    This is law of india dear..

    maker of law will never penalised..

  5. Shashikant G Goyal says:

    The govt. should have penalized its officers also similsrly who delay refunds by offering higher interest rates. This is nothing but premium on inefficiency. All laws are for dealers and tax payers, but no laws are ever enacted to see that babus perform efficiently and without delay.

  6. sunil b munadad says:

    weter it is applicable for demand earleier raised in inv orders also.of 2012-13

  7. ganeshan says:

    It seems that like interest rate in service tax was amended slab wise i.e. first 6 months of delay 18%, next six months 24% and thereafter 30%, similarly the interest rate is revised here in MVAT.

  8. Jitendra Patel says:

    Give power to appellate authority for remission too in genuine case as no businessman intends to delay tax payment. Also interest on refund should be given till date of assessment order. Equity demands just and fair provisions of law.

  9. Rajesh,Mumbai says:

    Do the same for Refunds.
