The assessee further stated that the year-end provisions were made purely on an estimation basis to ensure compliance with the provisions of the Companies Act, 1956 and for determination of book profits. That at that stage the parties to whom the expenses pertain to, were not known/identifiable. Thus, tax deduction at source mechanism could not be put into practice until identity of the person in whose hands it was includible as income, can be ascertain .....

AR of the assessee has stated that the issue of non-deduction of tax on year-end and provision is not involved, so far as the A.Y.2004-05 and 2005-06 are concerned. He, however, has stated that this issue is involved in the assessment year 2006-07 to A.Y.2009- 2010.

ell as the orders of AO in the assessment proceedings, the entire provision has been disallowed under section 40(a)(ia) and section 40(a)(i). Once the amount has been disallowed under the provisions of section 40(a)(i) on the reason that tax has not been deducted, it is surprising that AO holds that the said amounts are subject to TDS provisions again so as to demand the tax under the provisions of section 201 and also levy interest under section 201(1A). We are unable to understand the logic of .....

In view of the actual disallowance under section 40(a)(i) by assessee having been accepted by AO, we are of the opinion that the same amount cannot be considered as amount covered by the provisions of section 194C to 194J so as to raise TDS demand again under section 201 and levy of interest under section 201(1A). Therefore, assessee s ground on this issue are to be allowed as the enti .....

AO is directed to delete the said demand so raised. Appeal is accordingly allowed. 7. Since the facts and issues involved are identical in the appeals under co .....
