Option to dispose of disputed charges

What happens from conflict to trust scheme

The scheme started on 17 March 2020. With the controversy, the trust scheme has been started by the central government. This is the plan of the Ministry of Finance. The main objective of this scheme is to rid the people of the tax dispute. People should not fall in the mess of court, and take advantage of this scheme and settle the tax related dispute. More than 4 lakh cases related to direct tax in the country are pending in the court. This scheme is effective to deal with it. In this, the taxpayers only have to pay the disputed tax amount. The government is exempted from interest and penalties.
