The government has introduced the Faceless Penalty Scheme 2021 which will digitise issuing of penalties on assesses under the faceless taxation regime. The government has been trying to make faceless taxation a reality, having introduced faceless assessment and faceless appeals last year and has been relying heavily on technology, artificial intelligence and machine learning to plug as evasion and in turn making assessment of taxes for assessees as seamless as possible.
The scheme specifies setting up of national faceless penalty centres, regional penalty centres, penalty units and review units for execution of penalty proceedings, such that a penalty order is issued correctly and undergoes review before being issued to an assesse. All communication between units and assesse will be done either via email or through mobile app, while physical hearing will be allowed only with approval from CBDT.
