To commemorate the 75 years of independence, Income Tax department of Gujarat has planned several events. To inform and guide students about the sacrifice made by our soldiers and pay them an artistic tribute, a greeting card competition was organised for government school students across Gujarat. Students made over 800 cards for Border Security Force (BSF) soldiers doing their duty on the Kutch border.
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has planned several events across the nation. In this Finance Ministry iconic week, the office of Commissioner of Income Tax (Exemptions), Ahmedabad under the guidance of Principal Chief Commissioner of Income Tax (Exemptions), New Delhi has planned several events.
