For Income Tax, all administrative commissioners have been designated as the CPIOs. In Pune, there are 4 Commissioners of Income Tax (CIT). In case you know under whose jurisdiction your case fall, you may address the respective CIT-CPIO. If u do not know, u may address your application to CIT-I, Pune. The address is Aayakar Bhawan, 12 Sadhu Vaswani Chowk, Pune-411001.
Congrats on your success !
Now that you have personal experience of RTI and
its effectiveness, can you please introduce your family, friends
and colleagues to RTI. I am sure they will also find it useful.
Really Great itsraghu that you could get back IT refund in less than 20 days. Actually we have been given with ak47 but if we dont know how to use it, it is our fault. For a corrupt free society each one must be updated in knowledge and know their rights and duties both. If we surrender to wrong non can help us.
Thanks all for the information. I am unclear about just one thing before I proceed to file an RTI app for refund of excess income taxes. I just wanted to know if the DD/IPO for Rs 10/- fees has to be addressed to just "Accounts officer" or "Accounts officer, Central Board of Direct Taxes".
Unfortunately, the details about the CPIO in the Income Tax office in Hyderabad are not provided on the web.
This should be your first bit of information that you ask in your RTI application:
1. Why are details of the CPIO's in various offices of the Income Tax department in Hyderabad not provided on your website incometaxindia.gov.in ?
2. Please provide me the Name and Designation of the officer responsible for putting up this information on your website ?
3. What action will be taken by the Income Tax department against this officer for not displaying this information in the section CPIO/CAPIO link as given on the above mentioned website ?
Then go on to ask for information about your refund.
I suggest call up one of the Chief Commissioners (IT) in Hyderabad and ask for the details of the PIO for your ward/circle.
The telephone numbers of the Chief Commissioners are:
