11. Power to transfer proceedings.
(1) The Commissioner may, by order in writing, transfer any proceedings or class of proceedings under any provision of this Act from any person appointed undersub-section (2) of section 9 to any other person so appointed whether or not such other person has jurisdiction in respect of the area to which such proceedings or class of proceedings relate, and the Commissioner may likewise transfer any such proceedings (including a proceeding already transferred under this section) from any such person to himself.
(2) The person to whom any proceeding is transferred under sub-section (1) shall proceed to dispose it of as if it had been initiated by himself.
(3) The transfer of a proceeding shall not render necessary the reissue of any notice already issued before such transfer and the person to whom the proceeding is transferred may, in his discretion, continue it from the stage at which it was left by the person from whom it was transferred.
For the purposes of this section, "proceedings" in relation to any person whose name is specified in any order issued thereunder, means all proceedings under this Act in respect of any year which may be pending on the date of such order or which may have been completed on or before such date, and includes also such proceedings which may be commenced after the date of such order in respect of any year.
