AUDIT MANUAL 2019 BY INCOME TAX DEPARTMENT
AUDIT MANUAL 2019
I am happy that the committee under the chairmanship of Shri Rajnish Kumar, Pr. CCIT, Bengaluru constituted by CBDT submitted the revised Audit Manual incorporating all the changes in the new Manual. This Audit Manual is revised to elaborate the Instructions so that there is no ambiguity in understanding the procedural aspects of Audit. Also, the revised Audit Manual elaborates the process and work flow in ITBA Audit Module. The Audit Check Sheet has been made much more comprehensive. All members of the Committee have put their best efforts in drafting this Check Sheet, so that it covers various aspects of Income Tax assessments and Auditing. This Audit Check Sheet has been incorporated in the Audit Manual to avoid the repetitive errors during the assessment and the Audit Objections. This Check Sheet is a bundle of rich experience of senior officers of the Department and in words of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor of USA “Each of us brings to our job, whatever it is, our lifetime of experience and our values”
I appreciate the efforts made by the Committee for putting in hard work in updating the Audit Manual. I also congratulate the Editorial Team of Shri Krishna Mohan Prasad, Pr. DGIT (L & R), Shri Ravindra Singh Rawal, ADG(Audit & Inspections) and Shri Govind Singhal, Addl.DIT(Audit) for reviewing and updating the Manual in the present form.
I am sure that the manual will be of enormous help in improving the efforts of the Department in revenue mobilization.
