    In a letter the department said, except for search-related assessments, proceedings in other pending scrutiny assessment cases shall be conducted only through the 'E-proceeding' functionality in ITBA/e-filing".

    In case the assesse refuse to get his assessment done via e-proceeding facility then his case can be kept on hold for the time being.

    The relaxation is also being extended to stations that have lower bandwidth limit for communication via net and the given facility is only till March 31, 2018.

    Also, the notices shall be issued online to the assesse's e-filing account. And such communication has to have digital signatures of assessing officers (AOs).

    The move will not only curb corruption and harassment faced by taxpayers but also promotes digital drive in India.
