Shortage of Manpower 
PARA 72.
During the oral evidence the Committee referred to the fact that atalmost every discussion involving Department of Revenue during their on-the-spot visits, the point regarding shortage of manpower and its effect on theefficient functioning of tax departments has always been raised. In thisconnection,
the Secretary (Revenue) stated the following:
"We do believe that this is a serious problem which we need to address,particularly during the last few years our revenue collection has gone upenormously. It is almost doubled over the past five or six years and thenumber of taxpayers has increased. Our ability to look at the kind of returnsthat they are getting, the responsibility has increased. In fact, we are having aserious problem. The main difficulty that has arisen is that according to theDoPT norms, we have to bring down the total number, the total manpower bygiven percentage every year . So this has been affecting us for the last five or six years. We have not been recruiting effectively at the grass root level. I donot think that we can really progress much in this because ultimately whatever potential is there for collection has not been fully realised because of lack of  manpower. So, we had taken up with the Cabinet the question of exemptingus from this DoPT norm. The Cabinet referred it to the Committee of Secretaries. We had a meeting of the Committee of Secretaries. Two thingswere decided there that immediately for the CBEC, 1,400 new posts could befilled up. That can be immediately done and for the CBDT, 3,300 posts can befilled up. That will be basically at the lower level which you were referring to sothat that problem to a certain extent can be sorted out. But it was also decidedthat both the Departments may work out their own what they consider to bethe kind of structure that is required for maximum revenue collection and then itcan be brought again to the Committee of Secretaries for a decision. Two or three weeks ago, we received a proposal from the CBEC which wasconsidered by the Finance Secretary, myself and the Secretary DoPT. Certainqueries were raised by Expenditure and DoPT and we now propose to hold afurther meeting. Thereafter, we will collectively take it to the Committee of Secretaries and based on the decision taken by the Committee of Secretaries,it will go to the Cabinet. A similar exercise has been undertaken by the CBDT.They have just submitted their proposal. I think day after tomorrow; we arehaving a meeting with the Finance Secretary and the Secretary of DoPTwhere we will be looking at the structure. Meanwhile an action has alreadybeen initiated to fill these 1,400 posts in CBEC and 3,300 posts in the CBDT.
