(1.)The questions referred for our decision under Section 66 (2) of the Indian Income Tax Act, 1922, hereinafter referred to as the Act are:--
1. Whether the Income Tax Tribunal was justified in law in refusing to entertain the additional ground of appeal urged by the Assessee regarding the correct rate of tax applicable or to be applied for the nine months' income considered in the assessment? 2. Whether the Assessee's income for nine months ended on 31-3-1950 could have been rightly assessed at the rate applicable for twelve months' income? 3. Whether there was any material available on record to support the Tribunal's conclusion that the Assessee's turnover for the year ended 31-3-1950 was Rs. 15,00,000/-.
(2.)The learned counsel on both sides were agreed that question No. 1 need not be answered as the said question is involved in Question No. 2 which was directed by this Court to be referred as it arises out of the order of the Tribunal.
