Details Of 21000 vacancies in 2013-2014:
There has been huge shortage of manpower in Income Tax Department for years and IT department has been putting this as an excuse for the loss in the tax collections over years. Few months back, a proposal was given to government to hire tax personnel at various levels to boost tax collections, which has been accepted now.
The tax department has for long complained of insufficient manpower impacting collections. The latest move is expected to cost around Rs 450 crore annually. “This additional expenditure would be more than compensated by the increased revenue of more than Rs 25,000 crore per annum proposed to be generated as a result of this exercise,” Chidambaram said.
The recruitment in the Income tax Department will be done at various levels, but, it is still unclear whether this recruitment will be conducted through Staff Selection Commission (SSC) or Income Tax Department will manage the recruitment process on it own. Since, approval has been given for the recruitment process, the details of the recruitment process will be made public shortly
