(ii) Where any sum paid or payable was not liable for deduction of tax at source in the case of a deductor on the basis of any order passed by the jurisdictional High Court, and as a result, he did not deduct tax at source in relation to such sum, and subsequently, in consequence of any retrospective amendment of law or a decision of the Supreme Court of India or a decision of a Larger Bench of the jurisdictional High Court (which was not challenged before the Supreme Court and has become final) in any proceedings, as the case may be, tax was held to be deductible or the tax deducted by the deductor during such financial year was found to be less than the tax deductible on such sums paid or payable.

3. Even if the interest u/s 201(1A) (i) has already been paid by the deductor, the same can be considered for waiver, subject to the conditions above and a refund may be given to the deductor. if waiver is ordered.

4. The Chief Commissioner of Income-tax or Director General of Income-tax examining an application for waiver of interest under this Order shall pass a speaking order after providing adequate opportunity of being heard to the applicant.

5. The Board reserves the power to examine any grievance arising out of an order passed or not passed by Chief Commissioner of Income-tax or Director General of Income-tax, as the case may be, and issue suitable directions to these authorities for proper implementation of this Order. However, no review of or appeal against the orders passed on merits by such authorities would be entertained by the Board.
