Per D. Manmohan, V.P.
This appeal arises out of the order dated 08.02.2011 passed by the
CIT(A) 12, Mumbai and it pertains to A.Y. 2007-08.
2. The case of the assessee is that the assessee was not given adequate
opportunity of being heard and hence the order passed by the CIT(A) is in
violation of principles of natural justice. In this regard he filed an affidavit of
the counsel, notice of hearing issued by the office of the CIT(A) and copy of
the adjournment letter submitted before the CIT(A), which clearly depicts
that the case was listed for hearing on 18.02.2011 and since counsel would
be away from town on the said date a request was made for granting
adjournment and accordingly the office of the Commissioner of Income Tax
granted adjournment to 08.03.2011 but to their utter surprise an order was
passed on 08.02.2011 without hearing the counsel. It was also submitted

that the appeal for A.Y. 2006-07 was argued by the counsel and
inadvertently the CIT(A) 12 disposed of the subsequent year's appeal also
3. The learned D.R. could not controvert the submissions made by the
4. Having regard to the circumstances of the case we are of the view that
the order passed by the CIT(A) is in violation of the principles of natural
justice. As announced in the open court, we set aside the order of the CIT(A)
and direct him to reconsider the issue afresh after giving proper opportunity
of hearing to the assessee.
5. In the result, appeal filed by the assessee is treated as allowed.
Order pronounced in the open court on 26th June 2012.
