IN THE HIGH COURT OF DELHI AT NEW DELHI
COMMISSIONER OF INCOME TAX DELHI
JACKSON ENGINEERS LTD.
O R D E R 18. 10.2012
Mr.K.P.Chowdary, Member, AandJ and Mr.Amitabh Misra, Chief Commissioner-III, are present in the court. It is stated by them that insofar as the revamping the system and giving better assistance to the court is concerned, all necessary action as they would take has been taken. We would thus naturally expect that now there would no lack of proper assistance to the court.
Insofar as the fresh panel is concerned, it is stated that the matter is pending consideration of the Law Ministry and as and when the approved list is received, it will come into force.
Learned Member has explained that insofar as the issue of payment of fee to the counsel is concerned, the admitted fee is being paid and the arrears towards the admitted fee are expected to be cleared in the next two months. However, there appears to be some dispute of parameters which the Member says will be sorted out with the counsels themselves. Learned Member also states that the frequent changes in the Board occur qua the subject matter being dealt with by the Member on account of the tenure of the Members themselves being quite short running not more than about a year within which time there is also shifting of the designation of the work. This is an aspect to be dealt with by the Department itself.
The Member states that a quietus may be given to the issue as he has assured this court that there would be no laxity in the assistance rendered to the court in future. The matter already stands disposed of and hence need not be listed.
