                                                                      Page 2 of 5



       All these appeals are filed by the Revenue and are directed against

separate orders of the Ld.CIT, New Delhi for the Assessment Year 2001-02 to


2.     The assessee also filed a C.O. no.23/Del/2013 for the Assessment Year


3.     The short point for consideration in these appeals, is whether penalty

order passed u/s 271(1)(c ) of the Act, is barred by limitation.

3.1.   The dates and events which are important are as follows:-

The ITAT has disposed off the quantum appeal on 30.4.2010. The same was

received in the Office of Ld.CIT, Central II, New Delhi on 19.7.2010. The order

u/s 271(1)(c ) was passed on 28.2.2011, which is beyond the period of six

months from the date of receipt of the order of the ITAT by the CIT, Central II.

The assessee has raised the issue of limitation, before the Assessing Officer.

The Assessing Officer rejected the contention by holding that the order of the

ITAT was received by CIT-IV, on 30.9.2010 and that after decentralization, the

CIT-IV is the jurisdictional CIT. On appeal the First Appellate Authority upheld

the contention of the assessee that the order of penalty is barred by limitation.

4.     Aggrieved the Revenue is in appeal before us.
                                                                      Page 3 of 5

5.    The Ld.D.R. submitted that initially these group cases were notified for

being assessed centrally under the jurisdiction of CIT(Central)-II, New Delhi.

Thereafter the CCIT has passed an order u/s 127 of the Act on 28.5.2010,

decentralizing the cases from the Central Circle. Due to a mistake these group

of cases, did not find place in this notification of decentralization and the CCIT

passed a Corrigendum on 17.9.2010 including these group of cases.              He

argued that the Corrigendum relates back to 28.5.2010 i.e. the date of order

passed u/s 127.    It was submitted that     consequent to decentralization the

Jurisdictional Commissioner, is not CIT, Central II, but is CIT-IV and that the

CIT-IV   received the copy of the order of the ITAT only on 30.9.2010 and

consequently an order u/s 271(1)(c) passed on 28.2.2011 is within time.

6.    This contention of the Ld.D.R. cannot be accepted. Prior to passing of

the Corrigendum by the CCIT to his order u/s 127 No.CIT(C )-II/C&T/2011-

234 dt. 17.9.2010, the order of the Tribunal was received by the CIT, Central

II, New Delhi on 19.7.2005. In our considered view the limitation as prescribed

in S.275(1)(a), is to be counted from this date. Thus, we uphold the order of

the First Appellate Authority that the penalty is levied in all these cases are

barred by limitation.

7.    The assessee has filed a paper book running into pages 1 to 19 to

demonstrate that the order of the ITAT was received by the CIT, Central Circle

I, New Delhi before the jurisdiction of the case was transferred to CIT-IV.    He

also wanted to draw the attention of this Bench to certain replies obtained in

response to applications made under the Right to Information Act. As we have
                                                                        Page 4 of 5

upheld the order of the First Appellate Authority, we need not go into these


8.    In the result all the appeals filed by the Revenue are dismissed.

9.    For the Assessment Year 2002-03 there is a discussion on merits of the

case. The Cross Objection by the assessee for the Assessment Year 2002-03 is

also on the issue on merits. In view of our above find that all the appeals by

the Revenue are barred by limitation, we would not go into the merits of the

case as well as the C.O. filed by the assesse, as it would be an academic

exercise. In the result, the C.O. filed by the assessee is dismissed.
10. In the result the appeals filed by the revenue for all the AYs are dismissed and the C.O. filed by the assessee for Assessment Year 2002-03 also stands dismissed as `infructuous'.
