The ITAT was invited to make a presentation on its successful practices and it was represented at the said meeting inter alia by the Hon’ble President Shri. Vimal Gandhi. Shri. Gandhi made a presentation on successful practices in the ITAT and the same was well received by the distinguished audience.

The participants in the meeting showed keen interest in the functioning of the ITAT and the ways and means in which this successful experiment can be replicated in other developing countries and transitional economies. The ITAT was described as the ‘greatest tax tribunal’ in the world by the UN officials and rich compliments were paid to its independence and competence.

A copy of the paper presented on behalf of the ITAT at the said meeting will be published shortly.
