HIGH RANGE COFFEE CURING PVT. LTD. Vs. STATE OF KARNATAKA
LAWS(SC)-2020-2-9
SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
Decided on February 05,2020

HIGH RANGE COFFEE CURING PVT. LTD. Appellant
VERSUS
STATE OF KARNATAKA Respondents




JUDGEMENT

- (1.)Heard counsel for the parties.
(2.)The opening ground urged by the appellant is that the High Court ought not to have entertained the appeals on merits without condoning the delay in filing of appeals. This argument though attractive at the first blush, does not take the matter any further as we find the delay was only of 71 and 283 days respectively and sufficient explanation has been offered by the respondent(s) which could be condoned in the interest of justice and we order accordingly.
(3.)The core issue raised in these appeals, in our opinion, is no more res integra. It has been answered in the decision of this Court in "Malnad Areca Processing and Marketing Limited vs. Deputy Commissioner of Commercial Taxes (Assessment) and Others", reported in (2008) 11 SCC 536.
