AO would replace the sale consideration disclosed by the assessee by an amount on which stamp duty was paid by the assessee. Therefore, this section is of no help while determining the unexplained investment of the assessee.

In view of the above discussion, we are of the view that the learned Revenue authorities have failed to appreciate the facts and circumstances. The assessees have not made any unexplained investment in purchase of plots, and therefore, no additions deserve to be m .....

assed in the case of Shri Vishnuprasad S. Agarwal, who is also co-owner of the property, in whom, it was alleged that the assessee has made unexplained investment. 5.

ome for making such investment, and if explanation offered by the assessee is not, in the opinion of the AO satisfactory, then, the excess amount would be treated as income of the assessee for such financial year. Thus, the basic condition for applying under section 69B is that it should be found that the assessee has made investment or the assessee found to be owner of the money, bullion and jewellery. In the present case, both assessees were found to have made investment for purchase of plots. .....

in the sale deed. His belief is based on the basis of stamp duty valuation which authorizes the valuation authorities to charge stamp duty on registering the transfer of plots. This type of evidence possessed by the AO is of not such a nature, which empowers him to invoke section 69B of the Act. Stamps duty paid by the assessee on purchase of land is a small portion of the total consideration, say, 8% or 10% of the total value.

Section 50C is a deeming provision where under the stamp duty rate is treated as full value of consideration for the purpose of computing capital gain under section 48. It is applicable in the case of a seller of property and therefore cannot be invoked in case of purchaser of property for the purpose of section 69B. CIT (A) has given a finding that the A.O. has not made any independent enquiry or collected corroborative evidence to justify the ad .....
