With the new portal of the Income Tax Department being ‘unavailable’ for the past two days, Infosys said late Sunday evening that the emergency maintenance has been completed and is now available. The new income tax filing portal ‘www.incomtax.gov.in’ developed by Infosys was launched on June 7. There are problems with the portal since the beginning. Users are constantly complaining that either the portal is unavailable or is working at a very slow speed. In a tweet made by the Income Tax Department, it was told that the portal is not available since Saturday.
Infosys India Business Unit’s Twitter handle “Infosys India Business” tweeted on Sunday evening that “emergency maintenance work of Income Tax Department’s portal has been completed and now the portal is available again.” We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to the taxpayers.
It is worth noting that in the midst of continuing problems in the portal, the Finance Ministry has summoned Salil Parekh, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Infosys, the major information technology sector company that made the portal. Parekh has been asked to appear before Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. He will have to tell the Finance Minister why the problems persist on the portal even after two months and why they are not being resolved?
