Once an appeal against the order passed by an authority is preferred and is decided by the appellate authority, the order of the said authority merges into the order of the appellate authority; with this merger, order of the original authority ceases to exist and the order of the appellate authority prevails; the limitation for the purpose of section 154(7) is to be counted from the date of this order of CIT (A) and not the date of original order of assessment.

In assessment years 1995-96 and 1996-97, the only identical reason recorded by the Assessing Officer for reopening the assessment, with variation in the amounts involved, is that the interest income under section 244 A has escaped assessment and to reassess the same under section 147 of the Act notice under section 148 of the Act was issued. While completing the assessment under section 143(3) read with section 148 the Assessing Officer applied a higher rate of tax, i.e. @ 55%, applicable to foreign companies on the business income instead of the tax rate applicable to domestic companies, aga
