Disallowance of 10% of purchases - CIT(A) deemed it proper to sustain the disallowance at 2% of the purchases - Held that:- No justification to interfere with the order of the CIT(A). So far as the Revenue’s appeal is concerned, the CIT(A) has already recorded that the GP as well as NP of the year under consideration is better than the preceding year which was accepted by the Revenue. Therefore, the Revenue should not be aggrieved because of reduction in the disallowance by the CIT(A). So far as .....

ed that all the cash payments would be exceeding ₹ 20,000/-. The disallowance u/s 40A(3) cannot be made on the basis of presumption. As not a single payment in cash exceeding ₹ 20,000/- for wages have been pointed out; therefore, in our opinion, Section 40A(3) is not applicable.

we find that in Assessment Year 2008-09 the CIT(A) while deleting the disallowance out of wages u/s 40A(3) have sustained lump-sum disallowance of ₹ 5,00,000/- out of wages and such disallowa .....

Merely because the seller party was not found available at the address given by them in their sale bill, some disallowance on estimate basis may be justified; but that is not sufficient to levy the penalty u/s 271(1)(c) of the Income-tax Act.

Similarly, for lump-sum disallowance out of wages, no penalty u/s 271(1)(c) is liable to be imposed. The Assessing Officer had made the disallowance u/s 40A(3) amounting to ₹ 49,94,612/-. While deciding the quantum appeal, we have given the finding that the disallowance u/s 40A(3) is not called for because there is no evidence of cash .....

Further the AO has given no reason as to why the disallowance should be at the rate of 10%. No basis for adopting this percentage has been given, hence according to the appellant, the disallowance is adhoc and based on conjectures and surmises. In view of these reasons, I agree with the appellant that the disallowance made by the AO is adhoc and also the AO has not given any .....

We have carefully considered the arguments of both the sides and perused the material placed before us.
