What is the Vivad Se Vishwas Scheme all about?

This is a direct tax scheme that was proposed in Budget 2020 for resolving tax conflicts between individuals and the Income tax department. Previously, the scheme gave taxpayers a complete waiver of interest and penalty, as well as a full and final resolution of the conflict, if the scheme was followed.

It has also been agreed that the deadline for paying the sum due under the Direct Tax Vivad se Vishwas Act, 2020, without interest, will be extended until June 30, 2021.
