Commissioner Of Wealth Tax vs. R.S. Seth Ghisalal Modi Family Trust

Sections 256, WT 27(1)

P.D. Mulye & R.K. Varma, JJ.

Misc. Civil Case No. 63 of 1986

29th August, 1986

Counsel Appeared

R.C. Mukati, for the Petitioner : None, for the Respondent


R.C. Mukati, counsel for the petitioner, heard on admission.

2. The applicant, who is the CWT, Bhopal, has filed this review petition against an order dt. 16th July, 1985, passed in CWT vs. R.S. Seth Ghisalal Modi Family Trust (MCC No. 312 of 1984 : See Appendix on p. 531 infra) whereby the application filed by the petitioner under s. 27(3) of the WT Act, 1957, was dismissed in motion hearing by declining to call upon the Tribunal to make a reference as prayed for therein.

The learned counsel for the petitioner relying upon the decision in K. Ahamad vs. CIT (1974) 96 ITR 29 (Ker) : TC55R.970, which is a Full Bench decision of the Kerala High Court, submitted that this Court under its inherent powers can review the said order as, according to the learned counsel, this Court has wrongly relied on the decision in CWT vs. Smt. Tarabai Kanakmal (1982) 31 CTR (MP) 297 : (1983) 140 ITR 374 (MP) : TC65R.1046 which is a Full Bench decision of this Court.

The learned counsel for the petitioner, therefore, submitted that as this authority has been wrongly applied while deciding that case, this Court should review its earlier order. However, we are unable to agree with this submission as the authority of the Kerala High Court cited by the learned counsel for the petitioner is distinguishable and even assuming, as was submitted, that we have referred to a wrong decision, in our opinion, that by itself is not a valid ground to review the order passed earlier.

The application is, therefore, dismissed summarily.
