CBDT: Gupta tipped as Member, Administration?

By IndianMandarins 10 Jan 2020

If some top sources are to be Satish Kumar Gupta (IRS IT:1984) may be picked up for the post of Member, Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT); a post (Member, Administration) which fell vacant after the retirement of Ms Neena Kumar (IRS IT:1982). Presently, Gupta is Principal Chief Commissioner Income Tax (PCCIT), Mumbai Region.

The post, vacant vice Mrs Neena Kumar, was advertised in the second week of November 2019. Interestingly, it is believed CBDT wanted to widen the net for the appointment of members by inviting applications from relatively younger officers in rank of Principal Commissioner and above.

Presently, the posts of Member, Administration and Member Investigation are lying vacant but the later is not on offer as the post appears to have been attached to Chairman, CBDT for a couple of years. Gopal Mukherjee was the last Member (Investigation) who retired in January 2018.

CBDT: Has appointment rules for Board level positions changed?

By IndianMandarins 08 Nov 2019

If some top sources are to be believed, the appointment rules for board level positions in the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has been rehashed making a big departure from the earlier position.

Contrary to the existing rule, the Board-level posts may not be advertised now. Under the new provisions the Department of Revenue will suo motto pick up five officers from the list officers empanelled to hold Apex level posts (26 Apex posts under CBDT). The shortlisted candidates will be interviewed for the post of Member, CBDT. Following the interview, service records and experience, names will be selected and will be sent to the ACC for clearance.

Under the new provisions posts of member will not be advertised and hence officers would not come to know about the vacancy of the post. Reportedly, as per the new rule names will straight away be picked by the Department of Revenue in consultation with Chairman CBDT for interview.

As per the existing rules, any candidate eligible to hold HAG Plus post used to apply for the Board-level posts. But as per rehashed rules only Principal Chief Commissioner (PCCIT) rank officers would be considered and shortlisted for interview. Those in the know of the affairs say that many PCCIT rank officers prefer to serve in the field as the chief of regions rather becoming part of the Board. Probably, this is also a reason selection process /rules were rehashed.

Road to success goes through....?

Some recent developments have made several senior IRS (IT) officers apprehensive about their career prospects. The way Akhilesh Ranjan (member, CBDT) opted for VRS following re-appointment of P C Mody as CBDT Chairman, confidence of several senior most IRS officers seems to have shaken up. But officers belonging to junior batches take it sportingly. Out of humor, junior IRS officers are often heard saying ‘if you have ever served in Gujarat region you have chances but if you didn’t you should not lose hope’.
