DRAFT Instruction on Internal Audit

1. Introduction

1.1 The Internal Audit system of the Income-tax Department was


revamped in 2007 by way of instruction No 3 of 2007. The role of
supervisory authorities was further specified by a supplementary Instruction
No. 15 of 2013. The working of the Internal Audit set up has been reviewed,
in the light of the findings of the C&AG Audit report, with a view to ensure
High Revenue cases are compulsorily audited which shall be identified
seamlessly by the Income-tax Business Application (ITBA). Therefore in
supersession of all existing instructions including Instructions No. 3 of 2007
and 15 of 2013, the following instruction is issued for compliance by all
concerned officers.
1.2 There shall be an Internal Audit set up, under the direct supervision
and control of the Principal Chief Commissioner of Income Tax. The Audit
structure shall be headed by a CIT(Audit) in each Pr CCIT region. In the
metro charges of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai, there shall be two
CsIT (Audit) each. There are thus 22 CsIT in the internal audit set-up in the
country. The CsIT(Audit) would have their headquarters at the same station
as that of the Pr CCIT. Each CIT(Audit) will have one Addl/JtCIT(Audit).
Each Addl/Jt CIT(Audit) will have one SAP (Special Audit Party) unit headed
by DCIT/ACIT (Audit) and as many IAPs (Internal Audit Party) headed by
ITO(Audit) as are mentioned in Cadre Restructuring Plan 2013. The Addl /
Jt CIT will supervise over the work of SAPs and IAPs working under him,
apart from audit of cases of the category assigned to him for audit.

2. Objective and Scope of Internal Audit

2.1 The three fold objectives were laid down by the Central Board of Direct
Taxes in the Year 1972 as under :
(i) To have a preventive and reforming effect in direction of avoiding
mistakes.
(ii) To play the corrective role by pointing out mistakes and ensuring
remedies without loss of time.
(iii) To improve quality of assessments so as to reduce the criticism of the
working of department by statutory audit and the Public Accounts
Committee.
2.2 In order to achieve the stated objectives, the main task of Internal
audit is :

a. to detect the mistake and errors which may occur during the
assessment work so that suitable/appropriate remedial action is
taken to retrieve the loss caused to the revenue;
b. to allow relief to the assessee in case of overcharge/over assessment.
c. to see whether or not prescribed Rules and Procedure laid down are
properly followed and to have reformative effect.
The ultimate aim of Internal Audit is to improve the quality of assessments
by reducing the errors and omissions which are subsequently detected by
Receipt Audit.

2.3 The scope of scrutiny by Internal Audit is now coterminous with that
of the Receipt Audit. However, the scope of checking by internal audit is
broadly to verify the following:

(i) The arithmetical accuracy;


(ii) Non application or wrong application of relevant legal provisions;
(iii) Orders passed in conformity with binding judicial pronouncements/
precedence and also Circulars & Instructions issued by the CBDT;

The Audit Officer should not raise vague and ambiguous objections. Cogent
reasons should be given in the Audit Memo by the Audit Officer while
pointing out the mistakes. There must be a mention of under assessment /
over assessment amount as well as tax effect in the Audit Memo.

3. Auditable cases, targets and norms

3.1 There shall be three audit units, the Addl / Jt CIT, the SAP and the
IAP. The minimum number of cases to be audited by each Addl/Jt CIT
(Audit), SAP and IAP per annum shall be as under:

Audit Unit Minimum Annual target


Addl/Jt. 150 Cases
CIT(Audit)
SAP 300 Cases
IAP 500 cases (Corporate charge) or
600 cases (Non Corporate charge) or
550 cases (mixed cases for computing the
achievement of the target, each non-
corporate case shall have a weightage of 1
and corporate case of 1.2)

The number of cases mentioned above is only the minimum number of cases
to be audited but each audit unit must try to manage the work in such a
way that as many auditable cases as possible are actually audited. The
CIT(Audit) shall be competent to change the target and norms for SAP/IAP
according to the exigency of the availability of manpower and workload,
subject to the approval of the Pr CCIT concerned. Moreover, the CIT(Audit)
may also ensure that the annual workload is evenly distributed in different
months.

