CBDT Hauls Up CIT(A)s For “Mounting Pendency” & “Tardy Disposal” Of Appeals

The CBDT has addressed a letter dated 25.10.2012 to the Chief Commissioners of Income-tax in which it has expressed “serious concern” over the “mounting pendency of appeals before CIT(A) and huge amounts disputed therein“. It has been pointed out that the average disposal per CIT(A) in FY 2011-12 was only 312 appeals.

The CBDT has directed the CCITs to review the work of CIT(A)’s functioning and bring the fact of shortfall in disposal and lack of quality etc to notice. It has been made clear that the disposal of appeals should be considered by the CCITs while recording the APAR of the CIT(A)s.

    The total number of CIT (Appeals) had been increased enormously in recent times and the IT department had reduced the quantum of scrutiny cases substantially. Yet the CIT (Appeals) did not live up to the expectations is a state of non-compliance by the cadre which promised the higher level of performance IF THE CADRE STRUCTURE IS IMPLEMENTED AND HIGHER POTENTIALITY IN SERVICE CONDITIONS WERE GIVEN.

    The Government and particularly Finance Minister should take this as breach of confidence reposed in the cadre and should take appropriate actions against the erring Commissioners whose performance was below expectations by issuing charge sheets etc.
