Fin Min to form four new service tax zones and 15 new service tax commissionerates

New Delhi, September 15, 2013(PTI): Expecting an increase in revenue from service tax, the Finance Ministry may set-up a new anti-evasion and intelligence unit to check leakage of any indirect tax.
The issue of creating such a separate unit had

come up for discussion
during a recent meeting
of Chief Commissioners
and Directors General of
Customs, Central Excise
and Service Tax here.
It was recommended
during the meet that the
mandate of Directorate
General (service tax),
based in Mumbai, should
be enhanced and it
should be assigned the
work relating to
intelligence and antievasion, according to the minutes of the meeting.
A proposal in this regard has already been submitted to the Finance Ministry.
The Directorate General of Service Tax coordinates between the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) and
central excise commissionerates. It also monitors the collection and the assessment of service tax.
During the two-day meet, a group on ‘Way Forward; Service Tax’ had suggested creation of a separate service tax
intelligence organisation and also creation of specialised groups under service tax commissionerates.
“Recommendations on administrative side include creation of four new service tax zones and 15 new service tax
commissionerates and also audit and appeal commissionerate.
“The group also highlighted the high pendency of adjudications in the service tax commissionerate and
recommended four posts of commissioners (adjudication),” it said.
Finance Minister P Chidambaram, who inaugurated the conference on July 17, had noted that service tax revenue is
bound to increase in future as it has shown steady growth so far.
The proposed organisation, if comes into force, may be assigned a task of collecting intelligence related to service
tax evasion and disseminate it among various field units and agencies, official sources said.

Why didnt the ministry looks to increase the staff in the service tax front.The service tax assessees are in huge numbers and so goes the leakage.The present staff is there to look after the work of Central Excise...(We got appointed as Central Excise Inspectors)...Govt has not made any appointment in the name of Service tax ever since its inception in 1994.Untill and unless proper staffing is done,Service tax will continue to lag behind to generate its potential revenue...
