nment, entails some degree of cerebral activity. There is, however, no corresponding expenditure, or claim in its respect, while the issue at hand is the apportionment of such expenditure. Income, which may or may not arise on incurring expenditure, and again with no certainty as to its quantum, cannot by itself form the basis of either incurring or allocation of expenditure.

A perusal of the provisions of section 14A, more specifically sub-section (2), shows that if the AO is not satisfied with the correctness of the claim of the assessee, then the AO shall determine the amount of expenditure incurred in relation to such income, which does not form part of total income under the Act. For this the method is prescribed in rule 8D. The provision of section 14A, sub-section (3) specifies the provision of 14A(2) would also apply where the assessee ma .....

voke the section 14A, he is to record a satisfaction on that issue. This satisfaction cannot be a plain satisfaction or a simple note. It is to be done with regard to accounts of the assessee. In the present case, there is no satisfaction by the AO and consequently, in view of the decision of the Coordinate bench of this Tribunal in the case of Balarampur Chini Mills Ltd. referred to supra, no disallowance under section 14A can be made. 7.
