The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the proposal for creation of 20,751 additional posts in the Income Tax Department in various cadres that is 1,349 additional posts in the IRS (Indian Revenue Services) cadre and 19,402 additional posts in the non-IRS cadres. This will help the Income Tax Department collect increased revenue and provide better tax payers services. 

An additional expenditure of Rs. 4.5 billion per annum is likely to be incurred on creation of additional posts and upgradation of some existing posts. This additional expenditure would be more than compensated by the increased revenue of more than Rs. 250 billion per annum proposed to be generated as a result of this exercise. 

Despite weak economic conditions, the government has been one of the biggest hirer in the market.

According to the Finance Ministry, the move will also help the Income Tax Department provide better services to tax payers.

“It will not happen in a year but over time, this will help collect increased revenue and provide better taxpayer services,” finance minister P. Chidambaram said in a press briefing.
