Pleasant Surprise. True e-Government

I made an online contribution to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund at the time of Kerala floods. Hundreds of thousands of people must have contributed and I was wondering how to get the tax certificate to claim the allowed tax reduction on it.

I had earlier mentioned that the tax rebate could go into the future donation corpus.

I made the transfer from my Bank account and there the provisions for my tax account number or telephone number were not available.

In fact I was wondering later whether I should have used the government site to make the contribution where there is a form to be filled in.

I have this verified whatsapp message from ‘Kerala Government’ and obviously they have a method to electronically extract contact details of contributers from the Bank account.

Pretty smart indeed!
