Traders' agitation against new IT return forms
Lucknow, June 6: The Uttar Pradesh traders will hold a demonstration in front of the Income Tax office here tomorrow to protest against the change in income tax return forms.
Uttar Pradesh Udyog Vypar Pratinidhi Mandal's president and Samajwadi Party Rajya Sabha member Banwari Lal Kanchal said the traders would not accept the new complicated four-page IT return form.
'' We would bring adjournment motion in parliament against the black form and are ready to hold mass agitation throughout the country if it is not withdrawn immediately,'' he said.
He said on June 21 traders throughout the state will hold demonstration against the new income tax return forms.
Mr Kanchal said the new form would force the people to skip submitting returns as it will require chartered accountants to fill up these forms.
Demanding that the old Saral form be continued, he said the traders would fight for the genuine cause eventhough the service class would be mostly affected by the introduction of the new forms.
