Kadiyala Chandrayya Vs. State of Andhra

Court : Andhra Pradesh

Decided on : Nov-16-1956

Reported in : [1957]8STC33(AP)

k. subba rao, c.j. 1. this is a revision against the order of the andhra sales tax appellate tribunal confirming that of the deputy commissioner of commercial taxes.2. the petitioner is the proprietor of a non-vegetarian meals hotel called sri taj mahal hotel, eluru. he was assessed for 1953-54 on a turnover of rs. 27, 000 on the best of judgment in the absence of a return from him. the tribunal estimated the turnover at 4 times the cost of the mutton purchased. the learned counsel for the petitioner contended that the said multiple is arbitrary and is not supported by any reasonable basis. the tribunal came to the conclusion, on the material placed before them, that, from 1st april, 1953, to 14th june, 1953, 2050 seers of mutton were purchased for rs. 3072 working out an average roughly of 30 seers per day at rs. 1-8-0 per seer. but, as there was no evidence of other purchases such as rice, vegetables, dhall, ghee, curd etc., which would be necessary to make a complete meal costing rs. 1-4-0, the tribunal estimated that four times the cost of the mutton purchased would represent the average sale proceeds per day, i.e., rs. 180. on that footing, the net turnover for five months was fixed at rs. 27, 000. the assessment was, therefore, made on the relevant material placed before the tribunal and we cannot say that it was mere guess work or was arbitrary.3. the learned counsel then raised for the first time before us, the contention that the proviso to section 3(1)(b) offends .....

Reported in : 1957CriLJ919

chandra reddy, j.1. i would like to add a few words regarding the value to be attached to the evidence of eye-witnesses. in support of the proposition that no weight should be attached to the testimony of child-witnesses mr. basi reddy, counsel for the appellant cited to us, two rulings one of lahore high court in abbas v. emperor air 1933 lah 667(a) and of the judicial committee of the privy council in mohamad sugal v. king 1946 mad. w.n. 101 : (air 1946 po 3)(b). in the first of the two cases, it was observed by the learned judges that, in considering the evidence of child-witnesses, the observations (which will be referred to immediately) should not be lost sight of although each would depend upon its particular facts and circumstances. the passage which was the basis of these observations of the learned judges is extracted from the outlines of criminal law page 336 by dr. kenny, downing professor of the laws of england, cambridge university.children are a most untrustworthy class of witnesses, for, when of a tender age, as our common experience teaches us, they often mistake dreams for reality, repeat glibly as of their own knowledge what they have heard from others, and are greatly influenced by fear of punishment by hope of reward, and by desire of notoriety.2. the learned judges do not say that it is an inflexible rule that in every case of a child witness, the evidence should be disregarded. it is specifically stated by them that it depends upon the facts of each case .....
