West Bengal: ICICI Bank launches tax collection service
Private sector bank ICICI Bank Ltd on Thursday launched a service in West Bengal to collect state government taxes at all of its branches in the state as well as through its internet banking facility.
This service will help the tax payers, irrespective of having account with ICICI Bank or not, to pay taxes to the state government at any of its branches in West Bengal.
To avail this service, the tax payers will have to log-in to the website of the Finance Department, Government of West Bengal to generate a challan, after putting in details of tax payments.
The challan along with cash/cheque/demand draft can be deposited at any ICICI Bank branch for tax payments. Tax payers can also make payments online through ICICI Bank's internet banking facility.
Anirudh Kamani, General Manager, ICICI Bank, said: "We are extremely happy to be associated with the state government in extending technology-based services to the people of West Bengal. This initiative is in line with the ICICI Bank's philosophy of 'khayaal aapka' wherein we put customer's convenience first. We believe that this new facility, in addition to our online facility, will offer more convenience and ease to tax payers in the state. We look forward to more such opportunities for associating with the state government in the near future."
