IN THE INCOME TAX APPELLATE TRIBUNAL MUMBAI BENCH “SMC” MUMBAI BEFORE SHRI MAHAVIR SINGH VICE PRESIDENT ITA NO. 1314/MUM/2020 : A.Y : 2014-15 M/s. Shree Momai Krupa Jewellers C-Wing Gala No. 219 Akurli Industrial Estate Akurli Road Kandivali (E) Mumbai 400 101. PAN : ABQFS7376G (Appellant) Vs. Asstt. Commissioner of Income Tax – 32(3) Mumbai. (Respondent) Appellant by : Ms. Laxmi Thakur Respondent by : Shri Vivek Perampurna Date of Hearing : 28/10/2021 Date of Pronouncement : 05/11/2021 O R D E R This appeal by the assessee is arising out of the order of Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals)-45 Mumbai (in short ‘CIT(A)’) in Appeal No. CIT(A)-45/ ACIT-32(3)/ITA-56/2017-18 dated 03.05.2019. The assessment was framed by Asstt. Commissioner of Income Tax – 32(3) Mumbai for Assessment Year 2014-15 vide his order dated 07.12.2016 under Section 143(3) of the Income Tax Act 1961 (hereinafter referred to as ‘the Act’). 2. At the outset the learned counsel for the assessee fairly stated that the CIT(A) has dismissed the appeal for non-prosecution and that the order is passed ex parte based on merits. The learned counsel stated that no opportunity of being heard was provided by the CIT(A) and hence she 2 ITA No. 1314/Mum/2020 M/s. Shree Momai Krupa Jewellers requested that the matter be restored back to the file of CIT(A) for allowing reasonable opportunity of being heard to the assessee so that the appeal before CIT(A) can be represented properly. To this proposition the learned Sr. DR has not raised any objection. 3. After hearing both the sides and going through the order of the CIT(A) it is noticed that no doubt the CIT(A) has issued notices three times but the assessee could not attend. It seems that the CIT(A) dismissed the appeal of assessee for non-prosecution and even the issue was decided on merits after considering the records. It seems that the CIT(A) has not allowed reasonable opportunity of being heard to the assessee. Hence I set aside the order of CIT(A) and remand the matter back to his file for afresh adjudication. Needless to say CIT(A) will allow reasonable opportunity of being heard to the assessee. The assessee is also directed to represent the case as and when it is fixed. 4. In the result appeal of the assessee is allowed for statistical purposes. Order pronounced in the open court on 5 th November 2021.
