The Income Tax Department today launched an app that allows entities track TDS, pay taxes and apply for permanent account number (PAN).
It will also help people link their 12-digit biometric identifier Aadhaar with PAN card.
The mobile app 'Aaykar Setu', launched by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, literally means taxpayer's bridge and is available on Android phones.
"This is a very important step forward by the CBDT and the principle reason being technology as a very powerful tool becomes an enabler. (With the app) most of the work the assessee can discharge without any external help sitting at home," the minister said.
