You are requested to kindly provide your valuable feedback on CASS parameters to make the process more effective, considering, interalia, the following factors:

(i) The parameters of selection of earlier CASS runs, which have not yielded revenue even after in-depth scrutiny, which may be considered for exclusion in future CASS run.

(ii) The new parameters of selection, which are to be considered for inclusion in future CASS run, based on the additions made or the revenue potential. with reference to the specific data fields available in AST, TDS, OLTAS, GIB, AIR modules etc.

(iii) Cases of specific Industry (based on business code/nature of business) and economy trends of F.Y. 2015-16 (A.Y. 2016-17), which need to be considered for selection.

(iv) Particular parameters of selection of earlier CASS runs, which led to higher concentration or shortage in selection with particular AOs or particular charge, may be indicated with statistics.
