Restructuring of the Income Tax Department 

The Union Cabinet today approved the proposal for creation of 20,751 additional posts in the Income Tax Department in various cadres that is 1349 additional posts in the IRS cadre and 19,402 additional posts in the non-IRS cadres. This will help the Income Tax Department collect increased revenue and provide better tax payers services. 

An additional expenditure of Rs. 449.71 crore per annum is likely to be incurred on creation of additional posts and upgradation of some existing posts. This additional expenditure would be more than compensated by the increased revenue of more than Rs. 25,000 crore per annum proposed to be generated as a result of this exercise.

The drive was re-launched to fill up the remaining identified backlog vacancies by the end of the financial year i.e. 31.03.2012. All Ministries/Departments were requested to make concerted efforts to ensure that the remaining backlog reserved vacancies of SCs, STs and OBCs were filled up by 31st March, 2012. 

The achievement of the Special Recruitment Drive on its conclusion on 31st March, 2012, as reported by various Ministries/Departments is as follows: 

(i) A total of 75,522 backlog vacancies were identified. Of these, 44,427 were in the direct recruitment quota and 31,095 in the promotion quota. 

(ii) Of the 44,427 backlog vacancies in the direct recruitment quota, 28,588 have been filled up so far. The success rate in direct recruitment quota is therefore 64.35 percent . 

(iii) Out of 31,095 backlog vacancies in the promotion quota, there are 11,347 vacancies (SC 4,239 & ST 7,106) for which eligible candidates are not available even in the extended zone of consideration. Therefore, it has not been found possible to fill up these vacancies. Out of the remaining 19,748 vacancies in the promotion quota, 19,446 vacancies have been filled up so far. After excluding the vacancies for which candidates are not available, achievement of the drive in respect of the promotion quota is 98.47 percent.
