Consequently, the constitution of the Committees for examining the proposals for write-off of irrecoverable arrears and recommending deserving cases to the authority competent to order such write-off, also requires modification.  Hence, para 4 & 5 of the Circular No. 946/07/2011 be substituted by the following:-
