    All these comments remind me a news item published in a paper long time back that the top brass in the ITAT itself was under the scanner by the CBI after the CA and the Member of Calcutta ITAT were caught red handed. I also remember that the drafts of ITAT’s orders made in floppies/CDs and payment for services rendered are both handed over to the presiding member. And this is the practice too, accepted all over in the country in all benches. I also know that the two members in a particular bench in the south were always fighting-one was corrupt and the other reasonably honest. And that dishonest member used to openly declare that he paid huge amount for becoming member so he could do anything, so much so that he went against an earlier decision of the same bench in a similiar case of the same group only because of non-payment of his dues. The same member also told one appellant, already bankrupt, to sell his only house to pay his dues and otherwise to be prepared to lose the case. The poor man had no money, the house was mortgaged. So he lost and his representative kept on losing cases after that. The son in law of restaurant owners also become members, while not much work is there. No vehicles, no telephones, no stenos. Of course stenos are not necessary as orders are typed either by a colluding DR or a cooperative CA/Adv. But the mystery is the cause of this latest ad calling for applications. What is the going rate now?
    The CVC and the CBI will definitely know.

  5. TD Sharma says:

    This is a very misleading news, almost verging on disinformation. There is so much corruption in this 65 years old organisation, and so meagre workload due to the all-pervading competiotion to make money, that it has become public knowledge as to how memberships are available. Recently, an order of transfer of a VP of one Bench to another Bench has had to be rescinded due to CBI’s objections to that VP’s relocation. It is not known as to what is the Honorable President’s reaction. In another case, one member has been transferred from one Bench to another at his own request. So the Honorable President passed his transfer order with the rider that the member will not be entitled to any TA/DA, but at the same time the Honorable President also ordered that very member to go on “Camp” to the new station so that the rider as said (no TA/DA) becomes totally irrelevant. Is the CBI looking into this also along with the Kolkata bribe episode? And, in this view of the affairs of the ITAT, is there really any need for employing new members, unless of course there is any ulterior pecuniary motive ?
    I think, the Law Minister and the Parliament, as well as the CVC, should consider these aspects.

  6. N.Dey says:

    This is again ludicrous indeed,since what is widely believed is that, there is hardly any workload even for the existing members on roll. There are hardly enough number of cars, office space, supporting staff, etc.
    Is there really any need for more members?

    ANY AGE RESTRICTION. EXPERIENCE OF LAGE SCALE PUBLIC LTD CO WITH FICWA AND MBA QUALIICATION WILL GIVE ANY WEIGHTAGE
