The debate about the new e-filing portal of the Income Tax Department is still going on. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman herself had to tweet in this regard on Tuesday. Not only this, he had also sought an answer from Infosys chairman and co-founder Nandan Nilekani regarding the irregularities. On this, Neelkani presented her clarification on Wednesday. At the same time, Infosys apologized for the mistakes on the part of the company.
Nilekani wrote in the tweet, “The new e-filing portal will simplify the process and enhance the user experience. Sitharaman ji, we have seen some technical issues on the first day and are working to resolve them. Infosys regrets these initial glitches and expects the entire system to be fixed within this week.
Finance Minister had sought answer
The new portal was launched on Monday night by the Income Tax Department to ease the process of filing ITR and give quick refunds. But in this, users had to face a lot of problems from the beginning. Therefore, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman tagged the chairman of Infosys in a tweet and sought a reply from him. He wrote, “The much awaited e-filing portal 2.0 was launched last night at 20:45. I found many complaints and errors in my TL. Hope the quality of service being provided by @Infosys and @NandanNilekani will not disappoint us and our taxpayers. Ease of compliance should be our priority.”
joke on social media
People had high hopes from the new income tax portal, but people were disappointed as it crashed soon after the launch. After the crash of the new portal, users on social media are making various types of memes on it. #incometaxportal was trending on Twitter since morning. Taking a jibe at the Income Tax Department, a user posted the scene of the film with the dialogue of ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’. So there some users shared a laughing emoji.
