                          ORDER

PER BRR KUMAR, AM:

                               GROUNDS OF APPEAL


         1.      That the Commissioner of Income-tax (Appeals) erred on
         facts and in law in upholding the disallowance of depreciation to
         the tune of Rs. 2,82,426 on vehicles (i.e., bus/tempo traveller), on
         the ground that such vehicles were not used for commercial
         purposes.
         1.1.    That the Commissioner of Income-tax (Appeals) erred on
         facts and in law in not appreciating that the vehicles were used by
         the appellant purely for commercial purposes and thereby,
         depreciation @ 50% was rightly claimed.
         1.2.    That the Commissioner of Income-tax (Appeals) erred on
                                            2


            facts and in law in not appreciating that the business of the
            assessee is of transport (carrying the staff for different companies)
            and therefore the disputed vehicles i.e. Bus and Tempo Traveller
            are Commercial Vehicles.
            1.3.    That the Commissioner of Income-tax (Appeals) erred on
            facts and in law in holding the view taken by A.O. that commercial
            vehicles cannot be hiring vehicles.
            1.4.    That the Commissioner of Income-tax (Appeals) erred on
            fact and in law in holding that the appellant failed to substantiate
            that the aforesaid vehicles were used for commercial purposes.
            1.5.    That the commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals) has
            wrongly mentioned that no evidence has been filed to show the
            vehicles are commercial in nature is totally wrong as copy of
            receipt of passenger tax /road permit mentioning the vehicles as
            Commercial were produced and were put on record.







1.    The moot issue to be adjudicated in this case is that whether the
depreciation claimed by the assessee at the rate of 50% as pleaded before us
is allowable as per the provisions of the Income Tax Act or not.


2.    The Ld. CIT(A) confirmed the additions made by the AO on the
grounds that the depreciation on
(a) Bus- 1986
(b) Tempo Traveller- 7344
was to be allowed only at the rate of 30%. The Ld. CIT(A) held while
confirming the addition (or) restricting the depreciation that no documentary
evidence was produced by the assessee at the assessment stage to show that
the vehicles were "commercial" as per the definition and no such claim was
made before the AO.


3.    On perusal of the documents filed before us in the paper book namely
the Registration certificate and the insurance policy and by the very nature
of the vehicle i.e. bus and tempo traveller, we find that they straightly fall
under the definition of commercial vehicles and eligible for 50% depreciation
as per part B of the depreciation table wherein it has been clearly mentioned
that new commercial vehicles which are acquired on or after first day of
                                      3


January, 2009 but before the first day of April, 2009 and is put to use before
the first day of April, 2009 for the purpose of business or profession are
eligible for depreciation at the rate of 50%. (Vide notification no. 10/2009
dated 19.01.2009 w.e.f. 01.09.2009). Commercial vehicle is defined in the
notes to the Depreciation table as under:
"3A. Commercial vehicle means heavy goods vehicle, heavy passenger motor
vehicle, light motor vehicle, medium goods vehicle and medium passenger
motor vehicle but does not include maxi-cab, motor-cab, tractor and road-
roller. The expressions heavy goods vehicle, heavy passenger motor vehicle,
light motor vehicle, medium goods vehicle, medium passenger motor vehicle,
maxi-cab, motor-cab, tractor and road-roller shall have the meanings
respectively as assigned to them in section 2 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988
(59 of 1988)."







4.    Hence, keeping in view the provisions of the Act, depreciation is
hereby allowed at the rate of 50% on the two vehicles.


5.    As a result, the appeal of the assessee is allowed.


      Order pronounced in the open Court on 11.04.2019.
