  1. Adv Karthikswami (Bangalore) says:

    A fine distinction has been made in this order. The Tribunal by this order settled the position that what is not material for the purpose of capitalization of interest and what does exactly.
    This clarified that once interest bearing funds are borrowed for whatever purpose, but used for the purpose of asset or in creating an asset other than stock in trade, capitalization of interest is triggered from the date of use or utilization till earlier of asset put to use or repayment of such borrowed fund with non interest bearing funds or capital.
