AG asks Income - Tax Department for 'zero delay' in filing appeals
April, 07th 2011

Concerned over the rise in instances of delay in filing appeals by the Income Tax Department, Attorney General (AG) of India Goolam Vahanvati asked the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) to move towards a zero delay regime.

Following this, CBDT today put out a special and detailed 10-point mannual, which includes several annexures to ensure a speedy disposal of litigations. CBDT is the administrative authority of the I-T department.

The AGs advice comes after the Supreme Court recently expressed its severe concerns over the departments inordinate delays in filing special leave petitions (SLPs) in court.

According to official data, cases involving tax demand of about Rs 7,635 crore are pending in the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal, around Rs 3,849 crore is locked up in cases with high courts, while disputed matters over tax liability of about Rs 550 crore are lying with the apex court.

In January, Finance Minister Pranab Mukharjee had said immediate action would be taken against lax income-tax officials and chief commissioners would now monitor processing of judicial cases in both the apex and high courts. Also, he had described the department as governments biggest litigant with over Rs 12,000 crore tax demands locked up in disputes.

Broadly, the manual specifies strict criteria with regard to timelines for processing of proposals for filing SLPs, responsibility to ensure that proposals are processed on time, institutional mechanism for processing proposals for appeals/SLPs to the Supreme Court, processing of proposals for appeal/SLP on receipt of the order of the high court, SLP filed by the assessee, processing of SLP proposals in the Directorate of L&R and compliance of directions of SC.

Also, a check will be on the quality of SLP proposals, assistance to law officers/appearing counsels and monitoring compliance of this instruction.
