itat e-dwar is an e-filing portal of the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT). It was launched recently by Union Minister for Law and Justice, Communications and Electronics and IT Ravi Shankar Prasad. This portal improves the transparency and accountability in the functioning of ITAT and saves paper and operational cost. It also enables speedy disposal of cases due to the streamlining of the case fixation.
ITAT, which was set up in 1941, is India’s second appellate authority under the direct taxes and the first independent forum in the appellate hierarchy. It comes under the aegis of the Department of Legal Affairs in the Ministry of Law and Justice, outside the purview of the Finance Ministry.
