  1. Income Tax : Penalty u/s 271(1)(c) - voluntary surrender of income by assessee - The mere offer therefore, of the amount during the search in the absence of any explanation for the source of income, renders the assessee’s argument insubstantial in the totality of circumstances. - HC

  12. Service Tax : Cleaning Services - Indian Railways - the original authority held cleaning of such railway coaches will be considered as cleaning of commercial premises - the interpretation of the original authority is far fetched and not sustainable in view of the plain meaning of the statutory definition for tax entry. - Tri

  14.

It is not tenable to hold that some products can avail area based exemption and others need not avail area based exemption. - Tri

  19. VAT and Sales Tax : The scheme of the Act would not permit the Tribunal to jettison the first appeal before the Commissioner and allow itself to act as first Appellate Authority.
