Latest about Direct Taxes Code Bill in India, initially talked about in 2010

Direct Taxes Code (DTC) Bill

I first heard about Direct Taxes Code (DTC) bill in Mid 2010. This would be a major change in India's tax policy since Income Tax Act,1961. Initial proposals aimed at doing away with various tax exemptions like what people get on ULIP s, Public Provident Fund(PPF), Fixed deposits etc and instead lowering tax rates and simplifying tax payment.
Then, it was planned to be applicable from 2012 April. However, this has been postponed. Yet in yesterday;s budget, Indian finance minister P.Chidambaram said that this bill would be tabled in Parliament in current budget session.
As per Chidambram, the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance has submitted its report on the Bill and the government attaches great weight to its recommendations.
It needs to be soon whether government allies and opposition parties, mainly BJP supports this motion or not.
