HON'BLE APEX COURT VIDE JUDGMENT IN CASE OF M/S. SSA'S EMERALD MEADOWS (2016) 73 TAXMANN.COM 248(SC) DISMISSED THE SPECIAL LEAVE PETITION FILED BY THE REVENUE AGAINST THE JUDGMENT RENDERED BY HON'BLE HIGH COURT OF KARNATAKA WHEREBY IDENTICAL ISSUE WAS DECIDED IN FAVOUR OF THE ASSESSEE. OPERATIVE PART OF THE JUDGMENT IN CASE OF M/S. SSA'S EMERALD MEADOWS (SUPRA) DECIDED BY HON'BLE HIGH COURT OF KARNATAKA IS REP RODUCED BELOW : - '2. THIS APPEAL HAS BEEN FILED RAISING THE FOLLOWING SUBSTANTIAL QUESTIONS OF LAW: ITA NO S . 238 - 251 /CTK/20 20 5 (1) WHETHER OMISSION IF ASSESSING OFFICER TO EXPLICITLY MENTION THAT PENALTY PROCEEDINGS ARE BEING INITIATED FOR FURNISHING OF INACCU RATE PARTICULARS OR THAT FOR CONCEALMENT OF INCOME MAKES THE PENALTY ORDER LIABLE FOR CANCELLATION EVEN WHEN IT HAS BEEN PROVED BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT THAT THE ASSESSEE HAD CONCEALED INCOME IN THE FACTS AND CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE CASE? (2 WHETHE R ON THE FACTS AND IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE CASE THE TRIBUNAL WAS JUSTIFIED IN LAW IN. HOLDING THAT THE PENALTY NOTICE UNDER SECTION 274 R.W.S. 271(1)(C) IS HAD IN LAW AND. INVALID IN SPITE THE AMENDMENT OF SECTION 271(1 B) WITH RETROSPECTIV E EFFECT AND BY VIRTUE OF THE AMENDMENT THE ASSESSING OFFICER HAS INITIATED THE PENALTY BY PROPERLY RECORDING THE SATISFACTION FOR THE SAME? (3) WHETHER ON THE FACTS AND IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE CASE THE TRIBUNAL WAS JUSTIFIED IN DECIDING THE APPEALS AGAINST THE REVENUE ON THE BASIS OF NOTICE ISSUED UNDER SECTION 274 WITHOUT TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION THE ASSESSMENT ORDER WHEN THE ASSESSING OFFICER HAS SPECIFIED THAT THE ASSESSEE HAS CONCEALED PARTICULARS OF INCOME? 3. THE TRIBUNAL HAS ALLOWED THE APPEAL FILED BY THE ASSESSEE HOLDING THE NOTICE ISSUED BY THE ASSESSING OFFICER UNDER SECTION 274 READ WITH SECTION 271(1)(C) OF THE INCOME TAX ACT 1961 (FOR SHORT 'THE ACT') TO BE BAD IN LAW AS IT DID NOT SPECIFY WHICH LIMB OF SECTION 271(1)(C) OF THE A CT THE PENALTY PROCEEDINGS HAD BEEN INITIATED I.E. WHETHER FOR CONCEALMENT OF PARTICULARS OF INCOME OR FURNISHING OF INACCURATE PARTICULARS OF INCOME. .THE TRIBUNAL WHILE ALLOWING THE APPEAL OF THE ASSESSEE HAS RELIED 01 THE DERISION OF THE DIVISION BE NCH OF THIS COURT RENDERED IN THE CASE OF COMMISSIONER OR INCOME T AX - VS - MANJUNATHA C OTTON AND G INNING F ACTORY (2013) 359 ITR 565. 4. IN OUR VIEW SINCE THE MATTER IS COVERED BY JUDGMENT OF THE DIVISION BENCH OF THIS COURT WE ARE OF THE OPINION NO SU BSTANTIAL QUESTION OF LAW ARISES IN THIS APPEAL FOR DETERMINATION BY THIS COURT THE APPEAL IS ACCORDINGLY DISMISSED.' 9. BARE PERUSAL OF THE NOTICE ISSUED U/S 271(1)(C) OF THE ACT APPARENTLY GOES TO PROVE THAT THE ASSESSING OFFICER INITIATED THE PENA LTY PROCEEDINGS BY ISSUING THE NOTICE U/S 274/271(1)(C) OF THE ACT WITHOUT SPECIFYING WHETHER THE ASSESSEE HAS CONCEALED ''PARTICULARS OF INCOME' OR ASSESSEE HAS FURNISHED 'INACCURATE PARTICULARS OF INCOME' SO AS TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE OPPORTUNITY TO THE ASS ESSEE TO EXPLAIN THE SHOW ITA NO S . 