He submitted that the Tribunal has failed to appreciate the evidence produced by the appellant to prove the genuineness of the impugned purchases instead relied upon irrelevant evidence so as to come to the conclusion that the impugned purchases were bogus.

Sheth reported in [2013] 38 taxmann.com 385 (Gujarat); (II) Commissioner of income tax vs. Bholanath Poly Fab (P) Ltd reported in [2 .....

Pawanraj B Bokadia (supra). 9.
