Unexplained Cash withdrawn out of bank account - Gap between withdrawal and deposit of the cash - withdrawn and deposit of cash with a gap of 70 days - HELD THAT:- The withdrawn and deposit of cash with a gap of 70 days which was considered by the ld. AO as seven months. The ld. Counsel clearly stated that the sufficient cash was withdrawn in same bank account and after part utilization of the same; the amount was deposited in same HDFC Bank account. Appellate authority without considering the proper fact and submission of the assessee had passed the order ex parte. CIT(A) was failed to dispose the appeal on merits and has not contended the explanation of the assessee.
As stated in the submission that the assessee was not able to present before the CIT(A) due to the fact that the appellant expired on 23.10.2020 thereafter her husband also expired on 03.11.2020. The copy of the death-certificate of the assessee and her husband are being enclosed - In these circumstances here the genuine cause for non-appearance before the CIT(A). We are in opinion that the assessee has sufficient cause during the depositing of cash in her bank account.
The heafty amount was withdrawn 70 days ago for utilising the same for the business of her son. Unused amount was deposited in the same bank account of the assessee. The source of deposit of cash was well explained before the revenue authorities by the assessee. Therefore, AO was indeed in error in adopting a wrong fact in his order. The grievance raised by the ld. Sr. Dr. in this appeal, is, therefore, devoid of any legally sustainable merits. We reject the addition amount of made by the ld. AO. - Decided in favour of assessee.
