Commissioner of Income-tax Vs. Kailasho Devi Burman and ors.

Court : Kolkata

Decided on : Jul-14-1977

Reported in : [1978]115ITR732(Cal)

ramendra mohan datta, j. 1. i think the tribunal has totally failed to draw the irresistible inference from the facts placed before it. therewas no scope for vacillation or giving the benefit of doubt to the assessee. the only conclusion that could be reached from the admitted facts was that the notice of demand was duly and properly served on the assessee. the tribunal definitely misdirected itself and committed an error on the face of the record by taking the statement of the counsel as evidence before it. the statement of the counsel was to the effect that there was no such person by the name of phool singh who had authority to receive any such notice on behalf of the assessee. that could not have been relied on by the tribunal as evidence before it. if that was the position then the assessee should have come forward to deny such service on cogent evidence and until that was done the tribunal would have the only option to proceed on the basis of the acknowledgment receipt which showed that the demand notice was duly served on the assessee. if the tribunal had done so it would have reached the inevitable and inescapable conclusion that the demand notice had been duly and properly served. the tribunal ought not to have misled itself by relying on the slip which contained a misleading note by an inspector that the correct name of the assessee was 'rash behari burman 'and not' rash behari das barman'. the tribunal ought to have taken note of the fact that the assessee had all .....
