l finding in both the years. For the facility of reference, we take note of the finding recorded by the ld.CIT(A) in the Asstt.Year 2007-08. It reads as under: Decision: 6.

The actions of the A.O. of rejecting the book results u/sec. 145(3) of the Income-tax Act and of rejecting the claim of assessee for deduction u/s. 80JJA of the Act cannot be upheld due to following reasons: (i) The A.

of the Income-tax Act." The above remarks are very general in nature and the A. O. has really failed to point out any serious discrepancy or defect in the books of accounts of the assessee which would necessitate the rejection of the books of accounts and the book results. The fact that out of the ten parties from whom the assessee purchased cow dung during the year, two parties could not be located during the course of assessment proceedings or that such two parties did not reconfirm the s .....

ee. Since the A. O. has accepted the book results of the assessee as correct, he is not justified in claiming that the sales transactions shown by the assesee are fictitious in nature since the profits would not be generated unless the sales are made. If the book profits are accepted and found to be correct, the corresponding sales are also I required to be accepted as correct. Though the A. O. referred to the issues I of reconfirmation of purchases and sales during the course of assessment proc .....

not clear what he wanted to do. The acceptance of book results shown by the assessee renders A.O.'s own action of rejection of books of accounts and the book results untenable and as such, the action of the A. O. of rejecting the books of accounts and the book results cannot be approved and accordingly this ground of appeal is allowed. (ii) The assessee claimed deduction u/sec. 80JJA of the Income-tax Act. The A. O. has rejected the books of accounts u/sec. 145 (3) of the Income-tax Act. I d .....

Again while the A. 0. has rejected the claim for deduction u/sec. 80JJA of the Act, he has accepted the business profits shown by the assessee to be correct without pointing out as to if the assessee has not carried on the business of manufacture and sale of organic manure, then from which other business the assessee h .....

assessee to the said government authority. In view of the above, it clearly gets established that the assessee during the year manufactured and sold organic manure from the biodegradable waste and as such, profits from such business do qualify for deduction u/sec. 80JJA of the Act. In view of above facts, I am of the opinion that the assessee's claim of deduction u/sec. 80JJA of the Income-tax Act appears to be genuine and should be allowed. Accordingly, the A. O. is directed to allow the d .....
