Power of CESTAT to condone delay in appeal before CST(A), Service Tax

Power of CESTAT to condone delay in appeal before CST(A)

  • Contents

Dear experts

Our client was delayed in filing of appeal before CST(A) by 150 days due to mistake of its employee. It submitted affidavit from proprietor and employee certifying such facts. However, the CST(A) did not condone the appeal being beyond condonable period of 30 days u.s 85 & relied upon SC order in case of Singh Enterprises. There are some judicial precedents where jurisdictional P&H HC as well as other High courts have condoned such delay under writ. However, is CESTAT empowered to condone such delay upon appeal? If yes, kindly cite some precedents.

Brief facts on merits: Appeal was against refund rejection order. Refund was rejected without any notice. Grounds for disallowance taken by AO have already been set aside by CST(A) in other periods where appeal was filed within time. So, our case is strong on facts if not for the delay.

Dear Kasturi sir,

Thanks for your reply. I believe you misunderstood my query. In our case, we are asking CESTAT to condone the delay in filing of appeal before Commissioner Appeals and direct the Commissioner to hear our appeal on merits.

The case law cited by your goodself actually pertains to condonation of delay in filing appeal before CESTAT.

SH.ROHIT GOEL JI,

O.K. I have re-studied your query. I am of the view that nobody/no authority can go beyond the Act. All the courts (including semi-judicial) only explain the laws.I have seen case laws on this very issue in favour of the department.
