THIS MISCELLANEOUS APPLICATION HAS BEEN FILED B Y THE REVENUE REQUESTING FOR AMENDMENT OF ORDER DATED 13. 4.2009 OF THE TRIBUNAL IN ITA 1234/MUM/2007.

THE ASSESSING OFFICER ON THE BASIS OF INFORMATION IN THE VDIS DECLARATION REOPENED THE AS SESSMENT FOR AY 1998-99 IN WHICH THE SAID SUM OF RS 19 99 000/- WAS ADDED AS UNDISCLOSED INCOME. THE CIT (A) HAD CONFIRMED THE ADDITION. THE TRIBUNAL HOWEVER NOTED THAT VARIOUS RECEIPTS PERT AINED TO EARLIER YEARS AND THERE WAS NO MATERIAL TO SHOW THAT THESE AMOUNTS HAD BEEN RECEIVED IN ASSESSMENT YEAR 1998-99 OR THE TRANSACT IONS RELATED TO THE SAID YEAR. THE TRIBUNAL THEREFORE DELETED THE AD DITIONS. MRS SUSHMA S KADAM MA 689/M/2009 2 2. THE REVENUE HAS FILED THE MISCELLANEOUS APPLICA TION REQUESTING THE TRIBUNAL TO AMEND THE ORDER SO AS TO INCLUDE THE SAID AMOUNTS IN THE TAXABLE INCOME. THE CASE OF THE REV ENUE IS THAT SINCE THE ASSESSEE HAD NOT PAID ANY TAX UNDER VDIS THERE IS NO OTHER WAY THE AMOUNT COULD BE TAXED. THE CASE OF THE ASSESSE E IS THAT THE AMOUNT PERTAINED TO THE EARLIER YEARS AND SAME COUL D NOT BE TAXED IN THE ASSESSMENT YEAR 1998-99. 3. WE HAVE HEARD BOTH THE PARTIES PERUSED THE REC ORDS AND CONSIDERED THE MATERIAL CAREFULLY. THE TRIBUNAL HA S GIVEN A CLEAR FINDING THAT RECEIPTS AGGREGATING TO 19 99 000/- PE RTAINED TO ASSESSMENT YEARS 1987-88 1988-89 1994-95 1995-96 & 1996-97 AND NO MISTAKE HAS BEEN POINTED OUT BY THE REVENUE IN THE SAID FINDING. THERE IS NO MATERIAL TO SHOW THAT THESE A MOUNTS HAD BEEN RECEIVED IN ASSESSMENT YEAR 1998-99. WE THEREFORE SEE NO APPARENT MISTAKE IN THE ORDER OF THE TRIBUNAL DELETING THE A DDITION. THE AMOUNT CANNOT BE ASSESSED IN ASSESSMENT YEAR 1998-99 ONLY ON THE GROUND THAT VDIS DECLARATION HAD BEEN MADE IN THAT YEAR T HOUGH THE AMOUNTS RECEIVED PERTAINED TO EARLIER YEARS.
