The judge had on November 13 granted a similar relief to them for the 2009-10 assessment year. He noted on Tuesday that the court had quashed the reopening proceedings related to the 2009-10 assessment year with identical facts and said the petitioners had made out a prima facie case to set aside proceedings in the present case.
