Tribune News Service

Yamunanagar, April 20

The Central Information Commission (CIC) has ordered the Income Tax Department to provide information on a survey conducted to identify firms, which paid income tax and penalty.

GD Gupta, member, District Bar Association, Yamunanagar, had sought information regarding the survey conducted in 2013-14 (from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2014) in Jagadhri on September 28, 2015.

Gupta said the Central Public Information Officer (CPIO) of the Income Tax Department declined to furnish the information under Section 8(1)(h) and 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act and his orders were upheld by the first appellate authority.

“Thereafter, I filed second appeal under Section 19(3) of the RTI Act before the Central Information Commission,” said Gupta.

He said that Vimal Julka, CIC, heard both parties through video-conferencing on April 11 and passed orders to income tax officials to give the requisite information within 15 days.
