This is assessee’s appeal for the A.Y 2011-12 against the order of the CIT (A)-7, Hyderabad, dated 7.10.2019.

2. Brief facts of the case are that the assessee, an individual along with six other family members, had sold an immovable property through registered sale deed documentNo.1051/2010 dated 19.04.2010 for an amount of Rs.80.00 lakhs as against the market value fixed by the Stamp Duty Authority at Rs.1,02,05,740/-. Since the value of the property is more than thesale consideration, the AO verified the registered sale deed and found that the difference of stamp duty was paid by the assessee’s group i.e. Vendors. Therefore, he was of the opinion that as perthe provisions of section 50C, the market value of the property is to be adopted as consideration for the purpose of computing at the capital gains. Since the assessee did not file his return ofincome for the year under consideration and has not offered thecapital gains to tax, the AO issued a notice u/s 148 of the Act on 23.3.2018 which was served on the assessee’s wife on 27.03.2013. Subsequently, assessee’s wife appeared before theAO and submitted a letter stating that the assessee has expired on 9.8.2018 and that she does not have any information regarding the said notice.
