The compilation should be made in the format enclosed as Annexure to this letter.

(a)   The compilation should not include the cases of PSU, Government organisations and the cases with a history of addition/disallowances being consistently made and contested in appeals in the past years. In such cases only those issues should be reported which have been detected for the first time during the year.
(b)   Before reporting such cases in compilation, due care must be taken that the issues have been properly thrashed and it is not a case where the Assessing Officer has resorted to summary additions, routine disallowances or best judgment assessment without any worth while independent inquiry. Reporting of such cases would be viewed adversely.

(d)   The Central Charges are requested to incorporate those cases where the Assessing Officer, while framing assessments in search and seizure cases, have been able to establish tax evasion and made independent detailed investigation traversing beyond the indicated facts in Appraisal report of the investigation unit. The assessments in any other cases which reflect the work done by the Assessing Officers on the basis of their independent investigations can also be included if it amounts to quality work.
