Government Launches Quarterly SMS service for Salaried Persons About their TDS Deductions

Today morning I received a SMS from Finance Minister about Government launching Quarterly SMS service for Salaried Persons About TDS Deductions. Below is the sms or message.

Dear Taxpayer,

Our Government is happy to launch Quarterly SMS service for salaried persons about their TDS deductions.

Arun Jaitley,
Finance Minister

This initiative will initially benefit approximately 2.5 crore salaried cases. The CBDT will soon extend this facility to another 4.4 crore non-salaried taxpayers. The frequency of SMS alerts will be increased, once the process for filing TDS returns is streamlined to receive such information on a real-time basis.

All taxpayers who wish to receive such SMS alerts are advised to update their mobile numbers in their e-filing account.
