A careful and objective analysis is made of the available experimental observations which claim evidence for the existence of a shoulder in the spectrum of the diffuse cosmic gamma rays in the energy range of 1-40 MeV. In this, special cognisance is taken of the experimental data and theoretical calculations of the Bombay Group. These considerations cast serious doubts on the reliability of the high flux values obtained by many experimenters in this energy region emphasizing thereby the need for great caution in interpreting the shoulder as due to cosmological effects with far reaching implications.
