Cabinet likely to consider DTC Bill on Thursday

Cabinet likely to consider DTC Bill on Thursday

Struggling to meet the deadline of introducing a much awaited tax reforms bill, the Cabinet is likely to consider the Direct Taxes Code on Thursday, a move aimed at rationalising rates and improving tax compliance.

A proposal is before the Union Cabinet for consideration and passage of the DTC Bill, a source told PTI.

The government plans to introduce DTC, which will replace the archaic Income Tax Act, from next fiscal. The government is, however, unlikely to meet the deadline for introduction of yet another important piece of tax reforms - the Goods and Services Tax.

If introduced in the monsoon session that ends on August 31, the DTC Bill is expected to be referred to a Parliamentary Standing Committee on finance and may be passed during the winter session to make the reforms effective from the deadline -- April 1, next year.
