Sitharaman said that the department is setting an example for the world in the use of technology for delivery of better services to the taxpayers.

According to sources, she met IT officials on Friday and thanked them for their tireless efforts  during the last two months to make the vision of the Prime Minister a reality by bringing in the faceless assessment system in a short time.

She told them to work with the same zeal and dedication to make the faceless appeal system an equal success.

Expressing her appreciation for the officers and staff of the Income Tax Department, she said that now the department has to serve the taxpayers with much higher standards to meet the commitments  made in the taxpayers charter with the motto of "Transparent Taxation - Honouring The Honest".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday launched the platform 'Transparent Taxation', which rolled out a faceless assessment, appeal and rights' charter for taxpayers.
