In response to these grievances, employees across the country initiated protests, expressing their dissatisfaction towards the proposed changes. The employees therefore participated in the strike on Friday with the aim for their demands to be acknowledged. The protest held in Pune saw a significant turnout, with employees gathering in front of the Chief Commissioner of Income Tax’s office for three consecutive days.
