Notes on Clauses:

Clause 72 of the Bill seeks to amend section 245R of the Income-tax Act relating to procedure on receipt of application.

It is proposed to insert sub-sections (8), (9), (10) and (11) so as to provide that on such date as may be appointed by the Central Government by notification in the Official Gazette, the provisions of the said section shall have effect as if for the words “Authority”, the words “Board for Advance Rulings” had been substituted and the provisions of that section shall apply mutatis mutandis to the Board for Advance Rulings as they apply to the Authority. Further, it provides that the Central Government may make a scheme, by notification in the Official Gazette, for the purposes of giving advance ruling under Chapter XIX-B by the Board for Advance Rulings, so as to impart greater efficiency, transparency and accountability by eliminating the interface between the Board for Advance Rulings and the applicant in the course of proceedings to the extent technologically feasible; optimising utilisation of the resources through economies of scale and functional specialisation; introducing a system with dynamic jurisdiction. It also provides that the Central Government may, for the purposes of giving effect to the said scheme, by notification in the Official Gazette, direct that any of the provisions of the Income-tax Act shall not apply or shall apply with such exceptions, modifications and adaptations as may be specified in the notification. However, no direction shall be issued after 31st March, 2023. Every notification so issued shall, as soon as may be after the notification is issued, be laid before each House of Parliament.

These amendments will take effect from 1st April, 2021.
