NBR discusses ways with AG to ease crisis
Currently, around 24,000 cases are pending with the Supreme Court involving around Tk31,000 crore revenue as income tax, customs duty and value-added tax. The government wants to boost revenue collection resolving the crisis of huge number of pending cases. Attorney General Mahbubey Alam attended the meeting at the BCS Tax Academy in Dhaka as the chief gues. NBR Chairman Md Nojibur Rahman presided over the meeting. The meeting proposed a set of recommendations to the AG Office for faster settlement of income tax cases. These included allowing tax officials statement in the motion stage of cases, increasing the number of dedicated benches in the High Court, allocating a room with adequate logistic supports and manpower facilities on the court premises. Currently, there are six dedicated HC benches to settle revenue related cases along with cases involving the NBR revenue. According to the NBR sources, the number of pending cases has been increasing gradually due to lack of dedicated benches and shortage of manpower at the AG Office and the Registrar’s Office. People concerned said the analogous cases can be resolved through a single judgment while the cases involving big amounts of revenues can be included on the cause list for their early disposal. The NBR requested the AG Office to prepare a list of all similar cases and dispose them through a single judgment. It also asked for preparing a case list and bringing those to the cause list for early disposal of cases that involve over Tk1 crore revenue, and taking initiative to prioritise those cases for settlement where the chances of NBR is high to win the cases. It also requested the AG Office to upload revenue related verdicts on the Supreme Court website so that officials can get those easily when necessary.
