CBDT concerned over frivolous appeals

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has cautioned its field officers against making frivolous appeals, stating that “litigation” must be pursued only in “deserving cases”.In an internal communiqué addressed to the field officers, the CBDT Member (Audit and Judiciary) SK Ray expressed dismay that necessary due diligence and caution were not being exercised while preferring appeals. This was despite several earlier instructions on the matter. Roy also highlighted that courts are taking a “stern” view as far as Income-Tax Department’s actions on litigation matters were concerned.Pursuing litigation “only in deserving cases” cannot be overemphasised more so given that the Department was facing acute shortage of officers at all levels, the CBDT said.
