Audit by Tax Authorities - Exercise of jurisdiction under Section 65 of UPGST Act, by way of necessary implication - petitioner already been subjected to the proceedings of adjudication under Section 74 of the U.P.G.S.T Act, 2017 - HELD THAT:- There is no material shown to exist that any earlier audit had been permitted or directed under Section 65 of the Act and insofar as plain reading of the provisions do not suggest any bar in exercise of that power, if the assessee had faced any earlier proceedings under Section 74 of the Act with respect to Input Tax Credit, excess claimed, there is no inherent legal infirmity shown to exist in the audit having been directed, keeping in mind the language of the statute.
As to facts, nothing has been pleaded as may lead this Court to a conclusion that the audit directed is either not permissible or is not warranted, either in view of earlier proceedings suffered by the petitioner under Section 74 of the Act, or otherwise. Plainly facts pleadings to assail the audit (as directed), are missing.
No good ground is made out to offer any interference in exercise of extra ordinary jurisdiction under article 226 of the Constitution as that jurisdiction may be exercised if a legal injury is shown to exist, that too caused contrary to the provisions of law.
