Reopening of assessment - non offering of truck income - non deduction of tds u/s 194C - Held that:- With regard to the first reason recorded by the AO namely not offering truck income to the extent of ₹ 67,600/-, the assessee had declared income from lorry plying of ₹ 50,000/- under the head “income from Basanti Automobiles”.

reason recorded by the AO is concerned it relates to the carriage inward charges in the business of wholesale dealing in potato seeds. As already observed that the AO examined the carriage inward account in the original assessment proceedings and did not think it fit that there was any violation of section 40(a)(ia) of the Act. It can thus be seen that this issue on which the AO initiated reassessment proceedings had been duly considered by the AO while concluding the proceedings u/s 143(3) of .....

Hence, according to the AO there was escapement of income of ₹ 67,600/ (Rs.117600- ₹ 50000 ). 2. .....

e fact that provisions of sec.40 (a) (ia) of the Act on expenditure of ₹ 16,43,100/- on account of carriage inward were attracted and hence would have to be added back to total income of the Assessee. This was not looked into while completing the original assessment. The AO after pointing out to the above facts called upon the Assessee to explain within 7(seven) days from receipts of the said letter why the above ₹ 17,10,700/- (Rs.16,43,100 + ₹ 67,600) should not be treated as .....

f income of plying of trucks was not correct and that the Assessee had disclosed income from plying of his one lorry u/s. 44AE of the Act and that he had not used the Maruti Car and Toyota Innova on hire and therefore applying the provisions of s. 44AE of the Act in respect of the other two vehicles was erroneous.

The Assessee also requested the AO to furnish a copy of the reasons recorded for initiating proceedings u/s.147 of the Act. 5. However. the Ld.

The AO further disallowed expense to the tune of ₹ 50.122/- out of depreciation on car, interest on car loan and car expenses.

FOR THAT on a true and proper interpretation of the scope and ambit of the provisions of s. 147 of the Income Tax Act, 1961, the Ld. Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals) XXXVI, Kolkata was absolutely in error in upholding the action of the Ld. Income Tax Officer, Ward 2(2), Hooghly of issuing notice u/ s. 148 of the Income Tax Act, 1961 misconstruing the crucial expression tangible material' in support of such futile exercise and the purported conclusion reached on that behalf is wholly erro .....

I have heard the submissions of the ld. Counsel for the assessee and the ld. DR on the aforesaid grounds of appeal. I deem it convenient to deal with the arguments raised before me that the proceedings u/s 148 of the Act have not been validly initiated because the proceedings u/s 148 of the Act were initiated purely based on change of opinion without any fresh material coming to the knowledge of the AO. The undisputed facts in so far as the aforesaid issue are that the assessee is an individual .....

In response to the aforesaid notice he demanded a copy of the reasons recorded for initiating the proceedings u/s 148 of the Act. It appears that the assessee was not furnished the reasons recorded by the AO but on the other hand, the AO had relied upon the letter dated 22.06.2011 which was issued to the assessee prior to the issue of notice u/s 148 of the Act.

disputed by the AO. Besides the above, there was no tangible material based on which the AO came to a conclusion that income from truck plying was not offered to tax by the Assessee in the original return of income. In fact the factual assertion in the letter dated 22.6.2011 that the Assessee owned three vehicles and that these were used in the business of plying trucks on hire is without any basis and is purely a surmise of the AO. 10.

DR has however argued before me that though the transport inward charges were not inquired into by the AO he did not apply his mind on the applicability of the provision of section 40(a)(ia) of the Act. According to him the initiation of re-assessment proceedings were valid. In this regard, it is worthwhile to refer to the decision of the Hon ble Delhi High Court in the case of CIT vs Usha International Ltd. (2012) 348 ITR 485 (Del) wherei .....
