If the Tribunal fails to make such an exercise the judgment will suffer from serious infirmity - We are thus clearly of the opinion that the Tribunal fell into an error in interfering with the order of the CIT(A) without first dislodging the reasons given by him. Assuming that another view was possible, that itself would be no ground to interfere with the order of the CIT(A) unless it is shown that the appreciation of evidence by the CIT(A) was either perverse or untenable and that in holdin .....

ce amount of ₹ 86,550/- (i.e. 3,26,550 - 2,40,000) the A. R. argued that the appellant had income from profession since 31.3.80 and the accumulated capital was introduced in one year. I have considered the argument and I find that the A. R. could not produce any evidence of professional income since 1980 except filing a Chart. Hence the addition of ₹ 86,500/- is held to be justified. The assessee and the revenue both appealed against the order of the CIT(A) before the Tribunal. The T .....

that the cash difference between the closing stock and opening stock of ₹ 50,000/- could not be established by any cogent reason. Such being the case, we find it was a very weak effort on unsubstantiated submissions to try to explain away the closing balance and opening balance of ₹ 3,26,550/- by making certain story about unproved alleged gifts to cover up the difference. Before the CIT(A), there was not even an iota of evidence that the gifts were genuine on the basis of any admiss .....

2001 u/s. 144 r/w. 147 rightly concluded that the assessee had no explanation to offer regarding the increase in opening stock and opening capital and the same was income of the assessee from undisclosed sources. In this view of the matter the action of the assessing officer in adding back these amounts to the total income could not be faulted and the CIT(A) fell in error by interfering with the same. We have heard the arguments advanced at the Bar and perused the records. The learned Tribunal i .....
