CBIC-DIN comes into force from today

The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Custom's (CBIC's) unique Document Identification Number (DIN) which will ensure transparency and accountability in the working of tax officials has come into force from Saturday.

This system in indirect tax administration has been created as per the direction of Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. Now, any CBIC communication will have to have a Documentation Identification Number and both direct and indirect taxpayers are now able to verify the genuineness of the communication received by them.

In the beginning, the department will use this unique document identification number (CBIC-DIN) primarily for the investigation related matters such as notices for search and arrest but it will be expanded to cover all communications of the department by the end of the year.

"All the communications issued on or after November 8 without a computer generated document identification number will be invalid and deemed to have never been issued", said the CBIC.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) had already implemented DIN in all its communication from October 1 this year.

"The board also directs that any specified communication which does not bear the electronically generated DIN and is not covered by the exceptions mentioned in para 3 shall be treated as invalid and shall be deemed to have never been issued", said the CBIC in the letter addressed to all principal commissioners, principal director generals, chief commissioners, director generals, principal commissioners, principal ADGs and joint secretaries and commissioners.
