Let us inform that on Tuesday, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had asked Infosys and Nandan Nilekani to rectify the flaws in a tweet regarding the flaws in the new Income Tax e-filing portal of the Income Tax Department.
The new portal was launched by the Income Tax Department on Monday night. Infosys was awarded the contract to develop the next generation income tax filing system in 2019. The aim is to reduce the time taken for processing of returns from 63 days to one day and speed up the refund process. It has been said that the portal has been made better than before, but since its launch, there have been a lot of complaints regarding irregularities in it. Users on Twitter are constantly complaining about its flaws. Taking cognizance of these complaints, the Finance Minister had tweeted.
