3. Learned counsel for the petitioner contends that respondent no.2 has withheld the refund due to the petitioner without any reason and/or explanation. He submits that under Section 241A of the Act, the Assessing Officer can pass an order withholding the grant of refund (after satisfying all the parameters laid down under Section 241A of the Act) only up to the date on which assessment is made i.e. during the pendency of the scrutiny assessment and not once an order under Section 143 (3) has been passed and the scrutiny assessment has concluded – like in the present case. In support of his submission, he relies upon the orders of this Court in M/S. Fis Payment Solutions & Services India Pvt. Ltd. vs. DCIT, W.P.(C) 2162/2020 and Hyosung Corporation v. UOI & Ors., W.P.(C) 4681/2020.
