The petition was relating to Delhi High Court order refusing relief to them in reopening of their tax assessment for 2011-12.
The bench comprising Justices A K Sikri and S A Abdul Nazeer said they are fixing the final arguments for December 4 and added as the respondent from income tax department has put in an appearance they are not issuing any notice.
