25-year-old Ankit Mehra, who started a startup in Delhi two years ago, is doing rounds of banks these days. The lockdown already imposed due to Corona ruined his business. Now when the loan is needed, the banks are asking for three years’ return from them. Mehra’s problem is that the ITR3 form related to his firm is not being submitted on the new website of Income Tax. Similarly, Dinesh Yadav of Ahmedabad is also upset. They too have been circling the banks for the last one and a half months.

Banks were also not getting home loan sanction
CA Harigopal Patidar explains that due to the coronavirus epidemic, a large population of the country needs a loan but they do not have ITR. Till a few days ago, ITR 1 and 2 were also not being filed. Then the work of home loan etc. was also affected. Now there is a problem in ITR3 related to business firms or companies only. Not only this, appeals are also not being made to remove the mistakes made in tax assessment. The government is also getting less tax.
4200 crore spent on income tax portal, result cipher
Patidar says that the government has spent 4200 crores on the income tax portal. The country’s reputed IT company Infosys has worked on this. The motive behind this was to reduce the return verification time from 63 days to one day and speed up the refund process. But the technical aspects have been ignored. According to CA Vikas Agarwal, the work of Chartered Accountants in the country has been affected. Income tax department is not giving any update. This worries the taxpayer.
