I-T Dept to fast-track tax-related cases

To expedite over 2.50 lakh cases pending for adjudication, the income tax department is getting tough. It has asked its officials to regularly submit data of number of appeals disposed of against the target set for the particular period.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has asked the officials to provide such data every month to begin with.

The department has also asked income tax commissioners to upload the data of all the appeals pending before them as on February 29, 2016, on its data collection portal by October 21.

"The said data is required on a monthly basis by the board to review the performance of each CIT (A) (Commissioner of Income-tax-Appeals) in-charge vis-a-vis targets. It is hence requested that the said data may be sent to the statistics (R&S) wing by all the CITs (A) concerned," CBDT said.

"The said campaign would be systems-driven. Hence... it may be ensured that data of all the appeals pending before CIT (A) as on February 29, 2016, is uploaded on ITBA module for CIT (A) latest by October 21," it said. According to government data, over 73,000 appeals with tax of above Rs 10 lakh and 1.86 lakh below Rs 10 lakh are pending before CITs.
