C I T JODHPUR v M/S MANGILAL RAMESHWAR LAL - ITA Case No. 67 of 2004  RD-RJ 1120 (7 July 2005)
D.B.INCOME TAX APPEAL No. 67/2004
HON'BLE MR RAJESH BALIA, J.
HON'BLE MR R.S. CHAUHAN, J.
Mr. Sangeet Lodha for the appellant.
Mr. Anjay Kothari for the respondents.
This appeal against the order of the
Tribunal dated 19.3.2004 was admitted by this
Court on 17.12.2004 and two substantial questions of law were framed, which requires consideration in this appeal. Service was effected on the respondent-assessee. The cross-objection has been preferred by the respondent-assessee under
Section 260(A)(7) read with O.41 R.22 CPC for raising substantial question of law to the extent the Tribunal had decided the question of Block
Assistant being barred by limitation against the assessee, though it has been decided on merits in favour of the assessee.
The cross-objection has been filed after the expiry of limitation on the date of the service of the notice of the appeal, hence it is also accompanied under Section 5 of the
Limitation Act for condoning the delay.
Having heard learned counsel for the parties, we are satisfied that the assessee was prevented by sufficient cause in filing the cross-objection within limitation.
Consequently, the application under
Section 5 of the Limitation Act is allowed and the cross-objection is treated within limitation.
Considering the cross-objection, we are of the opinion that following substantial question of law also arises from the order of the
Tribunal, which requires consideration in the appeal/cross-objection:
" Whether the ITAT has misconstrued the provisions of Section 158 BE providing for limitation for completion of block assessment and has grossly erred in rejecting the ground of limitation raised by the respondent-assessee before the ITAT."
We are informed that the cross- objections are separately registered. Since sub- section (7) of Section 260(A) extend the provisions relating to the appeal contained in the Civil Procedure Code, to this proceedings, the cross-objection filed in Tax Appeals be also separately registered and numbered accordingly.
