India's taxmen get tech support to nail evaders
Mipra and Prime Match will soon make life more difficult for tax evaders in India. Neither is a new law or scheme that India’s finance minister has dreamt up to penalize people who do not pay tax; India has just around 30 million taxpayers. Mipra and Prime Match are search-engine tools developed by Hyderabad-based software firm Posidex Technologies Pvt. Ltd. They are part of a quiet initiative by the tax department to create what it calls a complete taxpayer’s profile (TPP) using software that will “dig out all information about one person on a single screen from as little information as a name," according to a senior official at the Income-Tax department.
