The terms of reference of the Commission include a review of the existing mechanism of dispute resolution and methods to widen tax base. Further the TARC would recommend measures to strengthen inter-agency information sharing between CBDT, CBEC, FIU, Enforcement Directorate, and also with the banking and financial sector.
