Faced with duplication of work and wastage of resources in dealing with litigation matters, the finance ministry has asked the Central Board of Excise and Customs to file reports to Directorate of Legal Affairs (DLA) on monthly basis only. Besides, it has also instructed that henceforth only zonal chief commissioners would file reports as against the earlier practice where field formations used to send the files.
“It has been decided to call for a comprehensive monthly report as part of the Monthly Technical Report (MTR) being sent by the field formations in matters concerning Legal and Judicial Sections of the board as well as the Directorate of Legal Affairs (DLA),” the Revenue Department said in a circular.
It said the step has been initiated to do away with duplication of reports and curb wastage of time and resources.
