CBEC to keep its offices open on last three days of this Month

Government of India, Ministry of Finance, Department of Revenue, Central Board of Excise & Customs
Subject:  Opening of offices during the week beginning 24th March, 2014 – reg.As you are aware, the bulk of the revenue is received at the end of the month.  However, last week of March 2014 does not have full working days. 29th March is a Saturday, 30th March is a Sunday and 31st March is a public holiday in some parts of the country.  Incidentally, this week also happens to be the last week of the financial year.
2.         The Chairperson, CBEC has also requested the Secretary Financial Services to issue instructions to have the banks open for full day on 29th, 30th and 31st March 2014 so that the efforts made for collections of revenue are reflected appropriately.
3.         I am, therefore, directed to request you to immediately issue trade notices for the information of the trade and also keep your offices, as a special measure, opened on 29th, 30th & 31st March, 2014.  You may also contact the local banks to ensure that the assesses can make their payments electronically and these are uploaded to reflect the actual revenue collections for the financial year.
Yours faithfully,
(Surendra Singh)
Under Secretary to the Govt. of India
