BEFORE US RELIED ON THE ORDER OF TH E ASSESSING OFFICER WHILE THE LD. A.R. VEHEMENTLY CONTENDED THAT WHEN THE ASSESSEE HAS ALR EADY SURRENDERED A SUM OF ` 15 00 000/- ON ACCOUNT OF WHICH VARIOUS ADDITIONS HAVE BEEN MADE B Y THE ASSESSING OFFICER AMOUNTING TO ` 15 38 140/- THE ASSESSEE COULD HAVE BEEN ALLOWED T ELESCOPING OF THE SAID SUM.

WE ACCORDINGLY DO NOT FIND ANY ILLEGALITY OR INFIRMITY IN THE ORDER OF THE CIT(A) SO FAR IT RELATES TO THE TELESCOPING OF THE SUM OF ` 15 00 000/- IS CONCERNED BUT THE ADDITION MADE BY THE ASSESSING OFFICER OVER AND ABOVE ` 15 00 000/- IN OUR OPINION CANNOT BE DELETED AND TO THAT EXTENT WE SUSTAIN THE ORDER OF THE ASSESSING OFFICE R.
