Senior Indian Revenue Service Officers inspire AVM students

On 28th March 2012, a Senior Income Tax Officer Mr. Deepak Vyas with the Joint Commissioner of Income Tax - Surat Mr. Yogesh Surti visited Atmiya Vidya Mandir to guide the students of 11th commerce on the matters of income tax. They introduced themselves and informed the students about the nature of their work.

They gave the students an insight about how income tax is collected and where the collected tax is used. They also explained the students about the various aspects of income tax and highlighted the importance of income tax. The students got aware of the different ways of paying tax and the tax slab system.

The esteemed guests also spent some time answering the queries of the students in a very informative way and guided the students about the various career prospects in this field. It was a unique learning experience for the students to interact with such experienced officials on a personal level, an opportunity that the students feel really grateful about.

Their message to the students was that not paying tax was a crime, so they appealed to them to become responsible citizens i.e. ‘Jagrat Nagrik’ and to spread awareness in the society of the importance of paying tax.

The students now look forward to preparing themselves to become such individuals so as to do their bit in solving the grave problem of tax evasion in the society.
