Hence, the Prescribed Authority while concluding the assessment through best judgment is empowered to make addition of the suppressed turnover equal to one time as now made for the month of September, 2013. Hence, he submits that no interference of this Court is warranted in the facts and circumstances of the case. 8. We have carefully considered the rival submissions of the learned counsel .....

Only on this point, we remand the matter to the Prescribed Authority to redetermine the penalty levied under Section 72(2) of the Act. 12.
