(2) The proceeding under sub-section (1) shall be initiated by the Commissioner or the Appellate 2Authority2 or the Appellate Board, as the case may be, by issue of a notice in the prescribed form for giving the dealer an opportunity of being heard. On hearing the dealer, the Commissioner or the Appellate Authority or the Appellate Board as the case may be, shall pass an order not later than one calendar year from the date of initiation of such proceeding, directing the dealer that he shall in addition to the tax payable by him, pay by way of penalty a sum which 2shall not be less than2 three times but shall not exceed 3.5 times of the amount of tax evaded.
(3) If the total tax shown as payable according to the return or returns and paid by a dealer for any period or part thereof is less than eighty per cent of the total tax assessed/reassessed under Section 20 such dealer shall be deemed to have concealed his turnover or aggregate of his purchase prices or to have furnished false particulars of his sales or purchases in his return or returns or to have furnished a false return or returns for the purpose of sub-section (1) unless he proves to the satisfaction of the Commissioner or the Appellate Authority or the Appellate Board , as the case may be, that the concealment of the said turnover or the aggregate of purchase prices or furnishing of particulars of sales or purchases or furnishing of the false return or returns was not due to any fraud or gross negligence on his part.
(4) Subject to such restrictions and conditions and in such manner as may be prescribed, a dealer, on whom a penalty has been imposed under sub-section (2) may opt to pay in lieu of penalty a lump sump amount, which shall be twice the amount of tax evaded, and once the dealer has exercised the option he shall not have any right to challenge the order of penalty in any forum.
