Registration under Section 12A cancelled - Whether AO could have rendered findings questioning the exemption under Section 12-A enjoyed by the assessee, on the basis of the donation which was made to the Ram Krishna and Sons Charitable Trust? - Held that:- The AO in the present case noticed that after the donation of the institution to the assessee on 26.05.2002 a significant portion of income i.e. fee collection etc., was donated to the RKSCT.

an explanation better than the one it argued that the AOs reasoning was not supported by law as he was not the authority to doubt such expenditure. The obligation required of a charitable trust enjoying the benefit of tax exemption under Section 12A is clearly categorical in that it has applied for registration under Section 80G(5) towards its charitable activities.

In these circumstances the DIT (Exemption) was certainly within her rights to insist on a proper explanation which in .....

Sons Charitable Trust. 2. The question of law which arises in ITA 16/2013 is: Whether in the circumstances of the case ITAT was justified in setting aside the order of the Director of Income Tax (Exemption), which had cancelled the assessee s registration under Section 12A. 3. Brief facts are that the assessee was registered as trust on 01.02.2001. Its application for registration as a charitable trust was granted on 27.12.2001. On 30.06.2002 the assessee received the IILM Undergraduate Busines .....

ers were carried in appeal; the CIT (Appeals) confirmed them. On further appeal the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT) granted relief to the assessee. The ITAT reasoned that the AO was not empowered to comment either on the correctness or otherwise of the certificate which had been granted under Section 12A and that the appropriate statutory authority in that regard was the Director of Income Tax (DIT) (Exemption). Against the orders of ITAT, Revenue s appeals have arisen in ITA 1312/2010 & .....

to be answered against the Revenue and in favour of the assessee. 5. The second question which arises for consideration in ITA No.16/2013 is as to the legality of the revocation of the certificate under Section 12-A ordered by the DIT (Exemption). The order took note of the decision of the AO for AY 2003-04 and 2004-05 and thereafter the concerned authorities appears to have issued show cause notice to the assessee on 03.12.2009. The assessee appears to have responded on 26.05.2010, and relied .....

as voluntary received whereas in actual conduct, the assessee society has repaid crores of rupees year after year to the institution which transferred the educational institution i.e. IILM Undergraduate Business School (IILM-UBS). The entire transaction of transfer and the so called donation to such institution is nothing but a colorable device to subvert the provision of the law and to gain benefits among specified person u/s 13 of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

In appeal, the ITAT accepted the assessee s contention and held as follows: The bare perusal of the clause would reveal that registration already granted to the assessee can be cancelled if the activities of the trust are not genuine or the activities of the trust are not carried on in accordance with the objects of the trust.

The assessee, if not acquired the institution by donation and it had not donated a sum of ₹ 4.43 crore to RKSCT then probably there would be no prejudice to the revenue and there could be no grievance. The receipt ought to be received by RKSCT and it would then treated as application of income by that trust towards its objects. Ld. DIT has not pointed out as to how donations made by assessee are not in accordance with .....
