PARIVARTAN

Already mentionned on our NGO-blog in a text on August 16, 2006 (it’s link is no more working).

  • Parivartan is a movement against extortionist type of corruption, where people have to pay bribes to get their legitimate work done in Government.
  • Appeal to the public: Don’t pay bribes for your legitimate rights. Unite and resist such demands.
  • Support from Parivartan: If you are based in Delhi and are being demanded bribes to get your grievance resolved in Income Tax Department or Delhi Vidyut Board, please do not pay bribes. Contact Parivartan.
  • Parivartan will try and get your work done without payment of bribes.
  • Parivartan is doing it as a social service and is not charging anything for its service. (Homepage).

Mission /Income Tax Refunds/ PAN: A common taxpayer has to face a lot of problems in getting his refund or Permanent Account Number from the Income Tax Department. 

More often than not, he ends up paying a bribe to get his refund. Parivartan has been collecting taxpayer grievances in Delhi on account of non-receipt of refunds. All such grievances are regularly handed over to the Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, Delhi for their redressal.

The grievances received till now have been studied and analysed by Parivartan. The analysis of these grievances and interaction with a large number of taxpayers helped Parivartan in identifying the problems faced by taxpayers. Parivartan suggested some measures, which if implemented, could remove corruption in this area. The measures suggested are simple, do not require any legal amendments or any additional expenditure and can be implemented through administrative orders.

Parivartan presented this analysis of the problems and the measures alongwith the grievances to the Chief Commissioner of Income Tax and requested him not only to resolve the grievances but also to implement the measures suggested by Parivartan.

Parivartan is now striving to have the grievances resolved and to have these measures implemented so that such grievances do not recur in future. Already, a large number of grievances have been resolved by the Department. Parivartan filed a Public Interest Litigation in Delhi High Court in the last week of July, 2000. Hon’ble Court directed the Department to consider and implement these suggestions. However, the Income Tax Department did not take any action on Court’s directions. Parivartan waited for three months for the Department to implement these suggestions. When the Department did not take any steps, Parivartan again filed a petition in Delhi High Court in Dec, 2000 which is pending.

We are still receiving the grievances of the public on this account. If you are also not getting your refund or PAN and the IT staff expects/demands a bribe from you, please do not pay a bribe. Tell us …  (full long text).
