Govt seeks public views online on black money issue

The email --  bm-feedback@nic.in -- has been created on the server of the National Informatics Centre and the public can send their responses on the subject with immediate effect, a senior Finance Ministry officer said.
    
"General public can send in their responses and inputs like imposing penalties and making penal provisions to tackle with the issue," the officer said.
    
The government has already constituted a committee headed by Central Board of Direct Taxes Chairman Prakash Chandra to devise new strategies to deal with the issue. The committee is expected to submit its recommendations in the next six months.
    
The email account will be continuously monitored by Finance Ministry officials and they would place the messages before the committee headed by the CBDT Chairman.
