CBDT Takes Note Of Strictures Passed By Bombay High Court And Sets Up Collegium To Withdraw Frivolous Appeals

The CBDT has issued an Office Memorandum dated 10.12.2015 in which it is noted that in a recent decision of the Bombay High Court (DIT vs. Credit Agricole Indosuez), the manner in which the department files appeals was termed as being “casual and callous”. It is noted that there are other cases where the ITAT and the High Courts have adversely commented on the filing of frivolous appeals by the department. The CBDT has accordingly decided to extend the Collegium system to consider withdrawal of appeals filed in the High Court which are no longer considered prosecutable. The CBDT has specified the responsibilities of the CCIT in each region and also directed that a monthly report of the progress be submitted to it.

    First take action against all those Erring Casual Officers.

    • Bobjee Kurien says:

      Let the action start in right earnest against the officials who were caught by the CBI in the recent past to show that the CBDT is serious when they say zero tolerance in respect of corrupt officers.I agree with Mr Waghela on the line of action suggested.

    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before you call him a man?
    How many seas must a white dove sail
    Before she sleeps in the sand?
    Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
    Before they’re forever banned?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
    The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

    At long last the Board has realized its folly!!!!

    The answer was always blowing in the wind but no person to appreciate it
