LD.SR.DR SUBMITTED THAT NO REASONABLE CAUSE IS S HOWN BY THE ASSESSEE AS TO WHY FOR RECALLING THE ORDER. HE POI NTED OUT THAT ON VARIOUS OCCASIONS THE ASSESSEE EITHER REMAINED ABSENT OR S OUGHT ADJOURNMENT. HE FURTHER SUBMITTED THAT THE ASSESSEE IS NOT INTER ESTED IN PROSECUTING THE PRESENT APPLICATION.

WE HAVE HEARD LD.SR.DR AND PERUSED THE MATERIAL AVAILABLE ON RECORD. IN THE INSTANT CASE THE APPEAL OF THE ASSESSEE BEA RING ITA NO.587/AHD/2010 FOR AY 2006-07 WAS DISMISSED BY ITAT D BENCH AHME DABAD VIDE ORDER DATED 24/05/2012 FOR WANT OF PROSECUTION. IT IS NO TICED BY THE TRIBUNAL THAT NONE APPEARED ON BEHALF OF THE ASSESSEE ON THE DATE FIXED FOR HEARING. CONSEQUENTLY APPEAL OF THE ASSESSEE WAS DISMISSED FOR WANT OF PROSECUTION. NOW THE APPELLANT-ASSESSEE WAS PREFERRED OF THE PRE SENT APPLICATION ON THE GROUND THAT VERY SHORT SPAN OF TIME WAS ALLOWED TO THE ASSESSEE FOR MAKING REPRESENTATION BEFORE THIS TRIBUNAL. THE REASON OF NON-APPEARANCE IS STATED THAT PREVIOUS COUNSEL FOR THE ASSESSEE SHRI VIRESH RUDALAL COULD NOT TAKE ADJOURNMENT OWING TO COMMUNICATION GAP. WE FIND TH AT THE PRESENT APPLICATION WAS FIXED FOR HEARING ON 2/11/2012 AND ON THE SAID DATE NONE APPEARED ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT. THE MATTER WA S ADJOURNED FOR 07/12/2012. ON THIS DATE ALSO NO ONE APPEARED ON BEHALF OF THE ASSESSEE. CONSEQUENTLY FRESH NOTICES WERE ISSUED AND THE MATTER WAS FIXED FOR HEARING ON 01/03/2013. ON THE DATE OF HEARING I.E.

THE REQUEST FOR ADJOURNMENT WAS EXCEEDED AND THE MATTER WAS FIXED F OR HEARING ON 03/05/2013 ON THE REQUEST OF THE COUNSEL FOR THE ASSESSEE. BU T ON 03/05/2013 THE SAME OLD STORY WAS REPEATED I.E. NONE APPEARED ON BEHALF OF THE ASSESSEE AND THE INTEREST OF JUSTICE THE HEARING OF APPLICATION IS ADJOURNED FOR 17/05/2013. ON THIS DATE ALSO NONE APPEARED ON BEHALF OF THE ASSESSEE. HEA RING OF THE APPLICATION WAS ADJOURNED IN THE INTEREST OF JUSTICE FOR 5/07/2013. HOWEVER ON THE APPOINTED DATE NONE APPEARED ON BEHALF OF THE ASSESSEE. THI S IS THE CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF THE APPLICANT AND HIS REP RESENTATIVES. SUCH PRACTICE IS HIGHLY DEPRECATED.