238 - 251 /CTK/20 20 6 CAUSE NOTICE. RATHER NOTICE IN THIS CASE HAS BEEN ISSUED IN A STEREOTYPED MANNER WITHOUT APPLYING ANY MIND WHICH IS BAD IN LAW HENCE IS NOT A VALID NOTICE SUFFICIENT TO IMPOSE PENALTY U/S 271(1)(C) OF THE ACT. 10. THE PENALTY PRO VISIONS OF SECTION 271(1)(C) OF THE ACT ARE ATTRACTED WHERE THE ASSESSEE HAS CONCEALED THE PARTICULARS OF INCOME OR FURNISHED INACCURATE PARTICULARS OF SUCH INCOME. IT IS ALSO A WELL - ACCEPTED PROPOSITION THAT THE AFORESAID TWO LIMBS OF SECTION 271(1)(C) OF THE ACT CARRY DIFFERENT MEANINGS. THEREFORE IT WAS IMPERATIVE FOR THE ASSESSING OFFICER TO STRIKE - OFF THE IRRELEVANT LIMB SO AS TO MAKE THE ASSESSEE AWARE AS TO WHAT IS THE CHARGE MADE AGAINST HIM SO THAT HE CAN RESPOND ACCORDINGLY. THE HON'BLE KARNATAK A HIGH COURT IN THE CASE OF MANJUNATHA COTTON & GINNING FACTORY 359 ITR 565 (KAR) OBSERVED THAT THE LEVY OF PENALTY HAS TO BE CLEAR AS TO THE LIMB UNDER WHICH IT IS BEING LEVIED. AS PER HON'BLE HIGH COURT WHERE THE ASSESSING OFFICER PROPOSED TO INVOKE F IRST LIMB BEING CONCEALMENT THEN THE NOTICE HAS TO BE APPROPRIATELY MARKED. THE HON'BLE HIGH COURT HELD THAT THE STANDARD PROFORMA OF NOTICE UNDER SECTION 274 OF THE ACT WITHOUT STRIKING OF THE IRRELEVANT CLAUSES WOULD LEAD TO AN INFERENCE OF NON - APPLICAT ION OF MIND BY THE ASSESSING OFFICER. THE HON'BLE SUPREME COURT IN THE CASE OF DILIP N. SHROFF VS. JCIT 291 ITR 519 (SC) HAS ALSO NOTICED THAT WHERE THE ASSESSING OFFICER ISSUES NOTICE UNDER SECTION 274 OF THE ACT IN THE STANDARD PROFORMA AND THE INAPPROP RIATE WORDS ITA NO S . 238 - 251 /CTK/20 20 7 ARE NOT DELETED THE SAME WOULD POSTULATE THAT THE ASSESSING OFFICER WAS NOT SURE AS TO WHETHER HE WAS TO PROCEED ON THE BASIS THAT THE ASSESSEE HAD CONCEALED THE PARTICULARS OF HIS INCOME OR FURNISHED INACCURATE PARTICULARS OF INCOME. ACCORDIN G TO THE HON'BLE SUPREME COURT IN SUCH A SITUATION LEVY OF PENALTY SUFFERS FROM NON - APPLICATION OF MIND. IN THE BACKGROUND OF THE AFORESAID LEGAL POSITION AND HAVING REGARD TO THE MANNER IN WHICH THE ASSESSING OFFICER HAS ISSUED NOTICE UNDER SECTION 274 R.W.S. 271(1)(C) OF THE ACT ALL DATED 26. 12 .201 7 FOR THE RESPECTIVE ASSESSMENT YEARS UNDER CONSIDERATION WITHOUT STRIKING OFF THE IRRELEVANT WORDS THE PENALTY PROCEEDINGS SHOW A NON - APPLICATION OF MIND BY THE ASSESSING OFFICER AND IS THUS UNSUST AINABLE. 11. THE FACTS OF THE PRESENT APPEAL ARE IDENTICAL TO THE FACTS OF THE CASE BEFORE THE HONBLE SUPREME COURT IN THE CASE OF SSAS. EMARLD MEADOWS(SUPRA) AND THEREFORE THE DECISION OF HONBLE SUPREME COURT SQUARELY APPLIES TO THE CASE OF THE ASSES SEE. HENCE PENALTY U/S.271(1)(C) OF THE ACT IMPOSED BY THE AO AND UPHELD BY THE LD. CIT(A) BASED ON A DEFECTIVE NOTICE CANNOT BE HELD GOOD CORRECT AND SUSTAINABLE AS PER THE PROPOSITION OF THE HONBLE SUPREME COURT. 