       This is department's appeal for assessment year 2009-10 against the

order of ld.CIT(A) in directing the AO to allow deduction to the assessee u/s 80IB

(8A) of the Act on the basis of directions given by the ITAT in the order passed

for the assessment years 2004-05 to 2006-07.

2.     The operative portion of the ld.CIT(A)'s order is as follows:

      "2.3     The AO's order, the contentions of the appellant, and
                                       2                    I T A N o . 5 6 9 8 / Mu m / 2 0 1 3

      materials on record have been considered. Identical issue had
      come up in appeal in earlier years. In appeal order dated
      20/02/2012 in Appeal No. CIT(A)-16/DC-8(1)/IT-153/2011-12 for
      AY 2008-09, the CIT(A) held "l have carefully consider the contention
      of the appellant and also carefully gone through the documents available
      on record. I find that the claim of the appellant u/s.80IB(8A) was allowed
      by the Hon'ble Tribunal in the A. Y. 2004-05 to 2006-07 in the appellant's
      own case. Following the decision of the Hon'ble ITAT, the Ld.AO is
      directed to allow the claim of the appellant u/s. 80IB (8A)". Following
      the same finding, the AO is directed to allow the claim of the
      appellant u/ s 80IB(8A) in AY 2009-10".

3.    From the above, it is evident that the ld. CIT(A) has followed the First

Appellate Order for the AY 2008-09, wherein, the Tribunal order in the assessee's

own case for assessment years 2004-05 to 2006-07 was followed. It was in this

manner that the ld. CIT(A) directed the AO that the claim of under section

80IB(8A) of the assessee to be allowed, for the year under consideration.

4.    On the other hand, the ld. Counsel for the assessee has placed reliance on

the Tribunal orders passed in ITA No.4277/Mum/2011, dated 30.3.2012, in the

assessee's    own   case   for   the   assessment    year     2007-08,            in      ITA

No.4076/Mum/2009 for the assessment year 2006-07 in ITA, dated 30.4.2010, in

ITA No.2036/Mum/2008 for the assessment year 2005-06, dated 28.8.2008, and

in ITA No. in ITA No.1180/Mum/2008, for the assessment year 2004-05, dated


5.    Before us, the ld. DR has contended that the Tribunal's orders in the

assessee's own case for the assessment years 2004-05 to 2006-07, and passed

in ITA No.4277/Mum/2011, dated 30.3.2012 which were relied on by the ld

CIT(A) to allow the relief to the assessee, have been accepted by the

                                        3                   I T A N o . 5 6 9 8 / Mu m / 2 0 1 3

6.    Having considered the rival contentions, in the light of the material placed

on record, we find the matter to be covered in favour of the assessee by the

aforesaid Tribunal orders in the assessee's own case for the assessment years

2004-05 to 2007-08. In the order dated 20.8.2008, for the assessment year

2004-05, the Tribunal has held as under :

      "16. We have heard the rival submissions and perused the relevant
      material on record. Admittedly there is no cross appeal by the Revenue.
      So we need to examine only those aspects which 'weighed with the ld.
      CIT(A) for the denial or deduction. Sub section (8A) of section 8080IB,
      which is relevant for our purpose, reads as under :-

            "The amount of deduction in the case of any company carrying on
            scientific research and development shall be hundred per cent of
            the profits and gains of such business for a period of ten
            consecutive assessment years, beginning from the initial
            assessment year, if such company -

            (i)     is registered in India;
            ii)     has its main object the scientific and industrial research and
            (ii)    is for the time being approved by the prescribed. authority
                    at any time after the 31st day of March, 2000 but before the
                    1st day of April, 2007;

            (iii)   fulfills such other conditions as may be prescribed ."

