Revision by High Court
(1) Within ninety days from the date on which the order under sub-section (4), (5) or (7) of section 58 is served, any person who objects to such order or the Deputy Commissioner may prefer a petition to the High Court on the ground that the Appellate Tribunal has either decided erroneously or failed to decide any question of law:
Provided that the High Court may, within a further period of ninety days, admit a petition preferred after the expiration of the first mentioned period of ninety days aforesaid if it is satisfied, that the petitioner had sufficient cause for not preferring the petition within the first mentioned period.
(2) The petition shall be in the prescribed form, shall be verified in the prescribed manner, and shall, where it is preferred by any party other than the Deputy Commissioner, be accompanied by such fee as may be prescribed.
(3) If the High Court, on perusing the petition, considers that there is no sufficient ground for interfering, it may dismiss the petition summarily:
Provided that no petition shall be dismissed unless the petitioner has had a reasonable opportunity of being heard.
(4) (a) If the High Court does not dismiss the petition summarily, it shall, after giving both the parties to the petition a reasonable opportunity of being heard, determine the question of law raised and either reverse, affirm or amend the order against which the petition was preferred or remit the matter to the Appellate Tribunal, with the opinion of the High Court on the question of law raised or pass such order in relation to the matter as the High Court thinks fit.
(b) Where the High Court remits the matter under clause (a) with its opinion on the question of law raised, the Appellate Tribunal shall amend the order passed by it in conformity with such opinion.
(5) Before passing an order under subsection (4), the High Court may, if it considers it necessary so to do, remit the petition to the Appellate Tribunal, and direct it to return the petition with its finding on any specific question or issue.
(6) Notwithstanding that a petition has been preferred under sub-section (1), the tax shall be paid in accordance with the order against which the revision has been preferred.
(7) (a) The petitioner or the respondent may apply for review of any order passed by the High Court under clause (a) of sub-section (4) on the basis of the discovery of new and important facts which after the exercise of due diligence were not within his knowledge or could not be produced by him when the order was made.
(b) The application for review shall be preferred within such time, and in such manner as may be prescribed, and shall, where it is preferred by any party other than the Deputy Commissioner, be accompanied by such fee as may be prescribed.
(8) In respect of every petition or application preferred under sub-section (1), or clause (a) of sub-section (7), respectively, the costs shall be in the discretion of the High Court.
