ilable with the A.O. to reopen the assessment. I am, therefore, of the considered opinion that the initiation of proceedings u/s. 147, in the facts and circumstances of the case, is not correct and the consequent assessment made u/s. 143(3) rws 147 is therefore not sustainable in law and quashed". 4.

Therefore, taxing the waiver of this interest in the current year is not valid as the same was never allowed as a deduction to the appellant………" 6.6 I do not find any difference between the facts and circumstances of the case for the assessment year now under appeal, i.e., AY. 2005-06 and the AY. 2003-04.
