Accenture-logoNew Delhi, India, October 18, 2013: Accenture is undertaking a management consulting project to help transform the Maharashtra Government’s Department of Sales Tax to maximize revenue collection and strengthen its enforcement function.

Accenture also will identify a service provider to upgrade the department’s technology infrastructure with the goal of increasing efficiency and updating record maintenance so historical data will be easier to access and identify. The improvements also are expected to make it easier for taxpayers to interact with the department.

Nilaya Varma, Managing Director for Accenture’s Health & Public Service management consulting business in India, said, “The Department of Sales Tax is a major revenue collecting body for the government of Maharashtra, contributing about 60 percent of all revenue. The project will facilitate improved business processes and create multiple channels for service delivery, facilitating prompt action that will lead to improved services and more interactive communication.”

Nitin Kareer, Indian Administrative Services, is commissioner of Sales Tax., Kareer said, “Compounding the matter were the needs of departmental staff which have increased to include workflow automation and smarter systems that can aid in decision making. Accenture has spearheaded a multitude of projects in analytics consulting and, through this partnership, we hope to achieve efficiency in our existing processes. The simplification and streamlining of procedures will support the department in achieving a better control on tax evasion with the help of technology. It also will help in reducing administrative overhead, which is another plus in a time of economic uncertainties.”
