According to section 148A(d) of the Act, the order under the said section should be passed within one month from the end of the month in which the response of the assessee is received against the Notice issued under section 148A(b) of the Act. In the event there is no order stating that it’s a fit case for issuance of Notice under section 148 of the Act, It can be presumed that the response of the assessee is accepted.
