Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh Income Tax Free Legal Services Cell (MPCGITFLSC)


Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh Income Tax Free Legal Services Cell (MPCGITFLSC) is an effort to provide legal aid and assistance to the needy, marginalized and weaker sections of the society. Income Tax Department is not only an Enforcement department of the Government but it is also a Service Department, which helps tax payers in discharging their legal obligations. It is the Department, which people expect to be just and fair department to discharge justice. Approaching the Income Tax Department is itself a daunting task, in view of the today's complicated legal system and exorbitant legal fees. Therefore government is trying to simplify the procedure every year.

Sometimes taxpayers feel left out and aggrieved, in their effort to seek justice from the Department. In order to remove this feeling of being deprived, on grounds of lack of funds, social or economical backwardness or any other reason such as disability, old age factors, the concept of providing legal aid through MPCGITFLSC is envisioned to provide free legal aid to the eligible taxpayers.
