Not only the Commissioner of Income Tax who signed the present appeal memo and the Assessing Officer who verified the appeal memo have been less than careful. However to compound matters, we find that the affidavit of Mr. Singh dated 29 June 2015 states that there is nothing on the record that revenue was aware of the dismissal of the appeal for the Assessment Year 2008-09 till 10 June 2015. This is a serious lapse as it is incorrect. As the remark in bold in the present appeal clearl .....

e Tribunal from which no appeals have been filed by revenue. Thus appeals are filed to this Court mechanically, without due application of mind. It was in the aforesaid circumstances that we were constrained to direct that a senior officer of the revenue take notice of the facts recorded in our order dated 29 June 2015 and take steps to ensure that the law is equally applied in all cases, besides ensuring that the officers of the revenue concerned keep themselves engaged in the proceedings befor .....

The affidavit as filed does not deal with the sorry state of affairs in this appeal and in respect of appeal for the Assessment Year 200708. It does not indicate any steps being taken by the revenue to fix responsibilities in respect of the persons responsible for the state of affairs in the present appeal and also for the dismissal of the appeal for the earlier Assessment .....
