    CITs(A), NaFAC, send Notices of Hearing almost every three months for the same Appel; however, even after submission of four Written Submissions on four occasions, none is passing the Order. Why Notices are coming again and again is also a mystery. They do not give Virtual Hearing as well. They just direct uploading of WS. In one virtual Hearing, the CIT(A) did not switch on her room light and informed me on my asking that they are not supposed to make their face visible !!! Under which law is the position, is also a mystery. All starnge happenings.
