Lawyers, like other professionals, are now free to advertise their services on the Internet as the Bar Council of India today informed the Supreme Court that it has relaxed its rules on the issue in view of the changing global scenario.

It has been decided that all CCsIT (CCA) should redeploy officers and staff to clear the backlog in high pendency charges keeping in view the overall work load including pendency of scrutiny cases. Concerned CCsIT may take recourse to outsourcing of data entry as per standing instructions of the Board / Directorate of Systems on the subject. For this purpose, necessary funds would be placed at the disposal of the CCIT (CCA) for outsourcing of data entry. CCsIT(CCA) should send proposals to the Directorate of Income-tax (Systems) for outsourcing of data entry.
