CITATION:

Division Bench judgement that Court has no power to condone delay in excise appeals overruled

In Shruti Colorants a Division Bench held that where there was a delay in filing Appeals u/s 35G of the Central Excise Act (= s. 260A of the IT Act), the Court had no power to condone the delay by taking recourse to s. 5 of the Limitation Act.

This view is incorrect because by virtue of s. 29(2) of the Limitation Act, where a statute is silent, the provisions of s. 5 of the Limitation Act applies and the Court has power to condone delay.

Accordingly, Shruti Colorants is overruled.
