     (Appellant)                                      (Respondent)

       Assessee by : Sh. V.S. Rastogi, AR
       Department by: Sh. T. Vasanthan, Sr. DR

                                          Date of hearing: 07.05.2015
                                          Date of pronouncement: 10.06.2015

                                      ORDER

PER INTURI RAMA RAO, A.M.:

         This is an appeal for the assessment year 2005-06 filed by the assessee

company against the order of learned CIT(A), dated 26.08.2013 on the following

grounds of appeal:

  i.     That the orders passed by the Assessing Officer and Commissioner of
         Income Tax (Appeals)-XXXIII, New Delhi are bad in law and void ab-
         initio.
 ii.     That on the facts and circumstances of the case and in law, the
         Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals)-XXXIII, New Delhi erred in
         confirming the addition of Rs.l,73,262/- as deemed dividend u/s 2(22)(e)
         of the IT Act.
iii.     That both the Assessing Officer and the Commissioner of Income Tax
         (Appeals)-XXXIII, New Delhi misread the directions given by the Hon'
         ble Income Tax Appellate Tribunal in their order dated 06.04.2010 in ITA
         No. 3556/DEL/09 for making the fresh assessment and resultantly treating
         the sum of Rs. l,73,262/- as deemed dividend u/s 2(22)(e) of the IT Act all
         over again.
                                        2




iv.   That both the Assessing Officer and the Commissioner of Income Tax
      (Appeals)-XXXIII, New Delhi erred in confirming the addition of
      Rs.173262/- on account of deemed dividend u/s 2(22)(e) despite the fact
      that M/s IAG Promoters and Developers Pvt. Ltd is not a shareholder of
      M/s Countrywide Promoters Pvt. Ltd , the addition of Rs. l,73,262/- as
      dividend u/s 2(22)(e) of the IT Act was unwarranted in view of the
      judgment of Hon'ble Jurisdictional Delhi High Court in CIT vs. Ankitech
      Pvt. Ltd 2011 11 taxmann.com 100 Delhi.
 v.   The appellant craves permission to add, amend, alter or vary all or any
      grounds of appeal on or before the date of hearing of the appeal.

2.    Briefly stated facts of the case are that the return of income for the

assessment year 2005-06 was filed on 31st October, 2005, declaring total income

at Rs. 39,04,210/-. The return was processed under Section 143(1) of the

Income-tax Act, 1961 (for short "the Act") and subsequently the case was

selected for scrutiny. The assessment was completed by the Deputy

Commissioner of Income Tax, Circle-11, New Delhi on 28.12.2007 at a total

income of Rs. 8,98,94,480/-. While doing so, the Assessment Officer made

additions of Rs. 84,993/- and Rs. 1,73,261/- on account of deemed dividend

under Section 2(22)(e) of the Act. The short facts leading to these additions are

that the appellant company received loans of Rs. 23 lakhs and Rs. 4.01 crores

from M/s Triangle Builders & Promoters Pvt. Ltd. and M/s Countrywide

Promoters Pvt. Ltd. respectively. The appellant reflected these transactions in its

balance sheet as loan received during the year. The Assessing Officer was of the

opinion that these are covered by the scope of the provisions of Section 2(22)(e)

of the Act to the extent of accumulated profits of Rs. 84,993/-           and Rs.

1,73,261/- respectively. On appeal, the CIT(A) upheld the addition of a Rs.

1,73,261/-, however, deleted the addition of Rs. 84,993/-. Aggrieved by this
                                        3

order, the appellant filed an appeal before the ITAT, Delhi Bench, who vide

order dated 06.04.2010 in ITA No. 3556/Del/2009 set aside the issue of addition

of Rs. 1,73,262/- under Section 2(22)(e) of the Act to the file of Assessing

Officer for re-examination. Pursuant to this direction of the Tribunal, the order

under Section 143(3) read with Section 254 of the Act was passed vide order

dated 29.12.2011, wherein the addition of Rs. 1,73,262/- was again made on the

ground that the appellant had failed to furnish the status of the addition made in

M/s Fragrance Construction Pvt. Ltd. Aggrieved by this addition, an appeal was

filed before the CIT(A) who vide order dated 26.08.2013 dismissed the appeal.

Aggrieved by that order of CIT(A), the appellant had come up before us with the

present appeal.

3.    The learned Authorized Representative vehemently argued that the

provisions of Section 2(22)(e) of the Act have no application to the case,

inasmuch as, the appellant is not a shareholder of M/s Countrywide Promoters

Pvt. Ltd. having an interest of 10% per annum in the said company. In support

of this, the appellant filed a list of shareholders of M/s Countrywide Promoters

Pvt. Ltd. vide page 16 of the paper book. When the appellant company is not a

registered shareholder of M/s Countrywide Promoters Pvt. Ltd., the provisions

of Section 2(22)(e) of the Act have no application to the appellant. In support of

this, the learned AR has relied upon the decision of Hon'ble Delhi High Court in

the case of CIT Vs. Ankitech Pvt. Ltd, 340 ITR 14 (Del.)

4.    On the other hand, the learned Departmental Representative strongly

relied upon the orders of the authorities below.
                                         4




5.    We have heard the rival submissions and perused the material on record.

Undisputedly, the appellant is not a shareholder of M/s Countrywide Promoters

Pvt. Ltd. It is trite law that the provisions of Section 2(22)(e) have no application

to non-registered shareholders. The Hon'ble Apex Court in the case of CIT Vs.

C.P. Sarathy Mudaliar (1972) 83 ITR 170 (SC) while construing the provisions

of Section 2(6A)(e) of the Act, 1922 which are in pari materia with the

provisions of Section 2(22)(e) of the Income-tax Act, 1961, held that            the

provisions governing the deemed dividend can be made applicable only in the

hands of the registered shareholders. Since, admittedly, in the present case, the

appellant is not a shareholder of M/s Countrywide Promoters Pvt. Ltd. the

amount of Rs. 1,73,262/- cannot be taxed in the hands of the appellant company.

Hence the appeal filed by the assessee is allowed.

6.    In the result, the appeal is allowed.

      The decision is pronounced in the open court on 10th June, 2015.
