Notes on Clauses:

Clause 77 of the Bill seeks to insert a new section 245W to the Income-tax Act relating to Appeal.

It is proposed to insert a new section 245W so as to provide that the applicant may, if he is aggrieved by any ruling pronounced or order passed by the Board for Advance Rulings; or the Assessing Officer, on the directions of the Principal Commissioner or Commissioner, appeal to the High Court within sixty days from the date of the communication of such ruling or order, in such form and manner as may be provided by rules. However, where the High Court is satisfied, on an application made by the appellant in this behalf, that the appellant was prevented by sufficient cause from presenting the appeal within the period specified in sub-section (1), it may grant a further period of thirty days for filing such appeal. It is also proposed that the Central Government may make a scheme, by notification in the Official Gazette, for the purposes of preferring appeal to the High Court by the Assessing Officer, so as to impart greater efficiency, transparency and accountability by optimising utilisation of the resources through economies of scale and functional specialisation; introducing a team-based mechanism with dynamic jurisdiction.

It is also proposed 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.

This amendment will take effect from 1st April, 2021.
