SIMPLY INTAXICATING - TAX ADMINISTRATION REFORM COMMISSION (TARC) It is generally said that tax reforms and tax administration reforms should go hand in hand but it has not happened in India. Before exiting the UPA-II Government had set up one Tax Administration Reform Commission headed by Dr Parthasarathy Shome who submitted as many as FOUR Reports - the last being just before the Union Budget 2015. In his Budget Speech the Union Finance Minister, Mr Arun Jaitley, said that the Ministry of Finance has been examining the key recommendations of the Commission and some of them would be implemented in the due course of time. TIOL Founder Editor Shailendra Kumar held a discussion with four noted former Revenue officials on major recommendations of the Commission and explored the viability and feasibility of implementation of the key recommendations. And the panelists are Former CBEC Chairman Sumit Dutt Majumder; Former CBDT Member S S Khan, Former JS, TPL & Foreign Taxation, CBDT, D P Sengupta and Former JS, TRU in CBEC T R Rustagi.
