Dear Nitin,
Experts will not entertain your query unless and until there is any legal issue.
The above query of yours appears to be an academic query.

Liability of tax prevails over all other liability. But bank can go a head as even if the property is sold liability will not finished.

Sales Tax authority is not secured creditor; whereas bank would be secured creditor. Bank can proceed under SARFAESI Act and if there was surplus after settling the dues of the mortgagor, such balance can be paid by bank towards tax dues.

Dear Nitin,

It is quite unfair on your part. You raised the query earlier at


and got the reply. If you have really followed what has been replied there, you could not have raised the current query at all.

Instead of sticking to the same thread for your supplementary queries, why do you open a fresh thread?
