On an appeal filed by the appellants, Commissioner (Appeals) also upheld the order passed by the original authority. Both the lower authorities while undertaking the fresh proceedings, have not dealt with the claims made by the appellant that the original-in-appeal dated 13.05.2009 had attained finality. 3.

the Commissioner (Appeals) had allowed their appeals. 4. Learned AR would submit that in the second proceedings original authority has found that a portion of the refund claim was time-barred which shows that there was no proper verification of documents. Therefore he submits that the proceedings initiated afresh cannot be found fault with. 5. I have considered the submissions made by both the sides.

ortunately in this case even at the beginning itself, by failing to issue a detailed show-cause notice covering other grounds, the opportunity to refuse portion of refund was lost. The show-cause notice was limited to only one ground and this was covered by the original authority and the Commissioner (Appeals) order dated 13.05.2009.

It is unfortunate that law enforcing/implementing agency chooses to ignore the law and just because assessee became entitled to refund, proceeded to somehow deny refund, without even considering legal options. The decision of the Hon'ble Supreme Court in the case of Triveni Chemicals Ltd. was rightly relied upon by the learned counsel in this regard.

In that case also, the fresh round was started by the Revenue on the ground that question of unjust enrichment was not considered in the initial round and Hon'ble Supreme Court said that once the order attained finality, even on t .....
