g that the AO was right in considering the above expenses capital in nature. As the expenses were incurred and paid to bank for processing of various loans and CDR package hence the same were capital in nature. 2 The Ld. CIT(A) has erred on facts and in law in deleting addition of ₹ 15,75,045/- on account of stamp duty charges paid for issue of debenture certificates while failing to distinguish in partly convertible debenture and fully convertible debentures. The AO was correct in conside .....

he Ld. AO has taken the expenditure as capital or as a contingent liability. The said expenditure was paid to the bank for taking of loan and CDR package. It is well settled that processing of loan per-se can never be capital in nature and is a part of the routine job of the business. In this regard the decision of the Delhi High Court in CIT vs. Monnet Industries Ltd. [2008] 16 DTR (Del) 307 is relied upon. Further, the loan cannot be construed as a contingent liability in as much as the bank h .....

round of appeal no. 1. 6. On careful consideration of the above findings, we notice that there is no basis for the revenue to contend that any expenditure incurred towards loan is not an eligible business expenditure. Such an expenditure is revenue expenditure as has also been held by the Apex Court in the case of India Cements Ltd. vs. CIT (supra) whereby Their lordships have concluded as under: We are of the opinion that: (a) the loan obtained is not an asset or advantage of an enduring nature .....

ited to the suspense account and therefore, the CIT(A) correctly held that the amount cannot be treated as contingent liability by following the dicta of Kedarnath Jute Mfg. Co.

Brook Bond India Ltd. 225 ITR 798 and CIT(A) on appeal, further allowed the claim of deduction and as such this appeal by the revenue. 10.

there is no submission from the assessee. It needs to be mentioned that debenture or expenses thereof is not an expansion of capital base of the assessee. It is a loan which is to be returned and therefore the decision in Punjab State Indl. Development Corpn. Ltd. (supra) and Brook Bond India Ltd. cannot come to the help of the Revenue. The stamp duty towards debenture is nothing but done with the intention of furthering of business of the assessee. As such, therefore, the said expenditure would .....
