NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday cautioned tax-evaders to comply with the rules by September 30 or be prepared to face the music.

If people come to grief on account of non-compliance after September 30, the government cannot help,” the PM said, adding it was a chance for people to comply with the laws.
