President Kovind addresses 71st batch of IRS, calls them frontline soldiers

New Delhi, Mar 23 (ANI): Officer-trainees of the 71st batch of the Indian Revenue Service called on the President Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Friday. Addressing the officer-trainees, the President said, "The Indian Revenue Service plays a pivotal role in collection of direct taxes - such as income tax, corporate taxes and wealth tax.

Tax revenue is a reflection of the health of the economy." The President added, "The President said that IRS officers are frontline soldiers in the battle against black money. The government has put in place various steps to eradicate or at least minimise the curse of black money - demonetisation, the Income Declaration Scheme, the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana and the Benami Transactions Prohibition Act among others.

Each of these measures requires cooperation and follow-up on the part of officers of their Service."
