Zero added to Maths

Bakhshali Manuscript

Mathematics ����

Indian mathematics emerged in ~1200 BCE with mantras from the early Vedic period invoking powers of ten
from a hundred all the way up to a trillion, and providing evidence of the use of arithmetic operations.

Indian m~thematicians such as Aryabhata, Baudhanya, Bhaskara, Brahmagupta, Madhava, Pingala,
Varahamihira, etc. made tremendous contributions to the study of the concept of zero as a number, negative
numbers, arithmetic, and algebra.

It was India who gifted the world the concept of Zero and other advanced mathematical concepts including
trigonometry which Indian astronomers used to calculate the relative distances between the Earth and the
Moon and the Earth and the Sun. These mathematical concepts were transmitted to the Middle East, China,
and Europe and led to further developments that now form the foundations of many advancements in areas of

0mathematics.

monetary limits as it may deem fit, for the purpose of regulating filing of appeal or application for reference by any Income-
tax authority under the provisions of this Chapter.

2. Where, in pursuance of the orders, instructions or directions issued under sub-section (1), an Income-tax authority has not
filed any appeal or application for reference on any issue in the case of an assessee for any assessment year, it shall not
preclude such authority from filing an appeal or application for reference on the same issue in the case of–

a) The same assessee for any other assessment year; or

b) Any other assessee for the same or any other assessment year.

3. Notwithstanding that no appeal or application for reference has been filed by an Income-tax authority pursuant to the orders
or instructions or directions issued under sub-section (1), it shall not be lawful for an assessee, being a party in any appeal
or reference, to contend that the Income-tax authority has acquiesced in the decision on the disputed issue by not filing an
appeal or application for reference in any case.

4. The Appellate Tribunal or Court, hearing such appeal or reference, shall have regard to the orders, instructions or directions
issued under sub-section (1) and the circumstances under which such appeal or application for reference was filed or not
