     by the Ld. Commissioner of Income-tax (Appeals) -34, New Delhi [hereinafter
     referred to as "the CIT(A)"] is bad at law and void ab initio.
     2. That on the facts and in circumstances of the case, the Ld. CIT(A) erred in
                                             2                   ITA NO. 4447/Del/2019







     upholding the disallowance to the tune of Rs. 55,69,690/ out of contractual
     services expenses being contingent in nature and disallowed under the
     provision of section 40(a)(ia) of the Act.
     3. That on the facts and in circumstances of the case, the Ld. CIT(A) erred in
     upholding the disallowance of restructuring expenses of Rs. 1,07,75,000/

     4.1.       That on the facts and in circumstances of the case, the Ld. CIT(A)

     26,65,716 being contingent in nature.
     4.2        That on the facts and in circumstances of the case, the Ld.CIT(A)
     erred in upholding the disallowance of provision of warranty cost of Rs.
     26,65,716/- being contingent in nature.
     5.1        All the above mentioned grounds are independent and without
     prejudice to other; and
     5.2.       That the appellant carves the right to add, alter, amend and delete
     the ground(s) of appeal during hearing.


3.         The assessee company is engaged in the business of manufacturing and
sale of Air treatment equipment and particularly air handling units.             The
company is also engaged in the business of system solution being operated
form Kolkata office. Return declaring total loss of Rs.1,64,64,017/- was filed
on 28/11/2014. The Assessing Officer completed the assessment u/s 143(3)
vide order dated 2/11/2016 after making addition on account of contractual
service expenses at Rs. 55,69,690/-, restricting expenses Rs. 1,07,75,000/-

5.    None appeared on behalf of the assessee and there is no adjournment
application on behalf of the assessee.      The notice has been served to the
assessee. Therefore, we are taking up the submissions of the assessee before
the CIT(A) as well as before the Assessing Officer.


6.    The Ld. DR relied upon the assessment order and the order of the CIT(A).







7.    We have heard the Ld. DR and perused the material available on record.
From the order of the Assessing Officer as well as the CIT(A) it is pertinent to
note that the Assessing Officer     as well as the CIT(A)   has not taken the
cognizance of any evidence       produced by the assessee before the revenue
authorities. There is no reason given by the CIT(A) as to why the addition has
to be sustained. Therefore, it will be appropriate to remand back all the issues
contested by the assessee to the file of the CIT(A) for fresh adjudication.
Needless to say, the assessee be given opportunity of hearing by following
principles of natural justice.


8.    In result, the appeal of the assessee is partly allowed for statistical
purpose.
       Order pronounced in the Open Court on 19th           March, 2020.
