As such, it can be safely held that, during the relevant period, there were no powers or jurisdiction with the Commissioner to direct the Assistant Commissioner to challenge the order passed by him before the Commissioner (Appeals).

the lower authority to file an appeal before the Commissioner (Appeals) by drawing our attention to the provisions of Section 84 of the Finance Act, 1994, as they were on the Statute book.
