It is well settled law of interpretation that the interpretation which renders the provision of law otiose or redundant has to be avoided. Inasmuch as the Commissioner has simpliciter rejected the appellants contention by referring to Para 2(a) without expressing any opinion on the proviso of the said clause to the Notification, we deem it fit to remand the matter for his consideration of the said proviso.
