THE SAID O RDER IS REPRODUCED IN ITS ENTIRETY:- IN THIS CASE THE TRIBUNAL HAD PASSED ORDER ON THE APPEAL OF THE ASSESSEE-COMPANY ON 17.08.2009 IN WHICH THE APPEAL WAS PARTLY ALLOWED AS DISCUSSED IN THE ORDER. THE R EVENUE FILED A MISCELLANEOUS APPLICATION ON 23.02.2011 REQUESTI NG FOR RECALLING THE ORDER ON THE GROUND THAT THE APPEAL OF THE REVENUE WAS NOT TAKEN UP ALONG WITH THE APPEAL OF THE ASSESS EE. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE IN VIEW OF THE PRINCIPLE LAI D DOWN BY HONBLE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA IN THE CASE OF CIT VS. VIJAY INTERNATIONAL UDYOG LTD. 152 ITR 111. 2. IN THE COURSE OF HEARING BEFORE US THE LD. DR FILED THE PAPERS REGARDING THE APPEAL OF THE REVENUE AND RE QUESTED THAT IN VIEW OF THE AFORESAID DECISION BOTH THE AP PEALS SHOULD HAVE BEEN HEARD TOGETHER. ACCORDINGLY IT WAS REQUESTED THAT THE ORDER MAY BE RECALLED AND BOTH THE APPEALS MAY BE HEARD TOGETHER. 3. IN REPLY THE LD. COUNSEL FOR THE ASSESSEE SU BMITTED THAT THE ONLY COMMON GROUND IN THE TWO APPEALS IS REGARD ING DISALLOWANCE TO BE MADE U/S 14A. IN THE APPEAL OF THE ASSESSEE THIS GROUND HAS BEEN RESTORED TO THE FILE OF THE AO FOR FRESH DECISION AS PER LAW. ACCORDINGLY THE APPLICATION IS OPPOSED. 4. WE HAVE CONSIDERED THE FACTS OF THE CASE THE SUBMISSIONS MADE BEFORE US AND THE GROUNDS TAKEN B Y THE REVENUE IN ITS APPEAL.

THUS TH IS GROUND IS TREATED AS ALLOWED FOR STATISTICAL PURPO SES. 4.1 THEREFORE NO PREJUDICE IS CAUSED TO THE REVENUE FROM THE DISPOSAL OF ITS APPEAL. AT THE SAME TIME IT IS SEEN FROM THE RECORD OF THE PROCEEDINGS THAT THE PENDENCY OF REVEN UES APPEAL WAS NOT BROUGHT TO THE NOTICE OF THE TRIBUNAL AT THE TIME OF HEARING OF THE ASSESSEES APPEAL. IF THE SAME WAS DONE THEN THE TWO APPEALS WOULD HAVE BEEN CONSOLIDATED F OR THE PURPOSE OF DISPOSAL BY WAY OF COMMON ORDER IN TH E LIGHT OF THE PRINCIPLE LAID DOWN BY HONBLE SUPREME COURT IN TH E CASE OF VIJAY INTERNATIONAL UDYOG LTD.
