A Ltd has been issued a notice by the sales tax dept for arrears of sales tax liability from the year 2004-05. Interest has been charged u/s 36(3)(a)and 36(3)(b)and 36(4A. Interest liability is twice the amount of tax liabilty. Is this possible???? Can a relief be claimed under any section??????

But in your caes, I have some doubts. You may mail me the details alongwith the text of section 36 of the Act at following ID
