(3.)The High court, on a detailed consideration of the facts and circumstances of the case, held that the tribunal was right in holding that the case was not one to which the provisions of sec. 271(1)(c) of the Income-tax Act, 1961, corresponding to sec. 28(1)(c) of the old Act apply inasmuch as the Income-tax Officer had not recorded any finding or brought any material on record within a period of 4 years to show that it was a case of concealment. The High court agreed with the findings recorded by the tribunal that the assessment was clearly time-barred.
