The second wave of Covid 19 infections is currently ravaging India. The central government has relaxed income tax rules for Covid hospitals, dispensaries, nursing homes, and similar facilities that receive cash payments of Rs 2 lakh or more from patients.

 

The Central Direct Tax Board released a notice that the patient's PAN and payee, as well as their relationship, should be obtained for these transactions. The mentioned relaxation is applicable from 01.04.2021 to 31.05.2021.
