The implementation of General Anti Avoidance Rules (GAAR) has been deferred by one year. GAAR will now be applicable w.e.f. 1.4.2013.The Government had set-up a Committee under the Chairmanship of Director General of Income Tax (International Taxation) to frame draft guidelines in terms of Section 101 of Income Tax Act, 1961. Draft guidelines have since been finalized together with the forms. Some illustrations have also been provided to clarify the GAAR provisions.
