Jharkhand launches online road permit system to check tax evasion

Share |

RANCHI: The state commercial taxes department on Monday launched e-road permit for goods going out of Jharkhand. The system was launched by advisor to the governor Madhukar Gupta in the presence of his colleague K Vijay Kumar and state chief secretary R S Sharma at the secretariat.

According to sources in the department, the system is expected to reduce rush at district commercial tax offices and also increase revenue generation because of hassle-free process. At present, many people avoid payment of taxes on time because of delay in processing and most of them even try to evade payment of taxes by using the same permit time and again.

State commercial taxes secretary M R Meena said the online permit system had been developed by experts that would help the department keep a watch on movement of raw materials and finished products out of Jharkhand. The facility will be available for traders and industries from Monday onwards but it will be optional till May 31 as manual permits will also be on use.

"From June 1, it will be mandatory for every trader and industry to use online permits only and anyone not using the online permit will have to face penal action," Meena said adding that any permit issued online would be valid for 24 hours because geographical area of the state is small and any truck can cross the border. "If the permit is not used within 24 hours, it will expire."

The secretary has expressed hope that the revenue of the state will increase after the system becomes compulsory as it has been noticed that a number of traders use the same permit several times. "On our part, we will carry out surprise checks on interstate border so that traders violating the rule are caught and punished," he added.

However, Meena did not quantify the benefit of the state in terms of increased revenue with implementation of the system.
