This is the second such income disclosure scheme that gives tax evaders another chance to come clean. The first scheme, which began in June closed on 30 September.

However, unlike the earlier income declaration scheme, a tax evader will have to first pay the tax, put money in the deposit scheme and then make a declaration—either online or at an income tax office.

The government has tightened the noose on black money holders and is planning to apply technology like data analytics and data mining to sift accounts of black money holders from the deposits made up to December 30.

The new scheme offers tax dodgers confidentially and immunity from prosecution.

Under the scheme, a declarant of undisclosed income needs to pay a tax of 30%, a penalty of 10% and a Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Cess of 33% on the tax, all of which add up to around 50%.

In addition, the declarant will have to deposit 25% of the undisclosed income in the zero-interest Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Deposit Scheme for four years. He needs to furnish his permanent account number (PAN) while making his declaration. Part of the proceeds of the scheme will be used for welfare schemes for the poor.
