dependent units have been merged with single entry. In fourth case also, even though there are multiple entries, interiors have been merged into single unit. Thus these residential units have more than the maximum built up area specified u/s.80IB(10). According to the Assessing Officer, legislative intendment for giving tax exemption u/s. 80IB(10) was to increase of stock of house for low and middle income group. This legislative intendment cannot be allowed to be defeated by resorting to separa .....

It was clear that the condition for deduction u/s.80IB have been violated. The fact that assessee has made two separate agreements will be of no help to the assessee because such an action on the part of the assessee violates the letter as well as spirit of the law. The action of the assessee in clubbing two units into one .....

Without prejudice to above, the CIT(A) was not justified in not allowing pro-rata allowance of deduction for the residential units of the housing project not exceeding 1500 sq.ft. In this regard Ld.

On a careful reading of this judgment, we find that nowhere it is stated that proportionate deduction should not be allowed, in case certain residential units had built up area in excess of prescribed limit of 1,000 sq.ft. In fact, this issue was not before the Hon'ble Jurisdictional High Court. The questio .....

The question then to be considered is, whether the Special Bench of the Tribunal was justified in holding that the projects having commercial area upto 10% of the built-up area of the plot are eligible for deduction under section 80IB(10) on the entire project upto 1.4.2005. Once the basic argument of the revenue that the housing projects with commercial use .....

Therefore, it was not open to the Tribunal to hold that prior to 1.4.2005, projects having commercial user upto10% of the plot area alone would be eligible for section 80IB(10) deduction. 28. In the present case, though the commercial user is more than 10% of the plot area, the Tribunal has allowed section 80IB(10) deduction in respect of 15 residential buildings on the ground that the profits from these exclusively residential buildings could be determined on stand along basi .....

s entitled to section 80IB(10) deduction on the entire project approved by the local authority. However, the assessee has not challenged the decision of the Tribunal in restricting the deduction to a part of the project. Therefore, while holding that in law, the assessee was entitled to section 80IB(10) deduction on the profits of the entire project, in the facts of the present case, since the assessee has not challenged the decision of the Tribunal, we are not inclined to disturb to disturb the .....

Thus, in our opinion, the decision of Hon'ble Jurisdictional High Court in Brahma Associates (supra) does not come to the rescue of the Revenue." 22. Following the aforesaid precedent, we, therefore, hold that merely because the assessee has violated the condition u/s. 80 IB(10)(c ) in relatio .....

onsidered opinion, our decision in the aforesaid paragraph fully applies. Though in A.Y. 2005-06, the definition of 'built-up area' as per Section 80 IB (14)(a) was on Statute, but, admittedly, assessee's project was approved and commenced prior to 1.4.2005, therefore, the calculation of 'built- up area' shall not be governed by such definition. Therefore, for the A.Y. 2005-06 also, the project DSK Frangipani is eligible for deduction u/s. 80 IB(10), albeit on a proportionate .....

In the present case, the only controversy is in respect of clause (c) of section 80IB(10) of the Act which prescribes that the built up area of the residential unit should not exceed 1500 sq.ft. where such residential unit is situated in the city of Pune. In the present case, the project of the assessee has 83 different flats out of which it was noticed that Flat N .....

Further, it is also noticeable from para 5.2 of the order of the CIT(A) that they have been booked by the customers and sold individually under separate agreements.

The appellant has no control on what the purchaser does in his flat after the possession is handed over. No evidence is brought on record by the A.O. to show that the appellant has artificially given two flat numbers to one single flat.

If each residential unit does not exceed the built-up area of 1500 sq.ft. as per approved plan, the fact that they were joined together by the flat holders for better living or for more space or for any other reason does not disentitle the appellant to the claim for deduction under section 80-IB, particularly when these changes in the flats were made after handing over possess .....
