Processing of returns of assessment year 2007-2008 – Steps to clear the backlog
Instruction No. 6/2008 dated 18-6-2008
Kindly refer to above. The issue of processing of pending returns has been discussed by the Board and following decisions have been taken in order to clear the backlog :—
(i) It has been decided that all CCsIT (CCA) should redeploy officers and staff to clear the backlog in high pendency charges keeping in view the overall work load including pendency of scrutiny cases. Concerned CCsIT may take recourse to outsourcing of data entry as per standing instructions of the Board / Directorate of Systems on the subject. For this purpose, necessary funds would be placed at the disposal of the CCIT (CCA) for outsourcing of data entry. CCsIT(CCA) should send proposals to the Directorate of Income-tax (Systems) for outsourcing of data entry.
