Madras High Court stays IT penalty order on Actor Vijay


Justice Anita Sumanth of the Madras High Court provided temporary relief to actor Vijay by staying the order of the Income Tax Department imposing a penalty of Rs 1.5 crore on him for not voluntarily disclosing Rs 15 crore in his Income Tax returns for the year 2016-2017.

Actor Vijay challenged the imposition of penalty and sought to quash the order of the IT department as time-barred and therefore invalid. The matter came up before Justice Anita Sumanth who granted stay while admitting a petition from actor Vijay who challenged the penalty imposed by the IT department based on raids conducted at his residence in the year 2020.
The judge agreed that the punitive action was time-barred and granted the interim injunction.
