TP Adjustment - characterisation carried out by the Ld.TPO of the assessee’s business - HELD THAT:- As submitted that for A.Y. 2010-11, assessee was identically characterised in the TP study which has not been disturbed by the transfer pricing officer therein. Subsequently, assessee has been characterised in different ways in the subsequent assessment years which needs to be verified at the end of Ld.TPO.

TPO is directed to analyse the details so filed by assessee and to consider the international transactions in accordance with various principles laid down by this Tribunal as well as various High Courts on this issue. Needless to say that proper opportunity of being heard is to be granted to assessee.
