THE TOTAL OF THESE TWO AMOUNTS WORKS OUT TO RS.16 0 8 50 693/- WHEREAS THE TOTAL ACTUAL RECEIPTS AS PER TDS CERTI FICATES ARE ONLY RS.15 16 83 460/-. B. THE AMOUNT OF RS.11 80 96 054/- CREDITED TO THE PRO FIT & LOSS ACCOUNT COMPRISES OF AMOUNTS RECEIVED AS WELL AS AM OUNTS DUE ON ACCRUAL BASIS FOR WORK DONE. C. THE AO HAS NOT DISPUTED THAT OUT OF TOTAL RECEIPTS OF RS.15 16 83 460/- RS.4 27 54 639/- REPRESENTS ADVA NCES RECEIVED WHICH DO NOT FORM PART OF CURRENT RECEIPTS LIABLE FOR TAX. SIMILARLY THE AO WAS NOT JUSTIFIED IN DEDUCTING RE TENTION MONEY OF RS.83 35 278/- (REFER CHART III ON PAGE 2) FROM CONTRACT RECEIPTS LIABLE FOR TAX SINCE SUCH MONEY HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN RETAINED BY THE CONTRACTEE OUT OF PAYMENTS DUE TO THE APPELLANT AND THEREFORE THE SAME CONSTITUTES THE APPELLANTS CONTRACT RECEIPTS LIABLE FOR TAX.

CONTRACT RECEIPTS AS PER P&L A/C 11 80 96 054 IN VIEW OF THE ABOVE NO CONCLUSION OF SUPPRESSION OF CONTRACT RECEIPTS ARISES. CONSEQUENTLY THE DIFFERENCE OF RS.8 31 955 /- WORKED OUT BY THE AO AND ADDED TO THE APPELLANTS INCOME IS NOT SUSTAINABLE AND HENCE DELETED. 4 5. WE HAVE HEARD THE RIVAL SUBMISSIONS AND HAVE PER USED THE MATERIAL ON RECORD INCLUDING THE ORDERS OF THE TAX AUTHORITIES BELOW. A PERUSAL OF THE IMPUGNED ORDER REVEALS THAT THE CIT(A) WHILE DELETING THE ADDITION HAS RECORDED THE FINDIN G OF FACT THAT THE ASSESSING OFFICER WAS NOT JUSTIFIED IN ADDING RS.4 27 54 639/- BEING ADVANCES RECEIVED FROM CONTRACTEES TO RS.11 80 96 054/- BEING WORK DONE CREDITED TO PROFI T & LOSS ACCOUNT. HE HAS ALSO ASSIGNED THE REASONS AS REPRODUCED ABOVE IN PARA 4 OF THIS ORDER . NO CONTRARY EVIDENCE HAS BEEN BROUGHT ON RECORD BY THE REVENUE TO DISCARD THE REASONING GIVE N BY THE CIT(A) FOR DELETING THE IMPUGNED ADDITION. AFTER CONSIDERING THE TOTALITY OF FACTS THE CIT(A) HAS ALSO GIVEN THE ILLUSTRATIONS OF TAXABLE CONTRACT RECEIPTS AGAINST WHICH WE DO NOT F IND ANY MATERIAL ON RECORD TO BELIE THE SAME.
