Process of issuing entry tax deferment certificate is invalid


Punjab & Haryana High Court has held in M/s Hemco Ispat ltd vs State of Punjab CWP no. 3578 of 2013 that the process of issuing entry tax deferment certificate having validity of limited period is not warranted under the orders of this Court passed in CWP No.15378 of 2008 titled “M/s Bhushan Power and Steel Limited Vs. State of Punjab etc.
