In this view of the matter, we hold that the liability which has actually been written off can only be treated as income of assessee u/s 41(1) of the Act - ITA No. 2389/Kol /2013 & IT(SS)A No. 91/Kol /2013 - Dated:- 8-2-2017 - Shri Aby.T Varke, Judicial Member And Shri Waseem Ahmed, Accountant Member By Assessee : Smt.

iability of ₹ 45,66,425/- was reflecting as on 31.03.2003 in the balance-sheet. A part of such liability was paid in the year under consideration for ₹ 19,39,239.60 and the balance was reflecting in the balancesheet as on 31.03.2004. During the year, the liability of ₹ 1,86,236/- was paid through account payee cheque. Therefore, the liability of ₹ 17,53,003/- (1939239.60 - 1,86,236) at the most can attract the provisions of Sec. 41(1) of the Act. The balance trading liabi .....

There is also no report from the bank the suggesting that assessee herself has withdrawn the money from the bank. Further, assessee submitted that out of total trading liability of ₹ 45,46,425/- and payment of ₹ 9,55,194.98 was issued through account payee cheque only. Therefore, the disallowance of the entire amount made by AO is without the .....

In view of above, AO opined that assessee herself has withdrawn the cash from bank and liability has ceased to exist in assessee s book. Accordingly, AO invoked the provision of Sec. 41(1) of the Act and added the amount of ₹ 45,66,425/- to the total income of assess .....

After considering the submission of assessee, Ld. CIT(A) granted partly relief to assessee by observing as under:- 8. I have perused the relevant orders and the material on record.

sessee 'was not even aware of the current addresses. It is also noted that no confirmation from the creditors was filed by the assessee. When the assessee was confronted with the fact that the notices u/s 133(6) were not served on the creditors at the given addresses, the onus was on the assessee to bring positive material on record to show that the creditors were actually in existence. The assessee has admitted that payments to the extent of ₹ 36,11,230/- were made by bearer cheques. .....

In this factual background, I find merit in the finding of the AO that the assessee had failed to establish that the creditors were actually in existence. The AO was justified in concluding that the liability to the extent of ₹ 36,11,230/- had ceased to exist; and consequently, the provisions of section 41(1) were attract .....

My learned predecessor vide his letter dated 18-01- 2012 sent copy of the paper- book to the AO and directed him to verify the contentions of the assessee. As no report was received from the AO, a reminder was issued on 21-06-2013.
