NATIONAL JUDICIAL REFERENCE SYSTEM (NJRS)

The National Judicial Reference System (NJRS) is an initiative by the Income Tax Department to create a centralized repository of all appeals and important judgments in direct tax cases.

The National Judicial Reference System (NJRS) will help taxmen access all pending appeals and track their status. It will enable tax officers to find judgments by various courts in direct tax cases at the click of a button. It will also help the tax department access the entire litigation history of a taxpayer with the help of the permanent account number (PAN).

The project will enable officers to take timely action in appeal matters, aid decision making and improve litigation management in the tax department.  The database will make available all relevant judgements of the income tax appellate tribunal, High Courts and the Supreme Court along with department orders and circulars. It will also mention the PAN number of the assesse, the assessment year, the question of law that is being debated, the departments stand and other details about the case like the date of filing the appeal and the court in which its being heard for facilitating an easy search on the web-based system. The income tax (I-T) department is all set to launch a centralized repository of all appeals and important judgments in direct tax cases by the end of 2014. This will help the department in managing litigation in a better manner.
