An Assessee has got mail from Income Tax that your outstanding demand is being adjusted with refund. His outstanding demand is for AY 2008-09 for which he had filed paper return. He has not got intimation U/S 143(1) for the AY 2008-09 till date. So, he can not understand why demand has been raised for the said year. He has filed ITR for AY 2014-15 in which he claimed refund and his refund is determind. Now, the Assessee is confused that whether he will pay outstanding demand or wait for further intimation. Because it is not clear that why demand has been raised.

I think, now a day, many Assessee is facing same problem. Please suggest. 

Thanks in advance.
