Rejection of request of the petitioner for rectification of assessment sought for under Section 84 of the Tamil Nadu Value Added Tax Act, 2006 - rejection of rectification request on the ground that there was no discussion about this in the order - difference of opinion between the parties was that the petitioners claim that one of their products, TANG was existable to taxes at the rate of 4% and thereafter 5%, whereas it is the stand of the respondents that the rates applicable would be 12.5% and thereafter 14%.
HELD THAT:- The petitioner sought rectification under Section 84 that has come to be rejected by the officer on 15.11.2019 on the ground that there was no discussion in the order dated 03.05.2019 and hence no rectifiable error. This conclusion of the appellate authority is clearly contrary to law insofar as the very non-consideration of submissions dated 23.01.2019, would constitute an error apparent on record liable to be rectified under Section 84 of the Act. In light of this, the impugned orders need to be set aside.
The petitioner will appear before the appellate authority on 24.03.2023 at 10.03 a.m. with materials in support of the request of rectification and without anticipating any notice afresh for the hearing scheduled as aforesaid. After hearing the petitioner, orders shall be passed on the Section 84 application within a period of four weeks from the date of personal hearing as fixed aforesaid.
