Banarsai Lal Prajapati v. State Of U.P. & Others - WRIT TAX No. - 1667 of 2007  RD-AH 18625 (5 December 2007)
HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE AT ALLAHABAD
Writ Petition (Tax) No. 1667 of 2007
Hon'ble Sushil Harkauli, J.
Hon'ble Rakesh Sharma, J.
The petitioner has admittedly not deposited tax after 1998. We do not think that the petitioner has any right to require the respondents to give statement of account in such a situation.
For seeking relief from the equitable jurisdiction of this Court, the petitioner must do equity and come with clean hands by depositing at least the admitted tax.
With the aforesaid observations, the writ petition is accordingly dismissed.
However, if the admitted tax is deposited up to date that is for the past 9 years during which the petitioner has not paid a single penny, the petitioner will be at liberty to file a fresh writ petition.
