not eligible for exemption under Section 11 of the Act. Referring to the order of the CIT(Appeals), more particularly para 4.1, the Ld.counsel submitted that the CIT(Appeals) is not correct in saying that the aim of the assessee-Sangam is not solely for education. According to the Ld. counsel, the object of the Sangam is primarily for education. The Sangam is also pursuing institutional activity apart from the primary object of education.

fact, according to the Ld. counsel, the letter dated 17.03.2015 was not served on the assessee. The working said to be made by the CIT(Appeals) was also not furnished to the assessee. Therefore, the assessee could not file any objection before the CIT(Appeals). Even assuming for argument sake that so-called letter dated 17.03.2015 was served on the assessee, still the time given to the assessee was not sufficient to give objection since the CIT(Appeals) passed the order on 26.03.2015. 4.

The assessee claimed before the Assessing Officer that it was entitled to exemption under Section 11 and Section 10(23C)(vi) of the Act. This objection was overruled. On a query from the Bench whether the letter dated 17.03.2015 was furnished to the assessee, the Ld. D.R. very fairly submitted that he has to call for records from the CIT(Appeals) to verify whether the letter was in fact served on the assessee or .....

emption under Section 11 of the Act, the Ld. D.R. submitted that the power of the CIT(Appeals) is co-terminus with that of the Assessing Officer. Therefore, according to the Ld. D.R., what the Assessing Officer omitted to consider, the CIT(Appeals) can very well consider the same provided an opportunity given to the assessee. In the case before us, according to the Ld. D.R., the Assessing Officer has not considered the violation of Section 13(1)(b) of the Act. Therefore, he had no occasion to ex .....

6. We have considered the rival submissions on either side and perused the relevant material available on record. Admittedly, the Assessing Officer allowed exemption under Section 10(23C)(vi) of the Act, however, disallowed the claim of the assessee for depreciation on the capital asset. It is not in dispute that the assessee filed appeal before the CIT(Appeals) only in respect of the claim of depreciation. The CIT(Appeals), while considering the appeal of the assessee in respect of depreciation .....
