ARJUN LAL SAINI AM: THE CAPTIONED THREE APPEALS FILED BY THE ASSESSEE PERTAINING TO ASSESSMENT YEARS2009-10 2010-11 & 2011-12 RESPECTIVELYARE DIRECTED AGAINST THE ORDER PASSED BY THE LD COMMISSIONER OF INCOME TAX (APPEALS)- SILIGURI WHICH IN TURN ARISE OUT OF ASSESSMENT ORDERS PASSED BY THE ASSESSING OFFICER U/S 143(3)/147 OF THE INCOME TAX ACT 1961 (HEREINAFTER REFERRED TO AS THE ACT). 2. SINCE THESE THREE APPEALS RELATE TO THE SAME ASSESSEE DIFFERENT ASSESSMENT YEARS IDENTICAL ISSUES ARE INVOLVED THEREFORE THESE HAVE BEEN CLUBBED AND HEARD TOGETHER AND A CONSOLIDATED ORDER IS BEING PASSED FOR THE SAME OF CONVENIENCE AND BREVITY. SRI ISHAN AGARWAL ITA NO.483 484 & 485/KOL/2015 A.Y: 2009-10 2010-11 & 2011-12 PAGE | 2 3. AT THE OUTSET THE LD. COUNSEL FOR THE ASSESSEE HAS SUBMITTED BEFORE US THAT IN THESE THREE APPEALS THE MAIN ISSUE INVOLVED WAS THAT DURING THE COURSE OF INVESTIGATION CARRIED OUT BY ITO(INTELLIGENCE& CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION) SILIGURI IT WAS FOUND THAT THE ASSESSEE MAINTAINS ONE ACCOUNT NO.020801536166 WITH ICICI BANK SILIGURI WHICH WAS NOT DISCLOSED TO THE INCOME TAX DEPARTMENT. DURING THE COURSE OF ASSESSMENT PROCEEDINGS THE ASSESSEE SUBMITTED THAT HE MAINTAINS TWO OTHER ACCOUNTS IN THE SAME BANK WHICH ARE ALSO NOT DISCLOSED TO THE INCOME TAX DEPARTMENT. THE ASSESSEE SUBMITTED A CONSOLIDATED STATEMENT OF ALL THESE ACCOUNTS TO THE AO. THE AO ADDED THE PROFITS ON THE UNDISCLOSED TURNOVER (THAT IS THE CONSOLIDATED TOTAL DEPOSITS MADE IN THE THREE UNDISCLOSED BANK ACCOUNT) AT THE GROSS PROFIT RATES DECLARED BY THE ASSESSEE ON HIS DISCLOSED TURNOVER. THE PROFIT FOR A.Y. 2009-10 WAS CALCULATED @ 4.69% FOR A.Y. 2010-11 @ 4.74% AND FOR A.Y. 2011-12 @ 6.45%. IN ADDITION TO THIS THE AO ADDED THE PEAKS OF THE UNDISCLOSED ACCOUNTS AS RS.7 29 925/- FOR A.Y. 2009-10 RS.17 21 784/- FOR 2010-11 AND RS.28 92 939/- FOR A.Y. 2011-12. DURING THE COURSE OF APPELLATE PROCEEDINGS THE ASSESSEE SUBMITTED THAT THE PEAK OF UNDISCLOSED BANK ACCOUNTS SHOULD NOT BE ADDED AS THE DISCLOSED CASH AND STOCK DECLARED IN BALANCE SHEET WERE UTILIZED FOR THIS UNDISCLOSED BUSINESS. THE ASSESSEE ALSO SUBMITTED BEFORE THE CIT(A) THAT INSTEAD OF GROSS PROFIT NET PROFIT SHOULD HAVE BEEN APPLIED FOR CALCULATING THE INCOME FROM THE UNDISCLOSED BUSINESS. THE CIT(A) HELD THAT THE AO HAD CALCULATED THE PEAKS OF UNDISCLOSED ACCOUNTS BY SETTING OFF THE PEAKS OF EARLIER YEARS. HOWEVER THE PROFITS OF EARLIER YEARS AND CURRENT YEAR FROM THIS UNDISCLOSED BUSINESS HAVE NOT BEEN CONSIDERED IN SRI ISHAN AGARWAL ITA NO.483 484 & 485/KOL/2015 A.Y: 2009-10 2010-11 & 2011-12 PAGE | 3 CALCULATION OF THE PEAK OF CURRENT YEAR. ONCE THE INCOME IS COMPUTED BY APPLYING THE GP OF THE DISCLOSED BUSINESS TO THE UNDISCLOSED BUSINESS THE CASH IS AVAILABLE WHICH HAS TO BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT FOR COMPUTING THE PEAK OF CURRENT YEAR. THEREFORE THE LD. CIT(A) ALLOWED THE APPEAL OF THE ASSESSEE BY ADJUSTING THE GROSS PROFIT OF THE CURRENT YEAR AND EARLIER YEARS TO THE PEAK OF CURRENT YEAR AND DIRECTED THE AO TO TAKE THE PEAKS OF THE UNDISCLOSED ACCOUNTS AS COMPUTED BY THE LD. CIT(A) FOR A.Y.2009-10 AT RS.1 46 144 FOR A.Y. 2010-11 AT RS.6 91 713/- AND FOR A.Y.2011-12 AT RS.16 30 768/-. 4. WE HAVE HEARD BOTH THE PARTIES AND PERUSED THE MATERIALS AVAILABLE ON RECORD. BEFORE US THE LD. COUNSEL FOR THE ASSESSEE SUBMITTED THAT LD. CIT(A) HAS PASSED A REASONED ORDER AFTER ADJUSTING THE PROFIT OF THE CURRENT YEAR AND EARLIER YEARS TO THE PEAK OF CURRENT YEAR AND THEREFORE COUNSEL STATED BEFORE US THE ASSESSEE DOES NOT HAVE ANY OBJECTION IN RESPECT TO THE DIRECTION GIVEN BY THE LD. CIT(A) TO THE AO. THE LD. DR FOR THE REVENUE HAS ALSO FIRMLY AGREED WITH THE SUBMISSION OF THE LD. COUNSEL FOR THE ASSESSEE. HENCE THE LD COUNSEL FOR THE ASSESSEE AND THE LD DR FOR THE REVENUE BOTH HAVE AGREED BEFORE US THAT LD. CIT(A) HAS PASSED THE REASONED ORDER AND THE SAME SHOULD BE CONFIRMED. WE HAVE HEARD BOTH THE PARTIES AND PERUSED THE MATERIAL AVAILABLE ON RECORD WE ARE OF THE VIEW THAT LD. CIT(A) RIGHTLY CONCLUDED IN HIS FINDINGS AND PASSED AN APPROPRIATE ORDER AFTER ADJUSTING THE PROFIT OF THE CURRENT YEAR AND EARLIER YEARS TO THE PEAK OF CURRENT YEAR AND DIRECTED THE AO TO TAKE THE SRI ISHAN AGARWAL ITA NO.483 484 & 485/KOL/2015 A.Y: 2009-10 2010-11 & 2011-12 PAGE | 4 PEAKS OF THE UNDISCLOSED ACCOUNTS AS CALCULATED BY LD.
