tion was produced before the AO. The AO passed the assessment order for AY 1992-93 on 17th April 1995 and for AY 1993-94 on 20th December 1995. A perusal of the assessment order for AY 1992-93 show that the AO was conscious of the fact that deduction had been claimed under Section 80-O of the Act. The discussion in the assessment order was focussed on whether the claim of the Assessee for 50% deduction in respect of the gross amount brought into India was justified.

rders were passed for AYs 1992-93 and 1993-94. In terms of Section 147 of the Act, one of the primary conditions to justify reopening of the assessment beyond the period of four years after the expiry of the relevant assessment year in which the assessment orders were passed is the failure on the part of the Assessee to disclose the material particulars. The case of the Revenue is that the agreement between the Assessee and the Sumitomo Corporation was the material document which was not disclos .....
