Under the Scanner
Have you paid your taxes. Are you paying more than you did previously? They you may be under the IT scanner too. For all the wrong reasons. You need a refund? You won't get it easy. Until some 'formalities' are completed. The IT department is sitting on 1000 crores of unpaid refunds. Read it here. No wonder people look for ways to evade tax.
Most harassment comes from the Government departments. And the private ones are at times as bad.
There are millions who use unlicenced software. They have no reason to worry. In fact, they are probably happy. They have saved a lot of money. But the minute you buy licensed software, your details are immediately noted. Microsoft, Corel, Adobe... atleast those are the ones we use at work.
It is interesting that calls, mails, visits are made to only those who have bought software. MS for instance makes innumerable calls. And besides they are not polite either. Bill Gates would not sound as pompous.
You tell them you have no IT Manager.
How is it possible? We need a software audit.
Call later, we are busy.
No it is urgent.
The calls increase. The mails increase. Until we tell them, they are free to come down and check.
We are in Delhi.
Then please do not harass.
There are so many who have no legal software. Yet you harass those who buy, just because you have our name and contact numbers????
While we continue to do what we feel right, it does not feel 'right' anymore. But we cannot do anything else. Any solutions?
