Direct Tax Code will inaugrate a new phaze of income Tax Act but it should be implemented in a new and improved means because so many persons are there in India who evade tax by using so many unauthorised practices so i would like to tell that i should be cover each and every persons whose income are required to be taxed under DTC means there should not be any ground to evade tax.

Thanks.
