,29,049/- According to the AO, the appellant has incurred loss in those shares which were listed on the Calcutta Stock Exchange. However, I do not agree with this observation of the AO because the appellant has suffered total loss of ₹ 15,29,049/- on scrips which were listed both on BSE/NSE.

The AO has observed in his order that in the cases of some scrips, the respecti .....

The appellant is concerned only about the receipt of shares on .....

The AO himself has not brought anything on record to prove that the transactions of purchase and sale of the shares in which the appe .....

The AO has also failed to examine any of the share brokers if he was having any doubt about the .transactions carried out by the appellant.
