In case of assessee, there was no assessment u/s 143(3) of I T Act for ay 11-12. There was only intimation us 143(1) from CPC. Under such circumstances who will be the jurisdictional assessing officer for issuing notice u/s 148 in March 2018 ? Whether erstwhile JAO for ay 11-12 or assessing officer having charge over assessee on the day of issuing notice on the basis of income criteria or any other criteria? Please guide.

Thanks for answering a query. Basically my query was whether the erstwhile AO for assessment year under consideration can issue notice u/s 148 or not when in a situation where the jurisdiction on the date of issue of notice is with some different officer. Alternatively, whether only the AO holding charge over the assessee can issue notice u/s 148 and not the earlier AO.
