PER G.C. GUPTA,
This appeal by the assessee for the AY 2007-08 is directed
against the order of learned CIT(A)-IX, New Delhi dated 2nd May, 2012.
2. At the time of hearing of the appeal, the learned counsel for the
assessee showed his inability to assist the Court in disposing off the
matter on merits and also filed an application dated 18th February,
2015 for adjournment of the case fixed on 19th February, 2015, which
was rejected by the Bench. The case had been adjourned on a number
of occasions right from 20th February, 2013 at the request of the
assessee. The hearing was adjourned in this case at the request of the
assessee on six earlier occasions and on seventh, the date of hearing
i.e. on 17th February, 2015, the matter was adjourned at the request of
the assessee for 19th February, 2015 and it was specifically mentioned
by the Bench that the next date of hearing would be the last
opportunity to the assessee. On 19th February, 2015, still the
representative of the assessee is unable to assist the Bench and
accordingly, we are left with no alternative but to dismiss the appeal of
the assessee in limine as not admitted. While taking this view, we
derive support from the decision of Delhi Bench of ITAT in the case of
CIT vs. Multiplan India (P.) Ltd.  38 ITD 320 (Delhi).
3. In the result, the appeal filed by the assessee is dismissed in
Decision pronounced in the open Court on 4th March, 2015.
