CIT(A)-I KANPUR DATED 28/12/2017 FOR ASSESSMENT YEAR 2013- 14. 2. IN THIS CASE AN APPLICATION DATED 12/11/2019 HAS BEEN MOVED ON BEHALF OF THE ASSESSEE FOR ADJOURNMENT TO SOME OTHER DATE PREFERABLY AFTER 15 DAYS. SINCE THERE WAS NO JUSTIFIABLE REASON FOR ADJOURNMENT AND ALSO CONSIDERING THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO REGULAR FUNCTIONING OF THE BENCH IN ALLAHABAD WE REJECT THE APPLICATION FOR ADJOURNMENT AND PROCEED TO DISPOSE OF THE APPEAL AFTER HEARING THE LD. D.R. AND AFTER CONSIDERING THE MATERIAL PLACED ON RECORD. THE MATTER WE FIND CAN BE PROCEEDED WITH IN THE ABSENCE OF THE ASSESSEE. 3. BY VIRTUE OF THE IMPUGNED ORDER THE LD. CIT(A) HAS DISMISSED THE ASSESSEES APPEAL FOR NON PROSECUTION OBSERVING THAT THE APPELLANT IS NOT INTERESTED IN PROSECUTING HIS APPEAL. THE ITA NO.136/ALLD/2018 PAGE 2 OF 3 LD. CIT(A) HAS RECORDED CERTAIN DATES OF HEARING IN HIS ORDER BUT IT IS NOT CLEAR FROM HIS ORDER WHETHER NOTICE OF HEARING WAS EVER SERVED UPON THE ASSESSEE. SUCH SERVICE OF NOTICES HAS HOWEVER BEEN DISPUTED BY THE ASSESSEE. 4. HEARD. WE FIND THAT THE CIT(A) HAS DISMISSED THE APPEAL WITHOUT PROVIDING PROPER OPPORTUNITY TO THE ASSESSEE. MOREOVER THE LD. CIT(A) HAS NOT DISPOSED OF THE APPEAL ON MERIT AFTER AFFORDING OPPORTUNITY OF HEARING TO THE ASSESSEE. AS SUCH ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY OF HEARING REQUIRES TO BE GIVEN TO THE ASSESSEE TO REPRESENT HIS CASE FULLY BEFORE THE LD. CIT(A). EVEN OTHERWISE IT IS TRITE [S. VELU PALANDAR VS. DCIT 83 ITR 683 (MAD.) AND MS. SWATI PAWA VS. DY. CIT 175 ITD 622 (DEL)] AND INCUMBENT ON THE LD CIT(A) TO DECIDE AN APPEAL ON MERIT EVEN IN THE ABSENCE OF ANY REPRESENTATION BEFORE THEM. 5.
