    i. Make it mandatory for the Assessing Officer to represent before the CIT(A).

    ii. No Department Officer be posted to represent before the ITAT, rather Advocates and Retired members of the ITAT (whosoever are interested) should be engaged to represent before ITAT

    CBDT is be fooling the people to seek the cheap publicity. CBDT very well knows that its officers are responsible for the high pitched assessments which are resulting in the litigations. Even CBDT also is responsible because with a view to pleasing its bosses in the Finance Ministry it is directing to frame high pitched assessments.
