2). Firstly, it cannot be said that the default in complying with the requirements of Section 54-F, necessary to claim the benefit thereunder, was due to circumstances beyond the petitioner's control. Section 54-F requires the home to be constructed within a stipulated period. It does not require the home to be constructed on the assessee's other properties, even if he has any. In a given case, an assessee may be granted an extension for a reasonable period to construct his house on his .....
