Validity of reassessment proceedings - As the return filed by the assessee on 06.10.2015 is a return filed belatedly u/s 139(4) of the Act. Nothing prevented the learned Assessing Officer to select this return for scrutiny and frame the assessment in accordance with law. When this provision is available with the learned Assessing Officer, where is the need for him to issue reopening notice that too before the end of the assessment year itself. Hence the reopening notice issued u/s 148 of the Act in the instant case is to be declared premature. - AT
