a stand in their reply dated 28.01.2016, the respondent proceeded to reject the petitioner's contention holding that the dealers have not produced proof for disposal of the Wind Mill. 6.In my view, the Assessing Officer has misdirected himself in not properly appreciating the scope of the documents produced by the petitioner.

4. We agree with the above submission of learned counsel appearing for the assessee. At the outset, the view of the Sales Tax Appellate Tribunal based on the decision reported in 7 STC 740 in the case of Tools and Machineries Ltd., Vs.
