Every year, BSNL employees are required to manually submit tax declaration forms, which is a time-consuming and inefficient process. In letter dated April 5, 2024, the BSNL management instructed employees to furnish their declarations using Form 12BB to the concerned DDOS/AO(Pay/HCM/Cash) by April 20, 2024.

To streamline this process, the association urge the Director (Finance) to incorporate a feature in the ESS module of the ERP portal, which would allow employees to select their preferred tax regime (Old or New under section 115BAC) and save their particulars electronically.

The introduction of an online facility offers several advantages, including eliminating the need for manual submission, reducing errors, streamlining data management, and enhancing efficiency in tax administration.

AIGETOA believes that implementing this proposal will not only alleviate the burden on employees and administrative staff but also contribute to overall operational efficiency within BSNL.
