In the case of Vishal Garg & Ors. Vs. Union of India & Anr., Punjab & Haryana HC instructed CBDT extend due date of Tax Audit cases to 31st October 2015 from existing 30th September 2015. Its not clear if the due date for non audit cases also been extended or not for which we have to wait for official order. High Court has also issued guideline for timely issue of Income Tax Return Forms.
We would further like to inform our readers that its just Court Instruction to CBDT to extend the due date, but CBDT has not yet officially issued any Order in Compliance of High Court Order.
High Court Order is Binding on CBDT till Supreme Court Stays it or reverses the High Court Judgment. Further in case of Judgment on same issue by different High Courts, the Judgment of Jurisdiction High Court will prevail and in case of no Judgment by Jurisdiction High Court than Assessee may choose the Judgment of High Court which is more beneficial to him (CIT vs M/S. Vegetables Products Ltd. (Supreme Court) 88 ITR 192). Further Judgment by bench of High Court will prevail over Judgment of Single Judge even if the same is from Judge of different high Court.
Delhi High Court Judgment was Single Bench Judgment which goes against the Assessee and Rajasthan High Court Judgment which is also against the Assessee is by a bench of two judges.
We will share the copy of judgment as soon as same been received by us.
Please confirm also CBDT Notification before relying on the above news.
