Whether the Tribunal was correct in not appreciating the fact that the provision of Section 194A(3)(v) is a general provision granting benefit to all co-operative societies, whereas, the provisions of Section 194A(3)(i)(b) deals with co-operative society carrying on the business of banking, hence specific provisions in any case overrides the general provisions? 2.

provision which mandates deduction of tax at source by a co-operative Society carrying on the business of banking, where the income in the form of interest which is paid by such society is in excess of ten thousand rupees. Sec.194A(3)(v) of the Act provides that tax need not be deducted at source where the income in the form of interest is credited or paid by a co-operative society to a member thereof or to any other co-operative society. This provision therefore applies to all co-operative soci .....

f the Act. Similarly U/s 194A(3)(viia)(b) interest on deposits other than time deposits even if the payment is made to a non-member by a co-operative society, the co-operative society need not deduct tax at source. Thus this section carves out another exception to Sec.194A(3)(i)(b) of the Act. We do not think that any of the above provisions can be called a general provision an other provision called specific provisions. Each provision over-lap and if read in the manner as indicated above, there .....

The law is well settled that by a process of interpretation one cannot add on words that are not found in the text of the statute. Such a course is permitted only when there is causes omisus . We do not think that the provisions of Sec.194A(3)(v) suffers from any causes omisus as has been interpreted by the ITAT Pune Bench SMC. 16. We are also of the view that the decision of the Hon ble Kerala .....

The above interpretation of the provision by the CBDT which is in favour of the Assessee, in our view is binding on the tax authorities. 19. In the case decided by ITAT Panaji Bench in ITA No.85/PN/2013 for AY.09-10 in the case of the Bailhongal Uraban Co-op Bank Ltd Vs.

How could it be said that the entire Circular has been quashed by the Hon ble Bombay High Court?

Similar view has also been expressed by the Pune Bench of the ITAT in the case of Ozer Merchant Co- operative Bank ITA No.1588/PN/2012 order dated 30.10.2013. We may add that in both these decisions the discussion did not turn on the interpretation of Sec.194A(3)(i)(b) of the Act vis-à-vis Sec.194A(3)(v) of the Act. It is thus clear that the preponderance of judicial opinion on this issue is that co- operative .....
