y, 2011. Mr. Malhotra, the learned counsel appearing on behalf of the Revenue in support of this appeal submits that this appeal raises substantial questions of law. They are formulated at pages 4 and 5 of the paper-book. They read as under : A. Whether, on the facts and in the circumstances of the case and in law, the Hon'ble Tribunal was justified in granting exemption u/s. 10(33) and 10(38) to the tune of ₹ 25.96 lakhs and ₹ 3.21 lakhs respectively, when this income forms a pa .....

nstructed to have been fulfilled the purpose of accumulation ? 3. In relation to the first three questions Mr. Malhotra would submit that the Assessing Officer committed no mistake and his understanding of the provisions of law was accurate. Chapter III of the Income Tax Act, 1961, according to Mr. Malhotra, is entitled 'Incomes Which Do Not Form Part of Total Income'. Mr. Malhotra submits that the term total income appearing in section 10 and the wording of section 11 would indicate as .....

herein. Therefore, the Assessing Officer held that for the purposes of fulfillment of the conditions of section 11 and section 12, particularly on application of the income derived from property held under trust wholly for charitable or religious purpose had not been further subjected to any exclusion. It is only the exemption in terms of section 11 which would apply and in relation to persons like the assessee before us. From their income there is no scope for exclusion of what is grantable und .....

not included in total income and as far as section 11 is concerned income from property held for charitable or religious purposes is dealt with by it. There is no scope for the argument that from the total income of any person which may include a trust or an assessee before us, the exclusion in terms of section 10 would not apply. It is after such exclusions that the income from property held for charitable or religious purposes would have to be dealt with and in that amount the matters covered .....

he other three questions, Mr. Malhotra would submit that the Tribunal erred in holding that the Commissioner's direction to the Assessing Officer to reconsider the assessee's claims deserves to be set aside. The Commissioner had directed that the Assessing Officer should verify whether ₹ 30,00,000/- which was accumulated and set aside under section 11(2) was utilised for the specified purpose and within the stipulated period. Now, the assessee claims that this sum was indeed utilis .....

tal expenses of ₹ 48,78,000/- incurred during the period relevant to assessment year 2002-03, a sum of ₹ 30,00,000/- has been spent out of accumulated amount. When the amount accumulated for the assessment year 2001-02 has been fully spent during the period relevant to assessment year 2002-03, then, the condition was fully satisfied. There was no reason to send the matter back. This finding recorded in paragraph 5 of the order of the Tribunal, according to Dr. Shivram, does not raise .....

rutiny in the light of the legal provision and namely section 11 of the Income Tax Act. The Assessing Officer noted that a sum of ₹ 25,96,287/- received on account of dividend income is claimed as exempt under section 10(33) of the Income Tax Act. However, this income forms a part of the income from trust property and, therefore, can only be claimed to be exempt under section 11 of the Income Tax Act if applied for charity and not under section 10(33) of the Income Tax Act. Claim of exempt .....

provisions and relate to exemption claimed by charitable institutions, then, the assessee has no option to choose whether it wants to avail the exemption under section 10(33) or section 11 of the Income Tax Act, 1961. He relied upon a circular of 1968 issued by the Central Board of Direct Taxes. He also relied upon the language of section 11(1) and the expression total income defined in section 2(45) of the Income Tax Act, 1961, as the total amount of income computed in the manner laid down in .....
