Prime Minister’s Award for Excellence in Governance and Administration
The Integrated Tax Payer Data Management System (ITDMS) developed by the Income Tax Department was conferred the Prime Minister’s Award for excellence in governance and administration at Vigyan Bhawan on the Civil Service Day on 21st April 2010. The software converts information in various databases into actionable intelligence. The project was initially launched as pilot for one year to customize name search engine, and later ITDMS was developed into an Enterprise Level Solution.
The I-T team under the leadership of the then Director General of Income Tax (Investigation) Shri S. S. Khan developed this indigenous software solution to create a comprehensive database of all financial affairs of individuals and groups. The Directorates of I-T Investigation are using the information developed through ITDMS for developing intelligence and investigation purposes. The software solution helps collating transactions of any entity or group of inter-related entities for investigation in a non-intrusive manner.
The Award was received by a team consisting of Shri S. S. Khan, Shri Milap Jain and Shri G.T.V. Rao.
