Whenever the taxes and returns are filed, not only the individuals have to make sure that the procedures are followed properly and the appropriate forms have been submitted, but also the department or the banking institutions from where the payments have been made are required to check everything thoroughly. When a person who is resident of India makes a money or fund transfer to a non-resident also called as remittances, it is the bank, which is required to check whether the individual has paid the liable taxes on such remittances or not.

Since it becomes nearly impossible to collect taxes on the remittances after they have been transferred or in later stages, therefore, the same must be verified by the financial or banking institutions at the time of making the remittances.
