Case Law: CIT vs. Reliance Industries Ltd (Supreme Court)

Condonation of abnormal delay of 1371 days in removing office objections: High Court refused to condone delay and held that Dept must “set its own house in order by sacking and removing the delinquent and negligent officials or penalising them otherwise so as to subserve larger public interest”. The Supreme Court reversed this holding High Court ought to have condoned the delay and not dismissed the appeal. Dept to pay costs of Rs. 1 lakh (from taxpayers’ funds) for condonation of delay

No doubt, there is a long delay in removing the objections, we are of the opinion that in a case like this the High Court should have condoned the delay in removing the office objections and heard the matter on merits
