Can Tribunal take back what assessing officer has given?

From the above, it can be clearly seen that there is no blanket restriction on the powers of the Tribunal to enhance the assessment but the restriction on enhancement is in light of the judge – made law, or to put it differently, in light of the ratio decidendi of the binding judicial pronouncements.
