  4. I bought Infrastructure Bond last year and have also applied for tax deduction for 2011 - 2012...
    Just had a confusion, can existing policy holders apply for deduction for 2012 - 2013 or onwards.

    Thankx...

  5. Some miscreants have attachment with Income Tax Inteligence since 60 years of a office. If anybody goes against them in service or business they report the Bank Account details to Income tax Inteligence with the motive to harm their enemies. This relationship is handed over from one generation to another of the same group of miscreants. They have the hold in the same govt. office as well as private business.Now their cicle have been extended in Share Broakers, Post Office agents and clerks. So many innocent people have become their victims as Govt. extended network deducts the amount from the Victim's account without intimating to them as so called recovery. This is unjustice and unlawful in the sight of public of India. Govt. should immediately ban the semi-judicial power misuse of Income Tax Authorities. In such cases the matter should be referred to CBI and the entire truth will come when the victim will tell them all things (How these are fabricated against him). If the Indian Govt. is honest the penel action must be taken against miscreants. Govt. should not be greedy to get easy money. Some of the victims have not breads even to eat and lived a harrashed life all times due to these miscreants. It is only due to not calling the victims before the CBI. And this gives miscreants upper hand. We can help CBI in catching the miscreants as we are being harmed/harrashed by both misreants and Govt.agencies. Supreme Court is also requested to amend such laws and ban the miscreants from shaking hands with Govt. Department(s). As they find themselves fully safe while commiting crimes for their own benefits. No matter other person dies with their acts.
