Disallowance u/s. 14A - Held that:- The balancesheet reflects an adequate balance of net working capital, i.e., current assets less current liabilities, both as at the beginning and the close of the year, being at ₹ 52.80 crores and ₹ 43.76 crores respectively. That leaves only unsecured loan/s, which continues at the opening balance of ₹ 101.37 lakhs during the year.

As regards administrative expenditure, the disallowance for the same has been restricted to the ratio (0.5% of the investment) in terms of rule 8D(2)(iii) of the Rules. We find the same as reasonable and, accordingly, confirm the same. - Activity of purchase and sale of scrips - in the nature of trade or business transaction, or in the nature of an investment - Held that:- The activity, wh .....

Rather, the said activities, which are allied and pari materia, being in the same market and in the same scrips, reinforce and endorse the Revenue’s stand of the assessee’s activity of buying and selling of shares as being regular trading activity.

We may though clarify that the Bhillai unit being a unit of the assesseecompany, it’s books of account form part of the accounts of the company.

g tax-exempt income. We observe that while investment in shares and securities has increased from ₹ 21.06 lakhs (as at the beginning of the year) to ₹ 243.45 lakhs as at its end, there has been, rather, a decline in the borrowed capital during the year, i.e., from ₹ 4352.15 lakhs (as at the beginning of the year) to ₹ 3518.86 lakhs at its end. That apart, as clarified by the ld. AR with reference to Schedule III to the balance-sheet, the bulk of it is in the form of secur .....

Further, even if being realised at fair value, the property therein only belongs to the company, which is entitled to the fair value, i.e., apart from any action arising out of the unauthorized sale. Again, the unit incurring loss, it appears strange that there should at all be a dispute to claim the management rights. Be that as it may, the Revenue s stand is unexceptional.

With regard to the claim for depreciation, we observe that the same stands allowed by the Assessing Officer himself, with the ld.

Without doubt, the allowance of depreciation can only be in terms of the provisions of law, so that the Assessing .....

6. We next take up the only surviving Gd. 1 of the Revenue s appeal. The same relates to assessment of income on the sale of shares (Rs.43,90,684/-) as business income, as against short-term capital gain returned by the assessee. The matter has been dealt with extensively by the Assessing Officer, and for which reference is made to para 7 (pages 8-25) of the assessment order. The purchase/sale activity has been examined by him in detail and with reference to its different parameters, and consid .....

It is clear therefore that the assessee has traded on the movement in the shares prices from day to day, dealing in the scrips on a dayto- day basis, rather than holding it as an investment. (c) The said activity entails sizable investment of the company s resources. By way of an example, the bank statement for 15 days for the month of April has been reproduced, to show and demonstrate that out of a total of 40 transactions, 30 are respect of purchase or sale of securities. It is also relevant .....
