September, 07th 2010

D.—Collection and recovery

When tax payable and when assessee deemed in default.

74220. (1) Any amount, otherwise than by way of advance tax, specified as payable in a notice of demand under section 156 shall be paid within 75[thirty] days of the service of the notice at the place and to the person mentioned in the notice :

Provided that, where the 76[Assessing] Officer has any 77reason to believe that it will be 77detrimental to revenue if the full period of 78[thirty] days aforesaid is allowed, he may, with the previous approval of the 79[Joint Commissioner], direct that the sum specified in the notice of demand shall be paid within such period being a period less than the period of 80[thirty] days aforesaid, as may be specified by him in the notice of demand.

81(2) If the amount specified in any notice of demand under section 156 is not paid within the period limited under sub-section (1), the assessee shall be liable to pay simple interest at 82[83[one] per cent for every month or part of a month comprised in the period commencing from the day immediately following the end of the period mentioned in sub-section (1) and ending with the day on which the amount is paid :]

84[Provided that, where as a result of an order under section 154, or section 155, or section 250, or section 254, or section 260, or section 262, or section 264 85[or an order of the Settlement Commission under sub-section (4) of section 245D], the amount on which interest was payable under this section had been reduced, the interest shall be reduced accordingly and the excess interest paid, if any, shall be refunded :]

85[Provided further that in respect of any period commencing on or before the 31st day of March, 1989 and ending after that date, such interest shall, in respect of so much of such period as falls after that date, be calculated at the rate of one and one-half per cent, for every month or part of a month.]

86[(2A) Notwithstanding anything contained in sub-section (2), 87[the 88[Chief Commissioner or Commissioner] may] reduce or waive the amount of interest 89[paid or] payable by an assessee under the said sub-section if 90[he is satisfied] that—

           (i)  payment of such amount 91[has caused or] would cause genuine hardship to the assessee ;

          (ii)  default in the payment of the amount on which interest 91[has been paid or] was payable under the said sub-section was due to circumstances beyond the control of the assessee ; and

         (iii)  the assessee has co-operated in any inquiry relating to the assessment or any proceeding for the recovery of any amount due from him.]

(3) Without prejudice to the provisions contained in sub-section (2)92, on an application made by the assessee before the expiry of the due date under sub-section (1), the 93[Assessing] Officer may extend the time for payment or allow payment by instalments, subject to such conditions as he may think fit to impose in the circumstances of the case.

(4) If the amount is not paid within the time limited under sub-section (1) or extended under sub-section (3), as the case may be, at the place and to the person mentioned in the said notice the assessee shall be deemed to be in default.

(5) If, in a case where payment by instalments is allowed under sub-section (3), the assessee commits defaults in paying any one of the instalments within the time fixed under that sub-section, the assessee shall be deemed to be in default as to the whole of the amount then outstanding, and the other instalment or instalments shall be deemed to have been due on the same date as the instalment actually in default.

(6) Where an assessee has presented an appeal under section 246 94[or section 246A] the 95[Assessing] Officer may, in his discretion and subject to such conditions as he may think fit to impose in the circumstances of the case, treat the assessee as not being in default in respect of the amount in dispute in the appeal, even though the time for payment has expired, as long as such appeal remains undisposed of.

(7) Where an assessee has been assessed in respect of income arising outside India in a country the laws of which prohibit or restrict the remittance of money to India, the 95[Assessing] Officer shall not treat the assessee as in default in respect of that part of the tax which is due in respect of that amount of his income which, by reason of such prohibition or restriction, cannot be brought into India, and shall continue to treat the assessee as not in default in respect of such part of the tax until the prohibition or restriction is removed.

Explanation.—For the purposes of this section, income shall be deemed to have been brought into India if it has been utilised or could have been utilised for the purposes of any expenditure actually incurred by the assessee outside India or if the income, whether capitalised or not, has been brought into India in any form.
