      (Appellant)                         (Respondent)

              Appellant by      :     Ms. Y. Kakkar, Sr.DR.
              Respondent by     :     None.


       This appeal by the Revenue is directed against the order of
learned CIT(A), Ghaziabad dated 7th November, 2012 for the AY 2008-

2.     Ground No.1 of the Revenue's appeal reads as under:-

       "The ld.CIT(A) has erred in law & on facts by deleting the
       addition of Rs.12,31,850/- without appreciating the fact
       that assessee has failed to discharge its onus to prove the
       identity, creditworthiness and genuineness of the

3.     Ground No.2 is only arguments in support of above ground of

4.     At the time of hearing before us, none appeared on behalf of the
assessee despite the service of notice by registered post. Therefore,
we proceed to decide the appeal ex-parte qua the assessee.
                                    2                          ITA-636/Del/2013

5.    We have heard the arguments of learned DR and perused
relevant material placed before us. The Assessing Officer disallowed
20% of the creditors with the following finding in the assessment

      "Creditors :
              As per return of income you have shown nett. Income
      at Rs.227140/- against turnover Rs.2,13,96,205/- resultant
      N.P. is almost @ 1.06% which is very low for an export
      business concern and Commission income at Rs.28,945,
      interest income at Rs.21,917/- and other income at
      Rs.19,13,425/-.        You have shown creditors for
      Rs.56,90,895/- and loans for Rs.4,68,375/- (=61,59,270/-).
      Business cannot be run without any credit. Creditors are
      an inevitable part of business.          You have failed to
      discharge your onus of proving the creditors/loans. In
      absence of any details it is not possible to ascertain the
      identity, creditworthiness of the creditors/loans and
      genuineness of the transaction. To be prudent it would be
      fair if only 20% of the creditors/loans i.e. Rs.12,31,850/- are
      considered as not verifiable and added to your income.
      (Proposed addition Rs.12,31,850/-)."

6.    Learned CIT(A) deleted the addition.      The Revenue, aggrieved
with the order of learned CIT(A), is in appeal before us.

7.    After considering the arguments of learned DR and the facts of
the case, we do not find any justification to interfere with the order of
learned CIT(A).   The Assessing Officer himself has recorded that the
turnover of the assessee is more than `2 crores and in the business,
creditors are an inevitable part. However, despite observing this, he
proceeded to add 20% of the creditors/loan as unverifiable. We are
unable to accept any justification for the presumption that 20% of the
creditors are not verifiable. The addition for unexplained cash credit, if
any, can be made for a specific creditor and there cannot be a lump
sum or adhoc addition of certain percentage of the creditors.
                                   3                           ITA-636/Del/2013

Moreover, on page 19 paragraph 5.3, the CIT(A) has recorded the
following finding:-

      "During appeal, the appellant has contended that all the
      un-secured loans are old loans and the same is apparent
      from balance sheet and its ledger accounts. Thus, I agree
      that appellant's contention that no addition can be made in
      respect of un-secured loans which are only brought forward
      balances from earlier years."

8.    From the above, it is evident that all the unsecured loans are old
loans and, therefore, no addition can be made in this year in respect of
brought forward balance of those years.      In view of the above, we
uphold the order of learned CIT(A) and dismiss the appeal filed by the

9.    In the result, the appeal of the Revenue is dismissed.
      Decision pronounced in the open Court on 29th August, 2014.
