Validity of assessment order - reopening of the assessments under section 27 of the TNVAT Act, 2006 - Assessment Orders are barred by law of limitation or not - Violation of principles of natural justice - HELD THAT:- Admittedly, the petitioner has not sent any reply to the Show Cause Notices sent by the respondents which culminated in passing of the impugned assessment orders. The petitioner categorically contends that they never received any Show Cause Notice from the respondents - As seen from the impugned Assessment Orders, no personal hearing has also been afforded to the petitioner. Since the contentions of the petitioner raised in this writ petition have not been considered in the impugned assessment orders and the petitioner has also not been granted personal hearing in the impugned proceedings, necessarily, the impugned assessment orders have to be quashed on the ground of violation of principles of natural justice and the matter has to be remanded back to the first respondent for fresh consideration on merits.
The impugned Assessment Orders all dated 30.11.2022 are hereby quashed and the matters are remanded back to the first respondent for fresh consideration - Petition allowed by way of remand.
