Assessment of turnover not disclosed under compounding provisions :
(1) Where for any reason, any part of the turnover of business of a dealer who has opted to pay tax under sub-section 4 of section 3 or section 6 or section 8 has escaped assessment from the tax, the assessing authority may, at any time within a period of five years from the date of order of the assessment by the assessing authority, determine to the best of its judgement the turnover which has escaped assessment and re-assess the tax payable on the total turnover including the turnover already assessed under the said section.
(2) Before making the re-assessment under sub-section (1), the assessing authority may make such enquiry as it may consider necessary and give the dealer concerned a reasonable opportunity to show cause against such re-assessment.
(3) The amount of tax already paid by the dealer concerned in pursuance of the option to compound under sub-section 4 of section 3 or section 6 or section 8 shall be adjusted towards the amount of tax due as the result of re-assessment under sub-section (1).
(4) The provisions of sub-sections (3) to (8) of section 27 shall, as far as may be, apply to reassessment under sub-section (1) as they apply to the reassessment of escaped turnover under sub-section (1) of section 27.
