One cannot ignore this aspect that provisions of section 14A as well as section 115JB are deeming provisions and therefore their scope and effect cannot be extended beyond what the statute has provided therein.

The plain language of clause (f) of explanation 1 of section 115JB clearly suggests that amount of expenditure relatable to any income to which section 10 [other than the provisions contained in clause (38)] only shall be added to compute the taxable amount of book profits. No method has been prescribed u/s 115JB to compute such expenditure, nor has the legislature linked aforesaid clause (f) to the provisions of section 14A or rule 8D.
