Clause 28 of the Bill seeks to amend section 245C of the Income-tax Act relating to application for settlement of cases.

The existing provisions contained in the proviso to sub-section (1) of the aforesaid section provide that, no application shall be made before the Settlement Commission unless the proceedings under section 153A or under section 153C have been initiated against the applicant and the additional amount of income-tax payable on the income disclosed in the application exceeds fifty lakh rupees and in other cases if the additional amount of income-tax payable on the income disclosed in the application exceeds ten lakh rupees.

It is proposed to insert a new clause (ia) in the proviso to sub-section (1) of the aforesaid section. It provides that no application shall be made unless, in a case where the applicant is related to the person referred to in clause (i) who has filed an application [referred as "specified person"] ; and the proceedings for assessment or reassessment for any of the assessment years referred to in clause (b) of sub-section (1) of section 153A or clause (b) of sub-section (1) of section 153B in case of the applicant, being a person referred to in section 153A or section 153C, have been initiated, the additional amount of income-tax payable on the income disclosed in the application exceeds ten lakh rupees.

It is further proposed to insert an Explanation after the said proviso defining the expressions "applicant in relation to the specified person" and "substantial interest" for the purposes of the new clause (ia).

This amendment will take effect from 1st June, 2011.