12. FURTHER THE CONTENTION OF THE L D. DR THAT SECTION 292BB OF THE ACT IS APPLICABLE IN THE PRESENT CASE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE BECAUSE AFTER CAREFUL READING OF SECTION 292BB OF THE ACT WE FOUND THAT THIS SECTION IS APPLICABLE FOR ISSUANCE OF NOTICE WHICH IS NOT IN THE PRESENT CASE. THE ITA NO S . 238 - 251 /CTK/20 20 8 ASSE SSEE IS NOT DENYING THE ISSUANCE OF NOTICE AND THE ASSESSEE IS OBJECTING THE PARTICULAR LIMB REGARDING IMPOSING OF THE PENALTY IS NOT CLEAR UNDER WHICH THE AO WANTS TO IMPOSE THE PENALTY U/S.271(1)(C) OF THE ACT. THEREFORE THE CASE LAW RELIED ON BY THE LD . DR IN THE CASE OF HONBLE SUPREME COURT IN THE CASE OF CIT VS. LAXMAN DAS KHANDELWAL [2019] 108 TAXMANN.COM 183 (SC) IS NOT APPLICABLE IN THE PRESENT CASE. 13. FURTHER THE LD. DR OF THE ASSESSEE HAS ALSO RELIED ON THE JUDGMENT OF THE HONBLE APEX COUR T IN THE CASE OF SUNDARAM FINANCE LIMITED VS. DCIT (2018) 259 TAXMAN 0220 (SC) AGAINST THE DECISION OF HONBLE MADRAS HIGH COURT WHICH HAS BEEN DECIDED IN FAVOUR OF THE REVENUE IS APPLICABLE ONLY FOR THE JURISDICTIONAL HIGH COURT BECAUSE THE SPECIAL LEAVE PETITION HAS BEEN DISMISSED BY STATING AS THE CIVIL APPEAL OF THE ASSESSEE IS DISMISSED WITH NO ORDER AS TO COSTS. I N THE DISMISSAL OF APPEAL AGAINST THE HIGH COURT OF MADRAS THERE IS NO DETAILED ORDER. WE ALSO OBSERVED IN THAT CASE THE IMPUGNED ISSUE WAS RAISED BY THE ASSESSEE BEFORE THE HONBLE HIGH COURT AFTER LAPSE OF 10 YEARS. IN THIS CASE THE ASSESSEE IS CONTESTING THIS ISSUE RIGHT FROM THE FIRST APPELLATE AUTHORITY. THEREFORE THE CASE LAW RELIED ON BY THE LD. DR IS ALSO NOT APPLICABLE IN THE PR ESENT CASE IN HAND. THE LD. DR ALSO TRIED TO DISTINGUISH THE JUDGMENT OF THE HONBLE JURISDICTIONAL HIGH COURT IN THE CASE OF ANANTA GOPAL KAR A TKAL VS. INCOME TAX OFFICER BALASORE ITA NO.30 OF 2005 DATED 10.04.2019 BUT HE COULD NOT SUCCEED. FOR ITA NO S . 238 - 251 /CTK/20 20 9 COMPLET ENESS OF OUR ORDER WE WOULD LIKE TO REPRODUCE T HE OBSERVATIONS OF THE HONBLE HIGH COURT AS UNDER : - 10.04.2019 HEARD LEARNED COUNSEL FOR THE APPELLANT AND LEARNED COUNSEL FOR THE RESPONDENT. BY WAY OF THIS APPEAL THE APPELLANT - ASSESSEE HAS CHALLENGED THE JUDGMENT AND ORDER OF THE TRIBUNAL WHEREBY THE TRIBUNAL HAS DISMISSED THE APPEAL IMPOSING PENALTY.

LEARNED COUNSEL FOR THE APPELLANT REL IED UPON THE DECISION OF THE KARNATAKA HIGH COURT IN THE CASE OF COMMISSIONER OF INCOME TAX AND ANOTHER VERSUS 1. MANJUNATHA COTTON AND GINNING FACTORY 2.

RELYING ON THE DECISION OF THE HONBLE SUPREME COURT IN CIT V. RELIANCE PETROPRODUCTS P.LTD. : (2010) 322 ITR 158 (SC) PARAGRAPHS 35 & 46. HOWEVER CONSIDERING THAT THE RESPONDENT DISPUTED THE SAME AND RELI ED UPON TWO DECISIONS OF THE HONBLE SUPREME COURT WHEREIN SLP WAS DISMISSED. ONE IS SUNDARAM FINANCE LTD.

ASSISTANT COMMISS IONER OF ITA NO.30 OF 2005 2 INCOME - TAX REPORTED IN [2019] 103 TAXMANN.COM208(SC).
