                                       ORDER

PER H.L.KARWA, PRESIDENT

      This appeal filed by the assessee is directed against the Order of the
CIT(A)-XXI, Mumbai dated 15th March, 2001 relating to the assessment
year 1998-99. The only ground raised by the assessee in this appeal reads
as under :

      "The CIT(A)-XXI, Mumbai erred in holding that the Assessing Officer
      had rightly computed the deduction u/s. 80HHC at Rs.2,10,61,375/-
      as against Rs.2,13,85,204/- computed by the appellant. The said
      CIT(A) failed in not appreciating that in the computation of deduction
      u/s 80HHC the indirect cost should have been reduced by the indirect
      cost allocated to export incentive (10% of gross export incentive income)
      and the net amount of indirect cost should have been deducted from
      the income to arrive at the profit from exports. The appellant submits
      that the earning of export incentive also involves certain expenditure
      which have been fixed at the adhoc figure of 10% of such income and
      therefore out of the total indirect cost incurred by the appellant, that
      portion of the expenses allocated to earning of export incentive, should
      be reduced from the indirect expenses incurred in running the export
      business."
                                            2

2.    At the very outset, Ms. Sheetal Shah, Learned Counsel for the
assessee pointed out that the issue is squarely covered in favour of the
assessee and against the Revenue by the decision of I.T.A.T. "J" Bench,
Mumbai     dated    14th    July,    2002       in   assessee's   own     case     in
ITA.4370/Mum/2000 relating to assessment year 1997-1998. The
Tribunal while deciding the identical issue held as under :

      "The learned representative of the assessee submitted before us that in
      computation of deduction he indirect cost should have been reduced by
      the indirect cost allocated to export incentive and net amount of indirect
      cost should have been deducted from the income to arrive at the profit
      from export. It was further submitted that the earning of export
      incentive also involves certain expenditure which have been fixed at the
      adhoc figure of 10% of such income and therefore, out of the total
      indirect cost the portion of the expenses allocated to earning of support
      incentive should be reduced from the indirect expenses relating to the
      export business. To support the contention, the learned A.R. carried us
      to the computation part in the assessee's paper book page 4 and 4A.
      He further argued that the disallowance of entire indirect cost of not
      justifiable. He, besides reitering arguments that were advanced before
      the authorities relied on the decision of Mumbai Tribunal `E' Bench in
      ITA.No. 155/Mum/97 dated 16.03.2001 contained in the assessee's
      paper book page no. 16 & 17 and another I.T.A.T. decision of Mumbai
      `B' Bench in I.T.A.No. 1916/Mum/99 dated 8.10.2001 and also yet
      another Mumbai SMC-4 decision in ITA.No. 5348/Mum/2001 dated
      15.1.2002. In sum and substance the Tribunal has agreed that the
      indirect cost should be reduced of such expenses of 10% as contended
      by the assessee. The facts being similar and we are in the view that
      the Tribunal order squarely applicable in the case present before us. On
      the other hand the learned D.R. supported the order of the authorities
      and he relied upon the case law of Raj Exports which is not directly on
      this issue, it relates to the validity of the order under section 154. We,
      therefore reject the arguments of learned D.R. and we are in full
      agreement with the contention of the assessee. Therefore, we decide
      this ground in favour of the assessee thereby set aside the order of the
                                           3




      CIT(A) and direct the Assessing Officer to allow 10% of the indirect cost
      as discussed above."


3.    I find that the issue is identical and therefore, respectfully following
the Order of the Tribunal (supra), I allow the appeal of the assessee.

4.    I may also add here that the view taken by the Tribunal in
assessee's case is also supported by the decision of the Hon'ble Supreme
Court in the case of Hero Exports vs. CIT (2007) 295 ITR 454 (S.C.).

5.    In the result, appeal of the assessee is allowed.

      Pronounced in the open Court, on 01st October, 2012.
