RBI was conceptualized as per the guidelines, working style and outlook presented by Dr. B. R. Ambedkar in his book titled “The Problem of the Rupee – Its origin and its solution” and presented to the Hilton Young Commission. The bank was set up based on the recommendations of the 1926 Royal Commission on Indian Currency and Finance, also known as the Hilton–Young Commission.
. The income tax act was enacted in 1961, and it came into effect from April 1, 1962.The financial year (FY) runs from April to March the reason behind this is India have two major crop seasons: Kharif and Rabi (or Rabbi). The Kharif season starts in April, and Rabi season get ripe in March. Most of their taxes during British days were being paid in the form of crops. So, the government prepared its annual budget keeping these crop patterns in mind. Therefore, the financial year was from 1st April, and ends on 31st March. Even after independence, we are following the same fiscal year.
