INCOME TAX ACT, 1961

Section 143(3) Section 147

Reassessment framed under section 143(3)/147 without issuance of notice under section 143(2) was invalid.

Reassessment - Validity - Failure of AO to issue notice under section 143(2) -

Assessee challenged validity of assessment framed under section 143(3)/147 on the ground of non-issuance of section 143(2) notice by AO. Held: No copy of notice under section 143(2) was there in the assessment record nor was there any evidence to dispatch any such notice. Issuance of notice under section 143(2) was mandatory in reassessment proceedings and failure to do so, made re-assessment void.
