CWT vs Masood Halim

R.K. Agrawal and Prakash Krishna, JJ

WT Reference No. 213 of 1989

16 December 2004

A.N. Mahajan for the Applicant

ORDER

1. The Income-tax Appellate Tribunal, Allahabad, has referred the following question of law under section 27(3) of the Wealth-tax Act, 1957 (hereinafter referred to as 'the Act') for opinion to this Court :-

"Whether, on the facts and in the circumstances of the case, the I.T.A.T. was correct in law in directing to compute the value of the residential property in accordance with rule 1BB of the Wealth-tax Rules which came into force w.e.f. 1-4-1979 ?'

2. Reference relates to the assessment years 1969-70 to 1974-75.

3. We have heard Sri A.N. Mahajan, learned standing counsel for the revenue. Nobody has appeared on behalf of the respondent.

4. The question referred in the present reference is squarely covered by the decision of the Apex Court in the case of CWT v. Sharvan Kumar Swarup and Sons [1994] 210 ITR 8861. The Apex Court in the aforesaid decision has held that rule 1BB of the Wealth-tax Rules is procedural in nature and applies retrospectively to all pending assessments. Thus, it is applicable for the assessment years 1969-70 to 1974-75 even though it came on the statute book on 1st April, 1979.

5. In this view of the matter, we answer the question referred to us in the affirmative, i.e., in favour of the assessee and against the revenue. However, there shall be no order as to costs.
