(RESPONDENT) APPELLANT BY: SHRI BANDISH SOPARKAR AR RESPONDENT BY: SHRI S. K. MEENA SR. DR O R D E R PER SHRI A. K. GARODIA AM:- THIS IS ASSESSEES APPEAL DIRECTED AGAINST THE ORD ER OF LD. CIT(A) IV BARODA DATED 03.09.2009 FOR THE ASSESSMENT YEAR 199 8-99. THE GROUNDS RAISED BY THE ASSESSEE ARE AS UNDER: 1. LEARNED CIT (A) HAS ERRED IN LAW AND ON FACTS IN CONFIRMING THE PENALTY IMPOSED U/S 271 (1) (C) OF T HE ACT BY AO OF RS. 2 02 500/- ON ADDITION MADE ON SUBSTANTIVE BAS IS OF NOTIONAL LONG TERM CAPITAL GAINS BY APPLYING PROVISIONS OF S ECTION 45 (3) OF THE ACT. THE ADDITION BEING WITHOUT ANY MERITS AND JUSTIFICATION IS PENDING FOR ADJUDICATION BEFORE THE HON'BLE ITAT. B OTH THE LOWER AUTHORITIES HAVE FAILED TO APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT THE APPELLANT HAS NEITHER FURNISHED INACCURATE PARTICULARS NOR CONCEA LED ANY INCOME. THE PENALTY LEVIED BEING WITHOUT ANY MERITS AND JUS TIFICATION REQUIRES TO BE QUASHED. I.T.A.NO.3119 /AHD/2009 2 THE APPELLANT CRAVES LEAVE TO ADD AMEND ALTER ED IT DELETE MODIFY OR CHANGE ALL OR ANY OF THE GROUNDS OF APPEAL AT THE T IME OF OR BEFORE THE HEARING OF THE APPEAL. 2. IT IS SUBMITTED BY THE LD. A.R. THAT IN QUANTUM PROCEEDINGS THE TRIBUNAL HAS RESTORED BACK THE MATTER TO THE FILE O F LD. CIT(A) FOR A FRESH DECISION AND HE SUBMITTED A COPY OF THE TRIBUNAL OR DER IN I.T.A. NO. 1801/AJHD/2006 DATED 25.03.2010. IT IS SUBMITTED B Y HIM THAT SINCE THE ISSUE REGARDING QUANTUM ADDITION HAS BEEN SET ASIDE BY THE TRIBUNAL AND RESTORED TO THE FILE OF LD. CIT(A) THE PENALTY ISS UE SHOULD ALSO BE RESTORED BACK TO THE FILE OF LD. CIT(A) FOR A FRESH DECISION . 3. LD. D.R. OF THE REVENUE SUPPORTED THE ORDERS OF AUTHORITIES BELOW. 4. WE HAVE CONSIDERED THE RIVAL SUBMISSIONS PERUSE D THE MATERIAL ON RECORD AND HAVE GONE THROUGH THE ORDERS OF AUTHORIT IES BELOW. WE FIND THAT THE PENALTY HAS BEEN IMPOSED BY THE A.O. ON THE ALL EGED CONCEALED INCOME OF RS.6.75 LACS. IN QUANTUM PROCEEDINGS THIS VERY ISSUE WAS BEFORE THE TRIBUNAL REGARDING THE ADDITION MADE BY THE A.O. OF RS.6.75 LACS. IN QUANTUM PROCEEDINGS THE TRIBUNAL HAS RESTORED BACK THE MATER TO THE FILE OF THE CIT(A) FOR A FRESH DECISION IN ACCORDANCE WITH LAW. UNDER THIS FACTUAL POSITION WE FEEL THAT THE PENALTY MATTER SHOULD AL SO GO BACK TO THE FILE OF LD. CIT(A) FOR A FRESH DECISION EITHER SIMULTANEOUSLY W ITH THE DECISION IN QUANTUM PROCEEDINGS OR IN THE LIGHT OF SUCH DECISIO N IN QUANTUM PROCEEDINGS IF LD. CIT(A) HAS ALREADY DISPOSED OFF THE MATTER I N QUANTUM PROCEEDINGS AS PER THE DIRECTIONS OF THE TRIBUNAL. WE THEREFORE SET AIDE THE ORDER OF LD. CIT(A) AND RESTORE THE MATTER BACK TO HIS FILE FOR A FRESH DECISION. IF NO ORDER HAS BEEN PASSED BY LD. CIT(A) IN QUANTUM PRO CEEDINGS AS PER THE DIRECTIONS OF THE TRIBUNAL IN ITS ORDER DATED 25.03 .2010 THEN HE SHOULD DECIDE BOTH THE ISSUES I.E. QUANTUM ADDITION AND PENALTY T OGETHER AND IF HE HAS ALREADY DECIDED THE ISSUE IN QUANTUM PROCEEDINGS AS PER THE TRIBUNAL I.T.A.NO.3119 /AHD/2009 3 DIRECTION THEN HE SHOULD DECIDE THE PENALTY ISSUE A FRESH IN THE LIGHT OF HIS DECISION IN QUANTUM PROCEEDINGS. NEEDLESS TO SAY HE SHOULD PASS NECESSARY ORDERS AS PER LAW AFTER PROVIDING ADEQUATE OPPORTUN ITY OF BEING HEARD TO BOTH SIDES. 5. IN THE RESULT APPEAL OF THE ASSESSEE STANDS ALL OWED FOR STATISTICAL PURPOSES. 6. ORDER PRONOUNCED IN THE OPEN COURT ON 29 TH JULY 2011. SD./- SD./- (MUKUL KUMAR SHRAWAT) (A. K.
