PER L.P. SAHU, A.M.:

This appeal filed by the assessee is directed against CIT(A) – 1, Hyderabad’s order dated 03/07/2017 for AY 2009-10 involving proceedings u/s 144 of the Income Tax Act, 1961 ; in short “the Act” on the following grounds:

“ 1) The order of the learned Commissioner of Incometax (Appeals) is erroneous both on facts and in law.

2) The learned Commissioner of Income-tax (Appeals) erred in confirming the addition made by the Assessing Officer of Rs.14,54,673/- without considering the fact that the turnover amounted to Rs.32,54,662/- but was taken by the Assessing Officer at Rs.12,15,180/-

3) The learned CIT (A) ought to have considered the fact that the total deposits made into the bank account were only Rs.19,67,OOO/- and the turn over for the year under consideration was Rs.32,54,662/- and that,therefore, no addition can be made.

4) The learned CIT (A) erred in confirming he disallowance made u/s 80DDB of Rs. 40,000/- and u/s 80C of Rs.90,OOO/-.

5) Any other ground or grounds that may be urged at the time of hearing. “

2. We notice at the outset that assessee’s instant appeals suffer from 59 days delay. To this effect, the assessee filed an affidavit wherein affirming, inter -alia, that at the relevant point of time assessee’s wife and assessee himself fell sick, which caused the impugned delay in filing of the instant appeals. Case law Collector Land Acquisition vs Mst. Katiji & Ors, 1987 AIR 1353 (SC) and University of Delhi Vs. Union of India, Civil Appeal No. 9488 & 9489/2019 dated 17 December, 2019, hold that such a delay; supported by cogent reasons, deserves to be condoned so as to make way for the cause of substantial justice. We accordingly hold that assessee’s impugned delay of 59 days in filing the appeals is neither intentional nor deliberate but due to the circumstances beyond its control. The same stands condoned. Cases are now taken up for adjudication on merits. 

3. Brief facts of the case are that the assessee filed his return of income for the AY 2009-10 on 09/09/2009 declaring total income of Rs. 1,46,757/-. Subsequently, the case was selected for scrutiny under CASS and statutory notice was issued to the assessee on 23/08/2010, which was returned unserved as the assessee was not available in the address given in the return. Thereafter, several notices were issued by the AO to the assessee, but, none of the notices could be served. Finally, a notice on 21/12/2011 was served on the assessee based on the address ascertained from the bank statement. Since there was no compliance to the said notice, the AO passed exparte order u/s 144 of the Act by making the addition of Rs. 13,60,139/- towards unexplained deposit in bank account.
