CITATION:
Section 68- Cash Credit

In this case, the assessee had given the names and addresses of the alleged creditors. It was in the knowledge of the Revenue that the said creditors were income-tax assessees. Their index numbers were in the file of the Revenue. The Revenue, apart from issuing notices under s. 131 at the instance of the assessee, did not pursue the matter further. The Revenue did not examine the source of income of the said alleged creditors to find out whether they were creditworthy or were such who could advance the alleged loans. There was no effort made to pursue the so-called alleged creditors. In those circumstances, the assessee could not do anything further

CITATION:
Reopening u/s 147 without application of mind is not valid

In this situation it was on the AO to peruse the relevant assessment record of AY 2005-06 which forming reason to believe and thus it is safely presumed that the AO initiated reassessment proceedings u/s 147 of the Act and issued notice u/s 148 of the Act without application of mind working in a mechanical manner and thus the same are not sustainable in the facts and on law. Respectfully following the dicta laid down by jurisdictional High Court in the case of CIT vs. G & G Pharma (Supra) we are inclined to hold that the AO issued notice u/s 148 of Act on the wrong and invalid assumption of Jurisdictional and all subsequent proceedings is pursuance thereto can’t be held as sustainable and valid hence, the same deserve to be quashed and we quash the same

CITATION:
Deduction of section-10B, transferring pricing adjustment on account of ECB from parent company

Revenue has not disputed the submission made by the assessee before the CIT (A) that effective rate of interest paid by it in India was 6.62% on
loans. Interest paid by assessee on loans taken from AE abroad was 5%. This was below the rate of interest assessee was paying on loans taken
within India. When internal CUP with unrelated parties is available, in our opinion, it should be given precedence over external CUP Once such raw
gherkins are put into some process which increases its shelf life to six months or more, there indeed happen some irreversible change. Raw
gherkins are changed from its original state to a state where it remains good for human consumption even after six months. Thus the steps as
undertaken by the assessee which included fermentation and which extended the shelf life of raw gherkins, even if we construe as not ‘manufacture’, as commonly understood, it cannot be denied that it resulted in a product which cannot be equated with raw gherkins. The processes undertaken by the assessee had significant effect on the raw nature, converting it to a material capable of withstanding decay for a considerable period of time. In our opinion, in such a situation, it is difficult to say that what was packed by the assessee after the various process was very same as the raw gherkins which it got from its contract farmers
