We had discussed in our previous post https://www.taxontips.com/new-income-tax-e-filing-website-not-working-and-is-under-maintenance-e-filing-2-0/ that the new Income tax e-filing website, E-filing 2.0 is under maintenance and hence not working.
On 21.08.2021 it was mentioned on the portal (Link for same is as above) that website will be under maintenance for 21.08.2021, however today also the website is under maintenance.
Finally, ministry of Finance on 22.08.2021 has summoned the MD & CEO of Infosys on 23.08.2021 to explain as to why the website is still having so many glitches and errors even after 3 months from it’s release. The tweet is as under:
“Ministry of Finance has summoned Sh Salil Parekh,MD&CEO @Infosys on 23/08/2021 to explain to hon’ble FM as to why even after 2.5 months since launch of new e-filing portal, glitches in the portal have not been resolved. In fact, since 21/08/2021 the portal itself is not available.”
Link for the tweet is: https://twitter.com/IncomeTaxIndia/status/1429358952127492100
People are reacting positively on this move of Ministry of Finance that finally some action is being taken as the new e-filing website was causing a lot of harassment for the professionals and also a lot of time of professionals was getting wasted because of the new website.
However, on the other hand people are still demanding to bring back the old website and give it’s maintenance to TCS.
