Validity of reopening of assessment - period of limitation - expiry of issue of notice - Held that:- The petitioner filed a return of income on 21.08.2007. As per the then prevailing proviso to section 143(2), the Assessing Officer could not serve the notice on the assessee after expiry of twelve months from the end of the month in which the return was furnished.

lative philosophy for making such a change, one thing that cannot be denied is that the substitution had to take effect from 01.04.2008. We may record that the Finance Act 2008 received assent of the President on 10.05.2008 and was published in official gazette on the same day. By 10.05.2008 therefore, this provision formed part of the statute and was given effect of 01.04.2008. For two reasons the contention of the petitioner cannot be accepted that such a provision cannot be applied to the pet .....

provision underwent a change by virtue of which such a notice could be served latest by 30.09.2008. The Assessing Officer was, thus, authorized to issue such a notice as per the amended provision. He was not bound by the unamended provision since the same had already been amended long before the final date for serving of notice even as per the unamended provision had expired. This is therefore, not a case where a vested right is being taken away by amendment in the statute. The notice under sect .....

8. The Assessing Officer issued such a notice on 18.09.2008. 3. In this background, a short question that calls for consideration is, was the notice barred by limitation. In other words, the question is, whether the Assessing Officer was bound by the limitation prescribed under the proviso to section 143(2) of the Act which prevailed prior to 01.04.2008 or could he avail of the amended provision by virtue of the Finance Act, 2008 with effect from 01.04.2008. 4.

However, by virtue of amendment by Finance Act, 2008, w.e.f. 1.4.2008, limitation stood extended upto six months from the end of the financial year in which the return was furnished i.e. upto 30.9.2008. 10.

hey neither have the effect of reviving a right of action which is already barred on the date of their coming into operation, nor do they have the effect of extinguishing a right of action subsisting on that date. But a statute may, expressly or impliedly by retrospectively extending limitation, revive a barred claim...." 11.

Virtual Soft [2007] 289 ITR 83(SC) deals with the general principle of an amendment being prospective in the absence of express or implied intention to the contrary.

ejudice, objection of lack of jurisdiction at a belated stage could not be entertained. This aspect will be considered under Question (ii). 11. In case of K.M. Sharma (supra) the facts were very different. The assessee's lands were acquired under the Land Acquisition Act. He received interest on delayed payments of compensation under an award passed by the District Court.

pted by the High Court. In appeal the question that the Supreme Court considered was, whether the amended provision of sub-section (1) of section 150 w.e.f 01.04.1989 could be applied to the assessments which had become time barred before 01.04.1989.
