In this regard we would like to state that ICAI has taken a great step for the benefit of it’s members but as far as virtual book is concerned Income tax act and Income tax rules are easily accessible on official website of Income tax India. Thus, only the ready reckoner would be of a bit help to members.
It would have been better if the institute would have brought some good discount on hard copies as that is what most professionals purchase and also disclosed which other publisher has offered to give discounts.
