It is a well settled position that section 269SS of the Income-tax Act, 1961 cannot be attracted for undisclosed income.
The Hon’ble Delhi High Court in the case of CIT v. Standard Brands Ltd.  285 ITR 295 (Delhi)(HC) held that when revenue had taken stand that income was undisclosed income in hands of assessee, it could not resort to proceedings under section 269SS read with section 271D of the Act.
