If the defect is rectified and 139(9) return is filed with in the time allowed in the defect notice, 139(1) return filed in time gets valid. Consequently, 234A interest levied is wrong and against law. No case law on hand to substantiate the above, but a corollary to National Insurance Co Ltd vs. CIT (1994) 72 Taxman 161 (Cal).

If return is filed in response to notice under section 13(9), interest under section 234A is not leviable.
