(3) On receipt of any such appeal, the appellate authority shall, after giving the parties to the appeal a reasonable opportunity of being heard and after making such inquiry as it deems proper, make such order as it may think fit, confirming, modifying or reversing the order appealed against or may send back the case with such direction as it may think fit for a fresh order after taking additional evidence, if necessary.
(4) Every appeal shall be preferred on payment of such fees, not exceeding twenty five Taka, as may be prescribed.
(5) The Government may, on its own motion or otherwise, call for and examine the record of any proceeding (including a proceeding in appeal) in which any decision or order has been made, for the purpose of satisfying itself as to the correctness, legality or propriety of such decision or order and may pass such order thereon as it may think fit:
Provided that no decision or order shall be varied under this sub section so as to prejudicially affect any person unless such parson has been given a reasonable opportunity of showing cause against the proposed action.
