Jammu: Income Tax Department has obtained more than Rs 224 crore unidentified income disclosed by 611 declarants in the state under the Income Declaration Scheme, which came to an end on September 30.
Sources in Income Tax department said that J&K’s performance in announcing undeclared or black money during the special scheme period has remained on top among the other Income Tax zones of Himachal Pradesh and Punjab, which come under North West Region controlled from Chandigarh.
Sources further said J&K is also ahead on achieving routine tax collection targets.
Total amount of income declared under the scheme by the assesses from the State stood at Rs 224.52 crore from 611 declarations made.
