so recorded in the order that interest bearing funds were utilised for purchase of shares, some of which yielded dividend income. Perusal of the assessment order indicates that the basis of disallowance of interest by the A O rests upon his presumption that some expenditure was incurred towards shares from which dividend was earned.

High court that it has been held that if the borrowing is for the purpose of the business then interest need not be apportioned between the business requirements and the moneys borrowed for the purpose of investment in shares. U/s. 36' interest paid by an assessee for the purpose of carrying on its business is deducted in its entirety while computing profits and gains of business and therefore it is not possible to allocate a portion of that interest as against income from dividends by stat .....

CIT(A) are relating to those cases where the interest bearing funds have been used for business purposes and dividend income has been earned incidentally. As the facts of the case of assessee do not match with the facts dealt in by Hon. Jurisdictional High Court, ld. CIT(A) was not correct to straight away applying the same to the case of asse .....
