MESSERS JAYARAM TRADERS v. INTELLIGENCE OFFICER (IB) - ST Rev No. 95 of 2003  RD-KL 13387 (18 July 2007)
b) Whether the Appellate Tribunal did not commit an error of law in holding that the assessment has been completed under Sec.17 of the Act when the entire assessment is based on the allegation that the Transit Passes issued from the Check Post at the point of entry were not surrendered at the Azhiyur Chungam Check Post?
c) Whether the Appellate Tribunal was correct in holding that the goods have been disposed of in the State of Kerala by the Appellants on the ground that the records at the Azhiyur Chungam Check Post did not show that the goods have gone out of the State for the sole reason that the Petitioners did not prove the mode of transport, notwithstanding the plea of the Petitioners that the goods were delivered at their business place by the Sellers? S.T.REV. NO.171 OF 2003
d) Whether the Appellate Tribunal did not commit an error in law in holding that the issue of C Forms did not conclusively prove that the goods were received in Mahe, especially in view of the fact that the Petitioners have disposed of the goods in Mahe and paid tax due thereon under the Local Act?
e) Whether the Appellate Tribunal was not unduly influenced by observations of the First Respondent that the total quantity of RKG Ghee purchased by dealers in Mahe was disproportionate to the needs of the people in Mahe, especially in view of the identical statistics available with respect to petrol, liquor and other goods?
f) Whether the Appellate Tribunal did not commit an error of law in not considering the logic behind the introduction of Sec.30B(3) of the Act which was brought in only to cover situations of the one involved in the matter?"
