Caritas India CBCI Centre 1, Ashok Place, Near Goledakkhana New Delhi 100 001 Vs. ITO (E) Trust Ward-III, New Delhi.
August, 18th 2015
                 IN THE INCOME TAX APPELLATE TRIBUNAL
                      DELHI BENCHES : B" NEW DELHI

                 BEFORE SHRI T.S. KAPOOR, ACCOUNTANT MEMBER
                              AND
                  SHRI C.M. GARG, JUDICIAL MEMBER

                            ITA No. 74/Del/2011
                       Assessment Year : 2004-05

            Caritas India                   vs.     ITO (E)
            CBCI Centre                             Trust Ward-III,
            1, Ashok Place, Near Goledakkhana      New Delhi.
            New Delhi 100 001
            PAN AAATC0399L
            (Appellant)                               (Respondent)

                   Assessee by :- None
                  Department by:- Md. Mohsin Alam, CIT,DR



                                ORDER



PER T.S. KAPOOR, ACCOUNTANT MEMBER




      This is an appeal filed by the assessee directed against   the order of

Ld.CIT(A), XII, New Delhi dt. 26.10.2010 for the Assessment Year 2004-05

confirming an assessment order u/s 143(3) of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

However, at the time of hearing no one was present on behalf of the assessee

nor any application for adjournment was on record. Therefore the case was

passed over. In the second round also nobody appeared on behalf of assessee.

We find that notice intimating the date of hearing was duly served on the
                                           2







assessee. In these facts we are of the view that the assessee does not seem to

be interested in pursuing its appeal before the Tribunal. Hon'ble Madhya

Pradesh High Court in the case of Tukojirao Holkar Vs CWT 223 ITR

480 (MP), while dismissing the reference made at the instance of the assessee

in default, made the following observations:-


             "If the party at whose instance, the reference is made, fails to
             appear at the hearing or fails in taking steps for preparation of the
             paper books so as to enable hearing of the reference, the court is
             not bound to answer the reference."


2.    ITAT Delhi Bench `D' in the case of CIT vs Multiplan India (P) Ltd. 38

ITD 320 observed that the provisions of Rule 19 state that mere issue of notice

could not by itself mean that the appeal had been admitted.              This rule only

clarifies the position. There might be various reasons with the appellant to

remain absent at the time of hearing. One of the reasons might also be a desire

or absence of need to prosecute the appeal or liability to assist the Tribunal in a

proper manner or to take benefit of vagaries of law.




3.    Respectfully following the precedents, the appeal filed by the assessee is

treated as un-admitted and dismissed in limine.          We may like to clarify that

subsequently, if the assessee explains the reasons for non-appearance and if the

Bench is so satisfied, the matter may be recalled for the purpose of adjudication

of the appeal.

4.        In the result, the appeal filed by the assessee is dismissed for non-

prosecution

5.        This decision was pronounced in the Open Court on the date of hearing
itself i.e. on 17th August, 2015.
