Bot Summary: W.P.(C) 721/2020 and C.M. No. 2094/2020 The petitioner, who appears in person, has preferred this petition to assail the assessment order dated 23.12.2019 passed by the Income Tax Officer, Ward 30(6), New Delhi. Since the petitioner has a statutory remedy to prefer an appeal against the impugned assessment order before the CIT, we are not inclined to entertain the present petition. The submission of the petitioner is that she was issued a notice dated 23.12.2019 requiring the petitioner to appear on 20.01.2020 i.e. today at 12:45 PM to show cause as to why the order imposing penalty on the petitioner under Section 271(1)(c) of the Income Tax Act should not be passed against her. Since the petitioner has preferred this petition and has been present in Court since morning, she has not been able to attend the said hearing fixed by the Income Tax Officer, Ward 30(6), New Delhi. Keeping in view the aforesaid circumstance, we permit the petitioner to respond to the notice dated 23.12.2019 and appear before the Income Tax Officer, Ward 30(6), New Delhi on 05.02.2020 at 12:45 PM.
