"The IT department's complaint was based on a notice of re-assessment. The IT department's re-assessment proceedings abated on December 31, 2019. No order of assessment or demand was passed. The complaint is there non-est in law. We will bring this fact to the notice of the trial court and move the Madras High Court against the order of the trial court," read a statement by advocate NRR Arun Natarajan on behalf of Karti and his wife.
"No cash was received in the sale transaction. The entire proceeds have been accounted for and reflected in the books of account and return filed," the statement added.
