Database of recent & important judgements: Top-notch and busy professionals know that the vital ingredient to success is to be aware of the latest judgements and to be able to retrieve it, when required. The deluge of judgements from the Courts and the Tribunal is making this task more and more difficult. This is creating a sense of insecurity amongst professionals. To assist our professional brethren, we have created a database where one can search for judgements on the basis of Court, Coram, Counsel, Catch Words, Section etc. This is still WIP and there may be several bugs in the system. If you spot any, do report it at editor@itatonline.info. Also, if you have any important judgements to share, do send it to our editorial team at editor@itatonline.info

CITATION:

Where the High Courts had held in a number of cases that a charitable trust receiving shares of a company by way of donation did not forfeit exemption u/s 11 and the department had not filed appeals against those judgements and the question arose whether it was permissible for the department to challenge the same in the assessee’s case, HELD:

While merely because in some cases revenue has not preferred an appeal that does not operate as a bar for the revenue to prefer an appeal in another case where there is just cause for doing so or it is in public interest to do so or for a pronouncement by the higher court when divergent views are expressed by the different High Courts, this is NOT SO in a case where the fact situation in all the assessment years is the same. Where the fact situation is the same, the revenue cannot prefer an appeal if they have not done so in the other cases.

Note: The principle in C.K. Gagadharan vs. CIT 304 ITR 61 (SC) was applied.
