All Principal Chief Commissioners of Income-tax DGIT (Int. Tax)
DGIT (Exemption), DGIT(Inv.), DGIT(I&CI),
Sub.: Jurisdiction orders and implementation of Cadre restructuring exercise of the Income-tax Department – reg.
I am directed to refer to the Board’s letters of even number dated 5.6.2014 and 6.6.2014 regarding information to be sent while forwarding draft jurisdiction orders to the ITA Division as a consequence of proposed restructuring. It was specifically requested that the requisite information may be e-mailed besides sending by post.
2. However, it is observed that certain officers are visiting CBDT personally only for submitting the proposals to the Board and that too without any prior intimation. The undersigned is directed to convey that such visits not only result in wastage of time of officers but also lead to undesirable expenditure incurred on tour. It is reiterated that the proposals and the requisite information may strictly be sent by post and the soft copy of the same may also be sent by e-mail. At present, there is no need for personal visits. Wherever any such need is felt the nodal officer would be so informed. Any clarification, if desired, could be discussed telephonically by the nodal officer or his/her team with the officers mentioned in CBDT’s letter dated 5.6.2014.
Under Secretary to the Government of India
