New Delhi: The government on Wednesday created an
email id for public to send their ideas and inputs to tackle
issues arising out of black money.

The email -- bm-feedback@nic.in -- has been created on
the server of the National Informatics Centre and the public
can send their responses on the subject with immediate effect,
a senior Finance Ministry officer said.

"General public can send in their responses and inputs
like imposing penalties and making penal provisions to tackle
with the issue," the officer said.

The government has already constituted a committee headed
by Central Board of Direct Taxes Chairman Prakash Chandra to
devise new strategies to deal with the issue. The committee is
expected to submit its recommendations in the next six months.

The email account will be continuously monitored by
Finance Ministry officials and they would place the messages
before the committee headed by the CBDT Chairman.
