Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has issued Notification No. 55/2020 dated 28th July, 2020 to substitute Rule 12CB of the Income Tax Rules, 1961 having the statement giving details of the nature of the income paid or credited during the previous year and such other relevant details by an investment fund to its unit holder and Principal Commissioner or the Commissioner of Income-tax, as the case may be.

Key points of the amendments are:
