Test the new Income Tax Portal before making it live for Public use: Delhi High Court
Delhi High Court said that the new Income Tax Software should first be tested on a sample basis, before making it useful for the public. The Court also added that Technology cannot be used as a basis for harassing assessees even as digitization is being implemented at a rapid pace and human interface is sought to be reduced by the Income-Tax Department.
In a hearing held on 26th Aug, the court had given instances of glitches and shortcomings in the computer program and software. The DGIT (systems) Pragya Saksena, who joined the proceedings on Friday, assured the court that the Directorate will be able to resolve the glitches and revert with solutions, if possible, within a fortnight.
The Court Further Directed the Income Tax Department to file the Status report within 2 Weeks.
