  • CBDT allows taxman to widen certain ‘limited scrutiny’ cases; orders no roving enquiries

    The CBDT has issued a fresh directive on ‘limited scrutiny’ assessment cases allowing the tax officials to widen the scope of such probes if they receive “credible” information of tax evasion by assessees. The policy-making body for the Income Tax Department, however, made it clear in its directive issued on Wednesday that such an enquiry will be specific to the allegation of tax theft that was flagged to the taxman by any other probe agency, in order to ensure that the assessing officer does not undertake a “fishing or roving” exercise resulting in harassment of the taxpayer.
