    Income Tax Settlement Commission is a premier Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) body in India. The Wanchoo Committee under the Chairmanship of Justice K.N. Wanchoo had conceived of the Settlement Commission as a mechanism to allow a one-time tax evader or an unintending defaulter to make clean breast of his affairs. The settlement mechanism allows taxpayers to disclose additional Income before it over and above what has been already disclosed before the Income tax Department. An assessee may make an application to Settlement Commission at any stage of the case.  The Commission is required to pass the Settlement order within 18 months of filling of the application. It has wide power of granting immunity from Penalty and prosecution, which are major sources of litigation. The orders passed by the Commission are final and conclusive.
