Per contra, learned counsel for the respondents states that the petitioner vide ITO letter dt. 13th Aug., 2019 was requested to approach the office of Directorate of Income Tax (Systems), for necessary relief.

He states that the petitioner approached the respondent No. 1, for the second time by filing a rectification application dt. 9th Oct., 2019. He states that till date the said application has not been disposed of.
Keeping in view the limited prayer sought in the present writ petition this Court disposes of the same by directing the respondents to dispose of the petitioner’s rectification application dt. 9th Oct., 2019 within six weeks by way of a reasoned order and to make payment of refund if any in accordance with law.
