count U/s 145(3) of the Act. There is no justification by the learned CIT(A in confirming the addition of ₹ 1 lac without confirming the rejection of book result U/s 145(3) of the Act.

Therefore, we confirm .....

circumstances of the issue under consideration. As can be seen, the controversy involved in the present case is only about the rejection of books of account and estimation of income u/s 145 of the Act.

ec. 145. In this regard, the onus is on the department to prove that accounts are really defective or incomplete to invoke such harsh measures. The above views are also echoed in the following decisions:- 1. Uttam Chuna Pathan Udhyog 20 TW 422 (Jaipur Bench) 2. Paradise Holidays 325 ITR 20 (Delhi). In this regard, apart from the case laws relied upon by the learned A.R., even in other cases, including of M/s Gotton Line Khanij Udhyog (256 ITR 243) (Raj.) and Vinod Kumar Promad Kumar (66 TTJ 722) .....

In my considered opinion, since the appellant has shown better result in the current year on higher T.O. therefore, the other related minor shortcomings on the part of the appellant have became insignificant and redundant. Accordingly, the act of rejection of the books of account U/s 145(3) on the part of the A.O. is held as untenable and unwarranted, thus cancelled accordingly. Similarly, thoug .....

Payment through cash, self made vouchers, which were verified by the Assessing Officer and detailed findings have been given in the assessment order and these defects are sufficient in case of civil contractor to reject the book result. Theref .....
