Addition u/ 68 - Held that:- Unless the genuineness of the source of the sum of money found credited in the assessee’s books is satisfactorily established, the assessee cannot be said to have discharged the requisite burden of proof placed on him u/s. 68. The material furnished by the assessee is thus hardly adequate for proving the genuineness (of the credit/s) and/or the capacity of the creditors. The AO, as observed by the ld.

days - Held that:- Trial production could be caused only upon successful commissioning of all the different parts of the plant, stated to be a lamination plant, i.e., in the main. The trial production expenses, including wastages, would also stand to be capitalized, of which there is no reflection. In view of the foregoing, we therefore have no hesitation in upholding the inference of the additions to the machinery being put to use for less than 180 days during the relevant year and, thus, exig .....

This is the second round before the Tribunal, which restored the matter for fresh assessment back to the file of the Assessing Officer (AO) in the first instance in view of the assessee filing additional evidences before, which though had not been admitted by, the first appellate authority.

shares being not marketable, and the investment thus not liquid, a person who is not a promoter, or a concern belonging to him, as, say, Pushkaraj Corporation P. Ltd., the proprietary concern of Sharmila Khasid, the promoters wife, would ordinarily have no reason to invest therein, being, rather, contrary to the normal, natural human behavior and conduct. They are after all parting with their funds as investors, in the hope of and on the premise of a prospective gain, and not as charity. The tes .....

This is as where not issued, a genuine investor shall, except in case of a tacit understanding of the money being given for good, recall his money back. The material furnished by the assessee is thus hardly adequate for proving the genuineness (of the credit/s) and/or the capacity of the creditors. The AO, as observed by the ld.

That is, is a finding of fact. In other words, whether the burden of proof, which is on the assessee-recipient, the beneficiary, stands discharged or not is essentially a matter of fact.

Why, even the reason for making an illiquid investment has not been stated?
