lso having no place of business or establishment in India. There was thus, as per the assessee, no question of any part of the impugned sum being chargeable to tax in India; further relying on the decision in the case of GE India Technology Centre (P.) Ltd. (supra). The facts being not in dispute, the issue arising is primarily legal, i.e., whether the provision of s. 40(a)(i) is attracted in the facts of the case. Section 40(a)(i), overriding sections 30 to 38, provides that where any interest, .....

rst thing, therefore, that we would need to see is whether the provisions of Chapter XVII-B are attracted to the impugned payment. The payments to a non-resident being covered under section 195, we begin by reproducing the same in its relevant part, the interpretation of which is in issue: 'Other sums. 195. (1) Any person responsible for paying to a non-resident, not being a company, or to a foreign company, any interest (not being interest referred to in section 194LB or section 194LC) or s .....

after considering the decision in the case of Transmission Corpn. of A.P. Ltd. (supra), covers the assessee's case, so that no tax was deductible u/s. 195, what we are required to, in order to decide the Revenue's appeal there-against, do is to examine the validity of the said finding, and toward the same, the said decision. As explained by the apex court therein, if the interpretation being accorded by the Revenue to section 195, i.e., that the moment payment to a non-resident is made, .....

rpretation by the Revenue was, in its view, guided more by administrative convenience, and which would though imply deduction of tax even on payments qua which there was no territorial nexus with India or otherwise were not chargeable to tax in India. Administrative considerations could not be the basis of the interpretation of the statutory provisions, even as the law contemplates adequate safeguards in the form of section 40(a)(i) and section 195(6); the latter being inserted on the statute by .....

eaking Corpn. v. CIT[2009] 314 ITR 309/[2008] 175 Taxman 77 (SC) and, rather Transmission Corpn. of A.P. Ltd. (supra) as well, squarely covers the facts of the instant case. The Revenue, to enable us to disturb the like finding by the ld. CIT(A), ought to have explained as to how it is infirm or does not amount to a correct reading of the said decision, or is otherwise not applicable in the facts of the case.

We are conscious that Explanation 2 to section 195(1) has since been co-opted on the statute, i.e., by Finance Act, 2012 w.e.f. 01.04.1962, and which reads as under: 'Other sums. " 195.