      17. There remains no dispute on behalf of the Revenue qua the
      fulfillment of the above four conditions. The ld. CIT(A) has denied the
      benefit of deduction on the ground that the assessee has not satisfied the
      requirement of section 80IB(2)(iii) as it has not manufactured or produced
      any article not specified in the list given in the Eleventh Schedule. In the
      opinion of the ld. CIT(A), the assessee, ought to have met this
      requirement of manufacturing or producing any article, and since nothing
      was produced or manufactured by the assessee, he therefore, held that
      the deduction cannot be granted:

      18. Sub-section (1) of section80IB provides that where the gross total
      income of an assessee includes any' profits' and gains derived from any
      business referred to in sub-sections (3) to (11), (11A), and (11 B), there
      shall be allowed a deduction from such profits and gains of an amount
      equal to such percentage and for such number of' assessment years as is
      specified in this section subject to and in accordance with the provisions
                                   4                   I T A N o . 5 6 9 8 / Mu m / 2 0 1 3

of this section, Sub-section (2) deals with industrial undertakings which
are eligible for deduction and need to fulfill the conditions enshrined in
clauses (i) to (iv) of this sub-section. In other words, if the eligible
assessee is an industrial undertaking then it is incumbent upon-it to satisfy
all the 4 conditions cumulatively as specified in sub-section (2). On going
further we note that sub-section (3) provides deduction in the case of
case of industrial undertaking if it is a small scale industrial undertaking
and begins to manufacture articles or things during the period specified.
Similarly sub-section (4) again applies toan industrial undertaking which is
established in industrially backward state specified in the Eighth Schedule
Sub-section (5) also applies to industrial undertaking located in such
industrial backward districts as Central government may specify. Thus it
can be seen that sub-sections (3) to (5) permit deduction to industrial
undertakings fulfilling the requisite conditions and sub-section (2) opens
with the words: "This section applies to any industrial undertaking which
fulfills all the following conditions namely...." Going further we observe
that 'sub-sections '(6) to (8A) grant deduction to the assessee who are
not covered within the meaning of 'industrial undertakings', but are
engaged in other specified businesses. As can be seen that sub-section
(6) applies to an assessee who is engaged in the business of shipping.
Similarly sub-section (7) provides deduction to Hotels ; sub-section. (7A)
to Multiplex theatres ; sub- section (7B) to Convention centres and sub-
section (8A) to companies carrying on scientific research and
development. It is under this last sub-section that the assessee has been
granted approval by the Government of India. On going through the
scheme of section 80IB in totality, we· observe that the four conditions
stipulated under sub-section (2) are to be fulfilled only if the eligible
assessee is an industrial undertaking within the meaning of sub-
sections (3) to (5), as the case may be. If the assessee is not an
'industrial undertaking' but is otherwise eligible for deduction under any of
other sub-sections discussed above; then there is no requirement for
importing the conditions stipulated in sub-section '(2) which are applicable
to industrial undertakings, and requiring their satisfaction. Since the
instant assessee is engaged in the business of carrying out scientific
research and development and has been approved by the Government of
India for the benefit- of deduction u/s 80IB(8A) in our considered opinion
the conditions of sub- section (2) are not required to be fulfilled by it. The
ld.CIT(A) has interpreted section 80IB in an inconsistent manner so ,as to
cast such obligations on the assessee which have not been imposed by
the statute. We ,therefore, overturn the impugned order on this issue and
direct the Assessing Officer to allow deduction.

19. In the result, this appeal is partly allowed."
                                          5                 I T A N o . 5 6 9 8 / Mu m / 2 0 1 3

7.     It is this reasoning, which has been followed in the succeeding years by

the Tribunal. This reasoning of the Tribunal has not been shown to have been

either reversed, or even stayed on appeal. Therefore, respectfully following the

abovesaid Tribunal orders in the assessee's own case for the earlier years, the

order passed by the ld. CIT(A) for the year under consideration is upheld. The

grievance of the department by way of the grounds of appeal raised is found to

be shorn of merit. It rejected as such.

8.     In the result, the appeal of the department is dismissed.

             Pronounced accordingly on 7th Aug, 2015.
