The Central Information Commission observes that in case cable operator gives wrong information about the number of subscribers, there is a possibility of loss of revenue to the Excise department. The Commission recommends the Public Authority to develop a mechanism to have exact list of cable subscribers so that tax is collected based on the exact no. of subscribers. Though it appears to be an information issue, it is also an issue of revenue. If you want to file RTI online, please visit out guide on how to file RTI Online here!
During the hearing, when queried as to why the list of subscribers was not furnished, the Commissioner of Excise Delhi submitted that they do not have such a list. When queried as to how they would assess the tax without verifying the list of subscribers, it was the submission of Respondent officer that they depend on MSOs for the information and tax assessment.
