chief Commissioner of Income Tax (PrCCIT) of NeAC. Mr.Prasad is a 1984 batch Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer. 
  • He was posted as Director General of Income Tax (Intelligence and Criminal Investigation). Ashish Abrol has been appointed the Assistant Commissioner of Income Tax.
  • The assessment centre will have 619 officers in total. The member body constitutes of 4 Chief Commissioners, 25 Principal Commissioners, one Commissioner, 144 Additional Commissioners, 163 Deputy Commissioners, and 281 Income Tax Officers.
