Introduction: In the case of G.K. Reddy vs. DCIT, the Madras High Court issued a directive to the Income Tax Department to release the attachment on a pension account.

The case began with a writ petition filed by the appellant, who sought to lift the attachment on two bank accounts maintained at State Bank of India.

Reddy, filed a writ petition (W.P.No.6195 of 2022) seeking a writ of mandamus to lift the attachment on two bank accounts: Account No. 64000304842 and Account No. 57002167239, held at State Bank of India’s Anna Nagar Roundatana Branch and Anna Nagar East Branch, respectively.

The learned Judge, in an order dated 13.07.2023, directed the respondent (Income Tax Department) to lift the attachment concerning the appellant’s pension.
