Kutchi Dasa Oswal Moto Pariwar Ambama Trust  362 ITR 194 (Guj)(HC) held that Even though Commissioner has power to call for such documents or information from trust as he thinks necessary, yet it does not mean that if activities of trust have not commenced, Commissioner has authority to reject its application for registration on ground that trust failed to convince him about genuineness of activities.
