The Supreme Court today granted three weeks to the Centre to fill up the vacancies of presidents and vice presidents in different benches of the Income Tax Appellate Tribunals (ITAT) across the country.

A bench of Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud also asked Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar to file a compliance affidavit before court before the next date of hearing.

The court passed the directions after the Centre informed the bench that the process of filling up the vacancies in ITAT was at an advanced stage and sought three weeks to do the needful.

“The Solicitor General states that the process of finalising the selection of presiding officer in ITAT is in advanced stage and seeks three weeks time for making the final appointments,” the Bench said.
