How to declare Undisclosed Income (Black Money) under PMGKY online? | New Income Declaration Scheme

After a reasonable success of its first Income Declaration Scheme (IDS), the central government has again come up new IDS called as Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana.  This is the second income disclosure scheme brought in by the government this year, and the first after the cancellation of old high-value banknotes on 8 November, 2016.

The new IDS has been notified along with other provisions of the Taxation Laws (Second Amendment) Act, 2016, on 16th December and has come into effect from 17th December, 2016.

Tax evaders can declare their undisclosed or black-money under PMGKY Scheme till 31st March, 2017.

Under this scheme, a declarant of undisclosed income needs to pay a Tax of 30%, a Penalty of 10% and a Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Cess of 33% on the tax, all of which add up to around 50%.

In addition to the above penalty, the declarant will have to deposit 25% of the undisclosed income in the zero-interest ‘Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Deposit Scheme 2016‘ for four years.

Under the old Income Declaration Scheme, a tax evader has to first declare the undisclosed income and then has to pay the tax penalty & dues. Whereas, under PMGKY Scheme, the procedure is as below;

  • Let’s assume a tax evader is declaring Rs 1 Lakh as undisclosed income under this scheme.
  • A tax evader has to first pay Tax on the black-money (or) undisclosed that he/she is going to declare under the new scheme.
    • The applicable income tax on Rs 1 Lakh is @ 30% –> Rs 30,000
    • Applicable Surcharge is @ 33% on tax –> Rs 9,900
    • Applicable penalty is @ 10% on undisclosed income (Rs 1 Lakh) –> Rs 10,000
    • So, the total tax is Rs 49,900 (Rs 30k + Rs 9.9k + Rs 10k).
  • Tax can be paid online through e-Filing portal (or) at bank branches (the necessary PMGKY Challans have been made available at any bank branch other than Co-operative bank or Post office branches).
  • Has to put 25% of the declared income i.e., Rs 25,000 in the PMGKY Deposit Scheme. This is locked for four years and no interest income on this deposit is paid to the declarant. The declarant has to take acknowledgment receipt from the bank/post office. (As per Govt’s latest notification, the deposit of 25% of the declared income under this Scheme can be made, on one or more occasions. The deposits shall be made before filing declaration – updated on 08-Feb-2017.)
  • After paying the applicable taxes & depositing 25% of the declared income, the tax evader has to submit Form-1 through online or offline modes. The declarant has to provide personal details, contact details, PAN, declared income details, tax paid details & PMGKY deposit acknowledgment details in Form 1.
  • After receiving the Form 1, the IT department will issue Form 2 (acknowledging the receipt of form-1 & taxes) to the declarant within 30 days of receiving Form1.

If your income has been property accounted for, you can deposit unlimited amount of cash in your bank account. No worries at all!

In case, you have black money or undisclosed income, do not think that you can convert it into white money just by depositing it in bank account(s). It is a mis-conception!

As per the Govt, this is going to be the last chance to convert your black money in to white money through an IDS Scheme. Kindly note that the declarations made under PMGKY scheme will be kept confidential, and those coming clean will not be prosecuted under other legislations such as Central Excise Act, Wealth Tax Act, Companies Act,

However, there will be no immunity from prosecution under criminal acts like the Prevention of Corruption Act and Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

The government has also encouraged people to come forward with information about tax evaders by emailing such information to blackmoneyinfo@incometax.gov.in.

    Hi,
    We made a online tax payment of 50% of disclosed income on 31st-March. However, due to bank closing pressure, we were not able to do the 25% deposit with the bank. Now, after 31st, the bank r not accepting the deposit. How do we move forward as our tax payment is done but not deposit and hence we are not able to submit Form 1
    Thanks,

    We have paid taxes and made PMGKY deposit. However, we don’t have the acknowledgement/deposit reference number for the PMGK deposit. We just have certificate ID that we got from RBI after the creation of BLA.

    Please assist.

    Thanks,

  • ravi says:

    If undisclosed amount were deposited in Cooperative society what details should be filled in form 1 as they do not have a direct IFSC code.

  • Rakesh says:

    I have visited SBI and RBI they are not accepting under this scheme to deposit cash of 1000 rps 10 lakhs, pls help what is the process

    • Dear Rakesh,
      Are these old high denomination notes?
      If these old HDN, you have to first get them exchanged at RBI centres and then can deposit the required amount in SBI under PMGKY.

  • Balaram says:

    After one has paid the tax, surcharge and penalty etc, How do you deposit the 25% of declared amt in PMGKY? Is there an online portal for this? That is after you filled in the challan 287 and depositing the amt. Because without that the online FORM 1 becomes incomplete.
