THE FACTS OF THE CASE ARE THAT THE ASSESSEE HAD LET OUT ITS FACTORY BUILDING AT A MONTHLY RENT OF ` 1 LAKH. THE ASSESSEE OFFERED THE INCOME FROM RENT OF THE FACTORY BUILDING UNDER THE HEAD I NCOME FROM BUSINESS. THE ASSESSING OFFICER COMPUTED THE SAME UNDER THE HEAD INCOME FROM HOUSE PROPERTY. ON APPEAL LEARNED C IT(A) ACCEPTED THE ASSESSEES CONTENTION AND DIRECTED THAT THE INCOME FROM RENT SHOULD BE ASSESSED UNDER THE HEAD INCOME FROM BUSINESS. HOWEVER ON FURTHER APPEAL BY THE DEPARTMENT THE ITAT REVERSED THE ORDER OF THE CIT(A) AND RESTORED THAT OF THE ASSESSING OFFICER.
