writ of mandamus directing the respondents to grant approval to the petitioner under Section 10(23C)(vi) of the said Act for the Assessment years 1999-2000 to 2001-02. However, we are making it clear that as the assessments for the three years in question are open, the Assessing Officer can certainly go into the question as to whether the conditions stipulated in the third proviso and the 13th proviso to Section 10(23C)(vi) of the said Act have been met and appropriate orders can been passed by .....

passed by the CBDT is set aside and the question of approval was to be re-examined by the CBDT in the light of the Supreme Court decision in the case of American Hotel and Lodging Association Educational Institution v.

ii) approval of the prescribed authority for the purposes of grant of exemption for which the applicant has to move an application in the standardized form in terms of the first proviso to Section 10(23C)(vi).
