B .A.KHAN,J -
(1.) This appeal is directed against the Writ Court judgment dated 20th August, 1999 passed in OWP no.561/1992, dismissing the appellants writ petition.
(2.) THE appellant had filed the writ petition seeking quashing of letter dated 30th March, 1992 and notices dated 9th April, 1992 and 25th
June, 1992 issued by second respondent herein in exercise of power under
sections 131(i)(d) read with section 55A of the Income Tax Act, 1961
seeking information from appellant with regard to the construction of his
house property and determination of its value.
(3.) APPELLANTS case before the Writ Court was that the action of respondents was incompetent because the Assessing Officer had no power to
make reference to second respondent (Valuation Officer), nor had he any
power to issue notices in question either under section 131(i)(d) or
under section 55A of the Act.
The writ petition was opposed by the revenue justifying the action and claiming that it was covered under both provisions of the
Income Tax Act.;
