THE APPELLANT DID NOT FURNISH THE ACCOUNT NUM BER OF SMT. MEHJABIN. THE APPELLANT ALSO EXPRESSED HER INABILITY TO FURNI SH A CONFIRMATION FROM SMT. MEHJABIN THOUGH THE PRINTOUT OF AN EMAIL FROM HER WAS FILED. THE ASSESSING OFFICER HELD THAT SINCE THE APPELLANT HAD FAILED TO ESTABLISH THE CREDITWORTHINESS OF SMT. MEHJABIN THE CLAIM OF REC EIPT OF LOAN OF RS. 6 29 439 FROM SMT. MEHJABIN COULD NOT BE ACCEPTED. 5.9. 5.10.. 5.11 IT IS ALSO A FACT THAT THE CREDIT IN THE BANK STATEMENT HAS BEEN RECEIVED THROUGH BANKING CHANNELS. HOWEVER THE BA NK STATEMENT DOES NOT RECORD THE NAME OR THE BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS OF THE CREDITOR. THE I.T.A. NO. 599/HYD/2015 :- 3 - : APPELLANT HAS ALSO FAILED TO FURNISH THESE DETAILS. THOUGH AN EMAIL PRINTOUT WAS FILED AN EMAIL ALONE CANNOT BE ACCEPTED AS A C ONFIRMATION SINCE THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE EMAIL OR THE IDENTITY OF THE PE RSON SENDING THE EMAIL CANNOT BE ESTABLISHED.

LD.DR HOWEVER SUPPORTED THE ORDER OF AUTHORITIES AND STATED THAT ASSESSEE HAS NOT DISCHARGED THE ONUS OF ESTABL ISHING THE CREDITWORTHINESS. 7. I HAVE CONSIDERED THE RIVAL CONTENTIONS. IT IS A F ACT THAT ASSESSEE HAS NOT FURNISHED ANY CONFIRMATION OF HAVING RECEIVED MONEY FROM THE SAID SMT. MEHJABIN. HOWEVER LD.CIT(A ) IN LATER YEAR HAVE ACCEPTED THE CREDIT FROM THE SAME PERSON. T HE EVIDENCE FURNISHED IN THAT YEAR COULD NOT BE VERIFIED BY ME. REVENUE COULD NOT COME IN APPEAL IF NOT ACCEPTED ON THE REASON O F TAX EFFECT. HOWEVER CONSIDERING THE FACT THAT LD.CIT(A) HAS ACCEP TED THE CREDIT FROM THE SAME PERSON IN LATER YEAR. I AM OF THE OPINION THAT ASSESSEE SHOULD BE GIVEN ONE MORE OPPORTUNITY TO FUR NISH NECESSARY CONFIRMATION FROM THE PERSON ESTABLISHING ID ENTITY CREDITWORTHINESS AND IF AMOUNT IS REPAID THE DETAILS OF REPAYMENT OF THE SAID AMOUNT TO HER SO AS TO DISCHARGE THE ONUS P LACED ON ASSESSEE THAT THIS AMOUNT IS A GENUINE CREDIT.
