He considered the raising of bogus invoices to inflate the agricultural income as mere non-compliance with procedures of the RBI or Cu .....

per the AO it was clear from the above audit report that for every sale effected to the subsidiary, assessee was raising two invoices.

AO after verification found that only the primary invoice was routed through the Customs and not the supplementary one. In his opinion there were no underlying goods to support such supplementary invoices. Explanation of the assessee was sought, especially with regard to the supp .....

te reason for raising two invoices for each transaction. As per the assessee even if the agricultural income was from domestic transactions it still remained exempt. Thus according to the assessee addition made by the AO was not justified. 7. CIT (A) was appreciative of the above contentions. According to him, claim of the assessee that first invoice was at a notional value and the second invoice was raised based on ultimate realisation was an acceptable one. As per the Ld.
