It was the contention of the assessee that the asset which did not exist at the time the new law came into force cannot be brought within the ambit of the new law. The Tribunal held that the important date is the date on which the undisclosed comes to the notice of the Department. Further held that no deduction shall be allowed with respect to the undisclosed bank account while computing the additions under the Black Money Act, 2015.
