Aggrieved by the findings of the Ld. CIT(A), assessee preferred this appeal initially challenging the assessment order passed under section 147/144 of the Act on the ground that it was bad under law for non-compliance with the requirement under section 148 of the Act in respect of proper service of notice, and also the observations of the Ld. CIT(A) that the assessee was not interested in prosecuting the appeal. Subsequently assessee filed additional grounds of appeal, pleading that no notice under section 143(2) of the Act was issued and therefore, the assessment cannot be sustained.
