The National Academy Of Direct Taxes (NADT), Nagpur is the apex training institute for the officers of the Income Tax Department. Young officers recruited through the coveted Civil Services Examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission, receive their 16-month-long Induction Training at NADT.
On July 24, 2019, NADT celebrated the 159th Income Tax Investiture Day or Income Tax Day by way of a plantation drive, thus taking a step towards fulfilling its environmental responsibility.
In addition to the tree plantation drive, several other activities like essay writing competition, slogan competition were held. The Academy was lighted and decorated on this august occasion.
Under the leadership of Asha Agarwal, PrDG(Trg.), NADT, about 200 officers including the faculty and the officer trainees, celebrated the Income Tax Day by planting one tree each in the Academy campus spread over 67 acres.
In her address, Asha Agarwal, Pr. DG, NADT emphasised the need for a paradigm shift in thinking of the department from being an enforcement agency to a facilitating agency. She urged the officer trainees to strive hard in the field so as to take the department to newer heights.