3.2 The Internal Audit plan would be flexible and adjustable according to
the available workload. The cases for audit would be selected through ITBA
system based on the factors like assessed income/loss or refund granted or
claim of exemption / deduction or any other criteria as may be decided by
the ADG(Audit),CBDT with the approval of CBDT. The list of auditable cases
shall be generated on quarterly or monthly basis as may be required. Out of
the list of auditable cases so generated, the CIT(Audit) shall identify cases of
different category to be audited by Addl/Jt CIT or SAP or IAP every month
having regard to the norms applicable to them.

3.3 Till such time as the ITBA becomes fully operational, the CIT(Audit)
shall obtain the list of auditable cases in prescribed format from the CIT(CO)
by 5th of the month following every quarter and assign the auditable cases to
Addl/Jt CIT(Audit), SAP and IAPs as per the norms and targets. Once the
ITBA becomes fully operational, the CIT (Audit) shall generate such list of
auditable cases through ITBA.

4. Planning

4.1 The Audit Plan/calendar of compliance audit of Circles and Wards is


prepared in the office of C&AG for each financial year well in advance. The
CIT(Audit) shall obtain such Audit Plan/calendar from Local C&AG office
once the same is finalized. The CIT(Audit) shall prioritize the work of Internal
Audit of different Circles/Wards in accordance with such audit
Plan/calendar of C&AG so that internal audit plan is aligned to C&AG plan
to the extent possible. For this purpose, deployment of manpower available
may be re-arranged by the CIT(Audit) by deputing more than one IAP to
such Circles/ Wards which are going to be audited by Revenue Audit Party
in early part of the audit Plan/calendar.
4.2 The Internal Audit units may take up the work of audit of cases in the
following manner:
(i) In the first quarter of the financial year, the cases completed in last
year may be audited.
(ii) In the second quarter of the financial year, the cases completed in last
year as well in current year may be audited.
(iii) In the third and fourth quarters of the financial year, the cases
completed in current year may be audited.

5. Audit Procedure and classification

5.1 The Assessing Officer shall make the cases available for audit on
requisition from the Internal Audit unit. For the purpose of audit of search &
seizure assessments, the Appraisal reports shall also be shown to Audit
Unit, if so requisitioned.
5.2 The Audit unit shall complete the audit work expeditiously and
forward the objection, if any, in the form of Audit Memo in a format
prescribed at Annexure-A to this Instruction. The Audit Memo shall be sent
to the O/o PrCIT/CIT concerned with a copy each to the CIT(Audit), Addl
CIT(Audit), Range head and the Assessing officer.
5.3 In order to make it convenient to decide an appropriate course of
remedial action and facilitate its settlement, the audit objection shall be
categorized, depending upon the issue(s) raised by the audit unit concerned
in to
(i) Factual mistake, or
(ii) Legal question, or
(iii) Mixed issues
In case more than one issue is raised in an audit memo, each issue has to
be so categorized.
5.4 The audit Memo shall be issued after vetting by Addl CIT(Audit), if the
Revenue effect is more than Rs 1 Cr but less than Rs 10 Cr. In case Revenue
effect is more than Rs10 Cr, the objection shall be vetted by the CIT(Audit).
5.5 The Internal Audit Objections shall be classified, on the basis of
quantum of Revenue effect, into major or minor objection. Consistent with
C&AG parameters, presently the objections with the revenue effect of Rs
4,00,000 or more in respect of Corporation Tax and Income Tax and Rs
40,000 or more in respect of Other Taxes, shall be classified as Major audit
objection. The remaining IAP objections shall be classified as minor. All
pending objections as on the date of issue of this Instruction shall be
reclassified accordingly. In future whenever there is any change in the
classification of major and minor objections by C&AG the internal objections
shall also be re-classified accordingly.

