ORDER

Present appeal is filed by assessee against order dated 28.10.2019 passed by Ld.CIT(A)-10, Bangalore on following grounds of appeal.

2. The assessee is an individual and is proprietrix of M/s.Hydromatic Engineering Company, dealing in pipe fitting, valves and automation products. She filed return of income for AY 2014-15 on 01.10.2014, declaring total income of Rs.16,79,980/-. The case was taken up for a scrutiny. It is submitted that, assessee was regularly filing her return of income and was assessed with its Income Tax Officer, Ward – 7(2)(2), Bangalore.

3. On the contrary, the Ld.CIT.DR submitted that assessee participated in the assessment proceedings and that no prejudice is caused. He took support of provisions of section 292BB of the Act and submitted that the procedural defect gets cured.

4. It is pertinent to note that assessee filed additional evidence before Ld.CIT(A) which was forwarded for the remand report to the file of AO, Ward-7(2)(2) for comments. However, the remand report has been provided by the DCIT, Circle – 5 (2)(1). On query being raised by the bench, the Ld.AR submitted that ITO, Ward – 5 and ITO, Ward – 7 were possessing jurisdiction over assessee since assessee was running her business at pincode – 560002 and residing at pincode – 560027 respectively.

5. In the present case, admittedly, no notice u/s. 143(2) was issued by the AO having jurisdiction over assessee either prior to the assessment proceedings or during the assessment proceedings. We place reliance on the decision of Hon’ble Karnataka High Court in the case of Nittu Vasanth Kumar Mahes vs. ACIT reported in (2019) Taxman 277 (Karnataka) wherein Hon’ble Court took similar view. Hon’ble Court also held that provisions of section 292BB of the Act cannot cure such defect.

6. As we have quashed the assessment order, the issues raised by assessee on merits becomes academic in nature and hence does not require any adjudication at this juncture. In the result, the appeal filed by the assessee stands allowed on the legal issue raised. Order pronounced in the open court on 20th December, 2021.
