                holiday.      As   such   on   the   facts   and    in   the
                circumstances of the case Ld. Commissioner of Income

4.   Upon assessee's       appeal Ld. Commissioner of Income Tax (A)

passed an exparte order. Ld. Commissioner of Income Tax (A) noted

that no compliance was made, despite issue of several notices.            Ld.

Commissioner of Income Tax (A) further noted that last opportunity

                                                             ITA NO. 5407/Del/2012

was given by letter dated 3.8.2012 fixing the          date of hearing as

10.8.2012.     Since no compliance was made, Ld. Commissioner of

Income Tax (A) proceeded to pass the order exparate. On merits Ld.

Commissioner of Income Tax (A) did not go into the details, however,

he affirmed the action of the Assessing Officer.

5.    Against the above order the Assessee is in appeal before us.

6.    We have heard the rival contentions in light of the material

produced. Ld. Counsel of the assessee submitted that assessee has

not been given proper opportunity of being heard by the Ld.

Commissioner of Income Tax (A).           He submitted that vide notice

dated 03.8.2011, the date of hearing was fixed for 10.8.2012 and the

said date was a Gazzetted Holiday being `Krishna Janamasthani'.

Hence, it was pleaded that Ld. Commissioner of Income Tax (A) erred

in proceeding on exparte order on 10.8.2012.

6.1   Ld.    Departmental   Representative     could   not        refute     the

submissions that the date of hearing fixed by the Ld. Commissioner of

Income Tax (A) was a Gazzetted Holiday. In our considered opinion,

interest of justice will be served, if the matter is remitted to the file of

the Ld. Commissioner of Income Tax (A).      Ld. Commissioner of Income

Tax (A) shall grant the assessee proper opportunity of being heard and

thereafter pass an appropriate order accordingly.

                                                        ITA NO. 5407/Del/2012

statistical purposes.
