Tvl. ITNL-KMB (J.V.) Vs Deputy Commissioner of (ST) (Madras High Court)

The Hon’ble Madras High Court in Tvl. ITNL-KMB (J.V.) v. The Deputy Commissioner of (ST), [W.P. Nos.2850 and 2852 of 2023 and W.M.P. Nos.2968 and 2973 of 2023 dated February 3, 2023] quashed the assessment order and the consequential recovery notice issued by the Revenue Department on the grounds that no opportunity of hearing was afforded to the assessee and contentions of the assessee were also not considered, thus the same was a violation of the principles of natural justice. Remanded the matter back to the Revenue Department for fresh consideration in accordance with the law after providing the opportunity of hearing to the Petitioner.


Tvl. ITNL-KMB (J.V.) (“the Petitioner”) has challenged the Assessment Order dated May 30, 2022 (“the Impugned Order”) and the consequential recovery notice dated November 30, 2022 (“the Impugned Notice”) issued by the Revenue Department (“the Respondent”) on the grounds that the Impugned Order has been passed erroneously by total non-application of mind as a moratorium order dated October 15, 2018, has been issued by the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (“the NCLAT”) under Section 241 read with Section 242 of the Companies Act, 2013 (“the Companies Act”). The Petitioner had replied to the Impugned Notice wherein it had submitted that Assessment proceedings couldn’t be proceeded with once a moratorium order has been passed by the NCLAT under the Companies Act, as such moratorium order is similar to the moratorium issued under Section 14 of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 (“IBC”). However, the Respondent has not considered such reply.

Being aggrieved, this petition has been filed.
