Sources said the window period could be notified by the end of this month or by early July and the time given could be as short as two months.

"A team of Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) is working on the draft of the proposed compliance window. After vetting from the Department of Revenue it will be sent to the Finance Minister's office for final approval," the sources said.

They added the window could be kept 'as short as possible' as a 'trend analysis' of the subject has shown that the target audience for this special exercise would not be a very large base.

"The compliance window to declare overseas blackmoney or unreported income is expected to be a short and quick affair. A two-month time period is being thought to be enough for the person wanting to avail the one-time facility and also for the taxman to process it," they added.

Sources stated, “The Finance Ministry is working to notify the compliance mechanism by the end of this month or the first half of July."

It is also understood that the CBDT is in touch with the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on blackmoney to decide the eligibility of seeking the compliance window help in those cases where the taxman and other enforcement agencies have deployed their scanners and started probe or issued notices based on some evidence.
