E-assessment scheme for faceless scrutiny of income tax returns notified

The finance ministry has notified the e-assessment scheme 2019 for conduct of faceless scrutiny assessment of ITRs. The scheme involves creation of e-assessment centres at national and regional level; auto-allocation of cases among these centres; all communication between the department and taxpayer to be purely electronic; communications to be digitally authenticated; and most importantly individual taxpayers would not be required to appear either personally or through authorized representative in relation to the proceedings. Under the scheme, an assessee would be required to submit a reply electronically within 15 days against the scrutiny notice issued under section 143(2).
