    The court observed that the Income Tax Department had the powers too re-open tax proceedings and that the petitioners can approach the IT department with their grievances.

    The IT department had accused Rahul Gandhi of concealing income in the years 2011-12 by not disclosing that he was a director in Young Indian Private Limited. Sonia Gandhi had moved the Delhi HC challenging the re-opening of their assessments by the Income-Tax Department regarding the Young-Indian- National Herald Transactions.
