WE HAVE HEARD THE RIVAL SUBMISSIONS AND CAREFULL Y PERUSED THE ASSESSMENT ORDER AND THE ORDER OF THE CIT PASSED U/ S 263 OF THE ACT. THE ASSESSMENT WAS REVISED ON DIFFERENT POINTS BUT THE ASSESSEE HAS MAIN GRIEVANCE WITH REGARD TO THE DIRECTIONS OF THE CIT FOR MAKING AN ADDITION WITH RESPECT TO THE CREDITS APPEARING IN THE NAME OF M/S . GHARDA CHEMICALS ITA NO26/V/2011 & CO 6 OF 11 K SUSEELA VJA. 2 LIMITED AND GUJARAT INSECTICIDES LTD. THE LD. COUN SEL FOR THE ASSESSEE HAS SUBMITTED THAT THE ASSESSMENT FOR THE ASSESSMENT YE AR 2005-06 WAS RE- OPENED AND THE VERIFICATION WAS MADE FROM THE AFORE SAID CREDITORS AND IN RESPONSE THEREOF IT WAS INFORMED TO THE ASSESSING OFFICER THAT THERE WERE NO BALANCE DUE BY THE ASSESSEE SINCE THE AMOUNTS WERE WRITTEN OFF IN THE YEAR 2001-02 BY M/S.

RELYING UPON THIS INFORMATIO N THE ASSESSING OFFICER HAS TREATED THE ENTIRE CREDIT AS AN INCOME OF THE A SSESSEE U/S 41(1)(A) OF THE I.T. ACT. AGAINST THE ORDER OF THE A.O.

THE CIT HAS NOT TAKEN A COGNIZANCE OF THE FACTS THAT IN THE ASSESSM ENT YEAR 2005-06 THE ASSESSMENT WAS RE-OPENED AND THE ADDITION OF THE AF ORESAID CREDIT WAS MADE ON ITS CESSATION U/S 41(1)(A) OF THE ACT AGAINST WH ICH THE APPEAL IS PENDING BEFORE THE CIT(A). SINCE THE ISSUE IS SUB-JUDICE I N A.Y. 2005-06 THE ADDITION OF THE SAME CREDIT ON ITS CESSATION CANNOT BE MADE IN THE IMPUGNED ASSESSMENT YEAR. WE THEREFORE OF THE VIEW THAT D IRECTION OF THE CIT REQUIRES A PROPER MODIFICATION. ACCORDINGLY WE MO DIFY THE DIRECTION OF THE CIT AND DIRECT THE A.O. TO EXAMINE THIS ISSUE IN TH E LIGHT OF OUTCOME OF THE FIRST APPEAL PENDING BEFORE THE CIT (A) PERTAINING TO THE ASSESSMENT YEAR 2005-06 AND THEREAFTER ADJUDICATE THE ISSUE IN ACCO RDANCE WITH LAW.
