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.
