Ans. : It seems the reason given by the Assessing Officer is correct, as the Assessee is filling Return of income under presumptive taxation i.e. u/s.44AD i.e. 8% of the total turnover. If the amount is credited in Bank which is more than the turnover the recording of reasons may be correct . If the asseessee is able to explain the credit in the bank is not of the turnover it may be loan etc , the Assessing Officer may drop the reassessment proceedings
