an application of the ad hoc net profit rate, unsubstantiated with any cogent reason. As the AO did carry out investigation on all the relevant aspects of the matter, which is evident from the order sheet entry, and the reply of the assessee giving details on several occasions, the assessment order cannot be termed as erroneous. We, therefore, set aside the action of the ld. CIT in making an addition of ₹ 65.84 lac by applying an ad hoc net profit rate. - Decided in favour of assessee.

ssee had shown turnover of ₹ 13.98 crore but a meager net profit of ₹ 6,36,538/- was declared. In his opinion, the AO did not examine Discount on sales amounting to ₹ 19.76 lac, Commission of ₹ 22.27 lac, and Incentive of ₹ 8.56 lac. He further observed that no vouchers, bills or supporting documents, etc., were produced before the AO. In his view, the AO was not justified in making an ad hoc addition of ₹ 1 lac out of some improperly vouched expenses. He, the .....

The assessee is aggrieved against the impugned order. 4. We have heard the rival submissions and perused the relevant material on record. We want to clarify that the mandate of section 263 is attracted only when the assessment order is found to be erroneous and prejudicial to the interest of the Revenue. These twin conditions have to be cumulatively satisfied for obtaining a valid jurisdiction under this section. Merely because an assessment order is prejudicial to the interest of the revenue is .....

eous. A line of distinction should be drawn between patently erroneous view and accepting one of the possible views. Only the former makes an assessment order erroneous and not the later. In other words, if there is a debatable issue and the AO has taken one of the possible and legally sustainable views, then that aspect goes outside the realm of revision. Another situation of an erroneous order may be when investigation was made by the AO, but the circumstances suggest that further investigatio .....

en the assessment order cannot be characterized as erroneous simply because there is no discussion in the assessment order on such aspects. If a view is taken that non-discussion of an issue in the assessment order on which the AO is satisfied, means the absence of application of mind by the AO, then probably all the assessment orders would become erroneous. It is so for the reason that the AO cannot be expected to discuss each and every, significant or insignificant aspect of assessment, in his .....

efore the AO and the resultant rejection of such books and the consequential computation of business income at ₹ 65.84 lac, as unsustainable. We have perused a copy of the order sheet entry of the AO, which is available on pages 368 to 370 of the paper book. It is manifest that the first notice was issued by the AO to the assessee on 26.8.2009. On 4.8.2010, the assessee appeared and was called upon to furnish various details listed at sr. nos. a) to o), inter alia, of sundry creditors, var .....

Again, on 16.11.2010, the assessee s C.A. appeared and produced books of account, which were again test checked and the assessment proceedings were completed on 8.12.2010. A bare perusal of the order sheet entry of the AO amply demonstrates that the assessee was called upon to produce books of account, which were duly produced on at least two occasions and the same were also checked by the AO. The observations of the ld. CIT about the non-production of book .....

s drawn our attention towards elaborate detail of all the expenses, etc., which were called for and submitted before the AO, whose copies have been made available to us as well. It can be seen from the order sheet entry of the AO dated 4.8.2010 that the AO did ask for details of Discount on sales and Commission etc., along with all other expenses, which were duly filed. Simply because such expenses account for a higher amount, cannot in itself be a reason to hold that the assessment order, allow .....

hoc addition of ₹ 1 lac to cover up possible leakage of revenue on account of self-made vouchers. This decision was taken on a holistic consideration of the material before him. It is not a case of no or improper inquiry conducted by the AO. The view point of the ld. CIT that the disallowance of ₹ 1 lac made by the AO out of expenses is paltry, cannot be a ground to hold the assessment order erroneous. It cannot be characterized as a patent mistake committed by the AO. At the most, i .....

In so far as the objections at sr. nos. 2 and 3 about the nonverification of sundry creditors and advances from customers are concerned, we find from order sheet entry dated 4.8.2010 that t .....
