                                    ORDER
Per N. K. Saini, AM:

      This is an appeal by the department against the order dated
28.03.2013 of CIT(A)-XXX, New Delhi.

2.    The only effective ground raised in this appeal reads as under:
     "On the facts and in the circumstances of the case, the Ld.
     CIT(A) has erred in allowing of Rs. 12,12,500/- out of total
     addition of Rs. 13,40,500/- made u/s 68 of the I. T Act by the
     AO on account of unexplained cash credits by holding that
     the said cash credits were assessee's turnover of business to
     be taxes u/s 44AF of the I.T. Act by taking a net profit @ 8%
     at Rs. 1,28,000/- by ignoring the material fact that no such
     income from business was declared by the assessee in his
     return of income."
                                      2                      ITA No. 3493/Del/2013
                                                                  Shobhit Tyagi




3.    The facts of the case in brief are that the assessee filed his return of
income declaring an income of Rs. 6,00,540/- on 31.07.2009 which was
processed u/s 143(1) of the I.T Act, 1961 (hereinafter referred to as the
Act) on 30.04.2010. Later on the case was selected for scrutiny. The AO
noticed that the assessee deposited Rs. 13,40,500/- upto 31.03.2009 in the
Punjab National Bank. He asked the assessee to produce the bank pass
book with narration. The assessee furnished the bank pass book and stated
that he started some short of handloom and wooden items business which
was operated from house and looked after by his wife. It was further stated
that the business was not profitable hence it was closed and the cash
withdrawals & deposits were related to that business. The AO was not
satisfied from the submissions of the assessee and observed that the
assessee was bank employee and that no such income was shown in the
return of income. He, therefore, added a sum of Rs. 13,40,500/-.

4.    Being aggrieved the assessee carried the matter to the ld. CIT(A) and
submitted as under:
     "That while framing assessment during the year under
     consideration the Ld. AO has framed took the view of his
     wrong conceptions, notions and without applying his legitimate
     mind and added Rs. 13,40,500/- to the income of the assessee
     which was deposited in to bank account no.
     04496000100029698 maintained with the Punjab National
     Bank, Vikas Puri Branch, New Delhi copy of the same has
     already been placed on record with your goodself. It is also
     worth stating here that the Appellant/Assessee made full
     disclosures during the course of the proceedings of the
     assessment and had submitted that the he had started a small
                                      3                      ITA No. 3493/Del/2013
                                                                  Shobhit Tyagi

     business of handloom and small wooden items operated from
     the house and the same was looked after by his wife. The
     business was not profitable hence the same was discontinued
     by the Appellant/assessee. All the purchases were made from
     the Panipat which is near to Saharanpur, the wife of the
     Appellant/assessee had been looking after the said business
     and all the cash payments has been withdrawn from
     Saharanpur. It's further pertinent to mention here that the Ld.
     AO did not apply his legitimate mind and added all such cash
     deposits in the income of the Appellant/assessee and taxed the
     same. Now at this stage the assessee submits and offers, to end
     up the issue and buy peace of mind, the said cash credits may
     be taken at Rs. 16,00,000/- (Rs. Sixteen Lac) to be treated as its
     turnover of business and be taxed under section 44AF of the
     Income Tax Act taking a net profit @ 8% which comes to Rs.
     1,28,000/-."

5.    After considering the submissions of the assessee, the ld. CIT(A)
observed that the assessee started a small business of handloom and small
wooden items operated from the house which was looked after by his wife
and the assessee to buy peace of mind surrendered Rs. 1,28,000/- @ 8% of
Rs. 16,00,000/-. The ld. CIT(A) confirmed the addition of Rs. 1,28,000/-
and deleted the remaining addition of Rs. 12,12,500/-. Now the department
is in appeal.

6.    We have considered the submissions of the ld. DR alongwith the
written submission furnished by the assessee. In the present case it is an
admitted fact that the various deposits totaling to Rs. 13,40,500/- were
made in the bank account of the assessee, detail of the same is given by the
AO at page nos. 1 to 7 of the assessment order dated 29.11.2011. The
                                      4                      ITA No. 3493/Del/2013
                                                                  Shobhit Tyagi




Explanation of the assessee regarding those deposits was that he was doing
small business in handicraft and wooden items which was looked after by
his wife from his house. All the cash payments had been withdrawn from
Saharanpur and utilized for making the purchases from Panipat which is
near to Saharanpur, therefore, the Explanation of the assessee appears to be
plausible. The assessee was doing the small business in handicraft and
wooden items which were purchased from Panipat (near to Saharanpur).
As the assessee was doing small business and the turnover was less than
Rs. 40,00,000/-, the assessee offered the income of the said business u/s
44AF of the Act on the estimated turnover of Rs. 16,00,000/- which was
more than Rs. 13,40,500/- deposited on various dates throughout the year
in the bank account. In our opinion the ld. CIT(A) rightly sustained the
addition of Rs. 1,28,000/- considering the same as profit @ 8% on the
turnover of Rs. 16,00,000/-. We do not see any infirmity in the order of the
CIT(A) and accordingly do not see any merit in this appeal of the
department.

7.    In the result, the appeal of the department is dismissed.
(Order pronounced in the open Court on 11/12/2014).
