"1. Whether, on the facts and in the circumstances of the case, the Tribunal was right in holding that there was no mistake apparent from the record regarding the allowance of Rs. 61,163 as wealth-tax and that accordingly the order of rectification passed by the Income-tax Officer in respect thereof was not justified in law ? Whether, on the facts and in the circumstances of the case, the Tribunal was right in holding that the omission to charge interest under Section 18A(7) of the Income-tax Act could not be rectified under Section 154 of the Income-tax Act, 1961, and in deleting the charge of Rs. 7,173.63 made by the Income-tax Officer ?"