6. Examination of Objections

The procedure for dealing with internal audit objection is outlined below.
6.1 Major Internal Audit Objection
6.1.1 The PCIT/CIT concerned shall examine major audit objection
and communicate to the CIT (Audit), within a month of receipt of
objection, as regards its acceptance or otherwise.
6.1.2 The CIT(Audit) shall consider the reply to the objections which
are not accepted by the PCIT/CIT and take following steps as may be
appropriate:
(i) If the view of the PCIT/CIT is acceptable, then the objection will be
settled as dropped and the decision communicated to the PCIT/CIT
concerned within a month of receipt of his reply.
(ii) If the view of the PCIT/CIT is not acceptable, the reasons for
disagreement would be communicated to the PCIT/CIT concerned
within a month of receipt of reply.
6.1.3 If the PCIT/CIT is still of the view that the objection is not
acceptable, he shall refer the matter, within a month of receipt of
disagreement, to the CCIT concerned for a final view in the matter and
the internal objection shall be dealt with accordingly.

6.2 Minor Internal Audit Objection


6.2.1 In respect of Minor audit objection, the Range head shall
communicate his/her acceptance or otherwise of the minor audit
objection to the Addl/JCIT(Audit) within one month of receipt of such
objection.
6.2.2 The Addl/JCIT(Audit) shall consider the reply to the objections
which are not accepted by the Range Head and take following steps as
may be appropriate:
(i) If the view of the Range Head is acceptable, the objection will be
settled as dropped and the decision is communicated to the Range
Head concerned within a month of receipt of his reply.
(ii) If the view of the Range Head is not acceptable, the reasons for
disagreement would be communicated to the Range Head concerned
within a month of receipt of reply.
6.2.3 If the Range Head is still of the view that the objection is not
acceptable, he shall refer the matter, within a month of receipt of
disagreement, to the jurisdictional PCIT/CIT for a final view in the
matter and the objection shall be dealt with accordingly.

7. Remedial Action:
7.1 In respect of an accepted internal audit objection, if the PCIT/CIT is of
the view that the relevant order under audit requires revision u/s 263 as
remedial action, he shall call for the relevant records and proceed
accordingly. In other cases, he shall communicate his decision not to invoke
section 263 to the Assessing Officer.
7.2 In cases where the PCIT/CIT has decided not to invoke his revision
jurisdiction u/s 263, the Assessing Officer shall examine an appropriate
course in respect of facts of each case and take a suitable action as per his
independent application of mind on the facts of each case.
7.3 The remedial action in cases of accepted objections must be initiated
within six months of receipt of such objections and concluded in a time
bound manner as per Income Tax Act, 1961.

8. Settlement of audit objections:

8.1 The internal audit objection which is accepted, shall be treated as


settled once the required remedial action has been completed in the case.
8.2 The major internal audit objection shall be settled by the CIT(Audit)
after considering the reply of the PCIT/CIT concerned. The reply shall be
initially examined by the Addl/Jt CIT (Audit) and shall be put up to the
CIT(Audit) with his comments.
8.3 The minor audit objection shall be settled by the Addl/JCIT(Audit)
after considering the reply of the Assessing Officer submitted through the

and of those who failed to take remedial action on time, causing irretrievable
loss of revenue.

10. Ledger Cards

10.1 It is observed that there is continuous rise in detection of major


irregularities by the C&AG from year to year. Proper maintenance of record

accountability and take reformative steps. This was being done by
maintaining Ledger Cards.

wherein the Audit Memo, all subsequent communications and its settlement
are to be recorded in the system. Moreover, each user shall have user an ID
and password and will be identified by his Employee number. A record of
mistakes committed by a particular officer shall thus be available in the
system irrespective of his current posting. Accordingly, formal system of
maintaining Ledger Cards shall be dispensed with.

10.3 However, until the time Audit Module in ITBA system is fully
functional, the ledger card will continue to be maintained in the offices of
the PCIT/CIT concerned as well as the CIT(Audit) in the format as in
existence prior to this Instruction coming into force.
