HOW EVER EVEN AFTER PROPER RE-CONCILIATION WITH THE TDS CERTIFICATES T HE ASSESSEE-FIRM HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO EXPLAIN THE REASONS FOR UNDERSTATEMENT OF ITS GROSS RECEIPTS BY A SUM OF RS.7 60 934/-. THE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ASSESSEE-FIRM HAS ALSO ADMITTED BEFORE THE LEARNED CIT(APPEALS) THAT THE G ROSS RECEIPTS WERE UNDERSTATED TO THE EXTENT OF ACTUAL DIFFERENCE WORK ED OUT IN TABLE 4 OF THE IMPUGNED ORDER.
