We have immense pleasure to announce the commencement of the website for  Thiruvananthapuram Central Excise, Customs and Service Tax Commissionerate covering South Kerala, which was carved out of the erstwhile Cochin Central Excise Commissionerate on 01/11/2002.
This is a great leap towards realizing the dream of e-governance. Definitely any technological change will alter the way the people live their lives. The use of Internet revolutionized the way citizens participate in the governance of the nation. Each and every citizen can get connected to the public departments and their personnel through the website. This is our small but meaningful step to facilitate the assessees and the citizen who is concerned about the nation and its welfare. This is more relevant after the introduction of the Right to Information Act.
Though the government of India has its own site and Finance Ministry and CBEC too have their separate sites our website would be useful to the officers, assessees and general public under the jurisdiction of this Commissionerate. I hope that the site would help in correct collection and payment of Central Excise, Customs and Service Tax revenue in an easier and faster manner. I also hope that we would be able to achieve our mission in the shortest possible time.
