The appointments committee of Cabinet approved the re-appointment in an order issued on Monday. This would be the second extension for the chairman who was given an additional one-year term last year beginning September.
"The appointments committee of Cabinet approved extension in the re-appointment of Pramod Chandra Mody as chairman, CBDT for a period of six months with effect from 01.09.2020 to 28.02.2021 or until further orders, whichever is earlier," the order from department of personnel and training stated.
Mody would continue his term at a time when the government is continuously pushing reforms to make tax system simple and more transparent. Recent initiation of faceless assessment and faceless appeal - to begin from September 25 - is another step in this direction.
Working mechanisms have drastically changed due to Covid 19 pandemic, with many of tax officers as well as assessees working from remote locations including working from home

Until all common folks i.e. 80% Indians i.e. 100 crores realise thIndian Govt, Judiairy, Press are corrupt and must be dealt with at base evel , all big posts are mere big blood suckers. In Chennai, if you want press to cover your event / concert / dance inaguration / drama / cinema whatever, you must keep 1000 rs along woith invitation. Otherwise, they will only report negatively, sensationally, damagingly. SCRIBES are happy to conduct public trials but not contribute positive value. WE HAVE 66% NON VALUE ADDING PEOPLE IN OUR SOCIETY

Congratulations, my friend and fellow Stephanian PC Mody (IRS 1981) for another term at the helm of India’s direct tax structure- Chairman CBDT.
I and Pramod joined St. Stephen's College , Delhi together in 1975 in the same Course.
