There is an overlapping of jurisdiction of dedicated bench for international taxation cases, i.e. I bench, and dedicated benches for transfer pricing cases, i.e. J and K benches, in as much as some appeals involve transfer pricing as also international taxation issues. In this view of the matter, and with a view to evenly allocate workload in I, J and K benches, it is decided that all such cases, involving international taxation issues as also transfer pricing issues, will be heard by I bench.

This issues with the approval of Hon’ble President, ITAT

Vice President

In connection with the above, it is clarified that the appeals already scheduled for hearing before J and k benches in the current month may be heard by the respective benches, and, as such, the hearing of such appeals is not required to be adjourned only because these appeals also involve international taxation issues.
