CBDT chairman Pramod Chandra Mody is convinced that faceless assessment is going to be the norm in future. Faceless assessment involves automated allotment of cases based on dynamic jurisdiction. The teams preparing the scrutiny notice and the one reviewing the draft assessment order are all independent and random. The I-T department had selected about 58,000 cases for faceless assessment in October last year of which about 8,000 cases have been disposed of without making any addition to taxpayers’ taxable income. However, review is required in about 300 cases on whether additions have been missed or undue additions have been made.
