I saw a series of advertisements by Department of Income tax in newspapers making people aware of “How Income Tax department can catch you – if you are doing some high value transactions and don’t declare it.”
I guess IT department is going hi-tech and hope they are doing good analytics to get hold of the defaulters.
Here are some numbers published in the below advertisements…
