The much-awaited draft of the Income Tax code, which is expected to simplify and replace the existing law, is ready and will be released along with a discussion paper, according to Finance Minister P Chidambaram, but he did not put any time-frame for its release.
"The Income Tax code is ready as of yesterday. But I am not in a position to release the code because I have decided that I will release it along with a discussion paper," said Chidambaram.
The discussion paper would explain the reasons for writing the code, what are the changes between the old law and the new law and the rationale of these changes, he said.
Once the discussion paper is ready, the code would be released along with it for consultation.
The draft code will be subject to discussion for one year and introduced no earlier than two years after that.




Chidambaram said the code is not an amendment to the Income Tax Act, but was based on different assumptions for an emerging economy.


Mr. P. Chidambram said "I am not taking IT Act and amending it. I am writing a new code, based on very different assumptions, very different postulates, very different outlook to direct taxes,".
