2023 (3) TMI 717 - AT - Income Tax
Unexplained investment in the purchase of property - HELD THAT:- The assessee had purchased the piece of land measuring 18 kanal at Amritsar on 23.11.2006 for an amount of Rs.1,13,00,000/- and another piece of land measuring 16 kanal 1 marla at Amritsar on 05.12.2006 a sum of Rs. 50 lacs. The grievance of the AO was that the value was reduced during registration of the property. There is a huge difference in between agreement to sale and the registration of the property. The difference amount was taken as unexplained investment and added back the amount u/s 69 amount of Rs.3,40,00,000/-. After the agreement the dispute is occurred in acquisition of land and accordingly further bargain was taken place.
The fact that the assessee clearly mentioned that this agreement was rejected, and the assessee further made a separate deal about the property and paid the value as decided during the registration. Copy of the ITR audited balance sheet as proof of payment is annexed - The issue was already dealt before the DCIT and the submission is annexed.
We find that there is a reasonable explanation about the assessee for reduction of the value of the property as prior agreement to sale. We are not intervening in the order of the CIT(A). Accordingly, the appeal of the revenue is dismissed.
