If, in the course of any proceedings in connection with the assessment under section 10 or section 11, the Income-tax Officer is satisfied that any assessee-

(b) has, without reasonable cause, failed to furnish an estimate of the hotel-receipts tax payable in advance by him in accordance with the provisions of section 14, he may direct that the assessee shall, in addition to the hotel-receipts tax payable by him, pay by way of penalty a sum-

(i) which, in the case referred to in clause (a), shall not be less than ten per cent. but shall not exceed one and a half times the amount by which the hotel-receipts tax paid in advance during the financial year immediately preceding the assessment year, falls short of eighty-five per cent. of the hotel-receipts tax chargeable under the provisions of this Act;

(ii) which, in the case referred to in clause (b), shall not be less than ten per cent. but shall not exceed one and a half times of eighty-five per cent. of the hotel-receipts tax chargeable under the provisions of this Act.
