unication dated 05.11.2014 in which the assessee interalia took the following objections: (i) That the claim of deduction under Section 10A of the Act which is the subject matter of reopening was scrutinized during the original assessment.

Upon perusal of the file, we notice that the audit party had raised an objection of the freight and insurance charges being included in the export turnover for computation of benefit under Section 10A of the Act.
