v) Mr Navneet Manohar, Director(FT&TR)-III, CBDT

The Working Group shall be responsible to coordinate with various Divisions/Directorates of Board as well as field formation to formulate India’s position for various aspects related to taxation of migrating HNWIs. The Working Group shall also make recommendations for policy decision in respect of tax risks of the migrating HNWI population.
