The Centre for Advanced Training in Taxation laws is established at Maharashtra National Law University, Mumbai with the objective to advance Studies and Research in the area of Taxation. Dr Karuna Akshay Malviya, BLS, LL.M, NET (SRF), H.D., DCL, CCP, is Honorary Director of the Centre. The Centre has the vision to foster and promote a thorough understanding of the Indian Tax System, tax policies and laws and their implication for domestic and International Business Practices. Taxes in India are levied by the State and Central Government. While tax law might sound to be something very generic, it is indeed one of those aspects of the Indian Legal Structure that tend to affect every Indian citizen on a daily basis. Although many believe that Tax law demands great quantitative skills, it rather wants the student's focus on ethics, passions for the subject and incomparable intellectual capacity to keep up with the tax reforms. The Centre will be offering P.G. Diploma courses, Certificate Courses, Practical Training sessions, Workshops, Webinars and Interactive sessions in comings days. The Centre will help students widen their knowledge on taxation laws with practical orientation towards the subject.
Mission : The centre aims in developing it as a centre of advance studies and research in the area of taxation laws. This centre will provide a platform to students for doing research work in the area of taxation and disseminate the outcome and knowledge for the benefit of the society. It will keep and maintain the updated information on taxation matters for research activities. It will have collaboration with certain tax law firms and organizations for providing professional training to our students as well as giving them an opportunity of working with their firms or organizations as a trainee. The centre has proposed for starting of a certificate course on taxation law of a short duration for different stake holders.
