Chief Commissioners of Income Tax



            You may kindly refer to the circular No. 402/88/17-A/2006-CIT (co &s) dated 17.01.2008 issued by CBDT regarding providing 15 mobile Telephones to the Income Tax officials working in the ranges.  I am directed to state that the mobile phone reimbursement facility should be provided first to  Non-Gazetted staff. Only after all such categories have been provided can the balance mobile phones be given to Income Tax officers and above in that order. Sanction would specifically cover only these categories actually in position. 


            The question of extending the mobile facility to officials deployed for operational purpose is under the active consideration of the Board  as per the direction of the Secretary (Revenue) and the same would be decided after the proposed meeting of the Addl. Commissioners of Income Tax (Hqrs) scheduled to be held on 17th and 18th Sept. 2009.


            Other conditions of limitations of payment will remain the same.


            This issues with the approval of Chairman, CBDT




 Yours faithfully,
