Mumbai: To avoid long queues in front of the central bank counters, arrangements have been made at RBI and 926 branches of public and private sector banks in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai to receive advance tax for the December quarter.
"As many as 926 computerised branches of public and private sector banks will receive advance income tax in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. These arrangements have been made for the convenience of the income tax assesses," RBI said in a statement Tuesday.
Long queues and inconveniences can be avoided at the Reserve Bank of India counters if the assesses in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai utilise the services being made available at various designated branches of banks and deposit their income tax dues well in advance of the last date, it added.
