Initiatives for reducing litigation

The significant steps taken by CBDT include issue of a circular revising the monetary limits for filing
of appeals by the Department with the objective of reducing litigation as a part of its initiatives to reduce grievances of the taxpayers including withdrawal of appeals filed by the Department in cases involving tax effect above the revised monetary limit from the High Courts in cases where, no question of law is involved, the issue is considered settled by the Department, or the appeal is no longer relevant in view of subsequent amendment. Besides this, the CBDT has issued a number of Circulars for withdrawing or not pressing of appeals on settled issues.
