                              Revenue by      :   Shri Kishan Vyas
                        Date of hearing  : 23.09.2014
                   Date of Pronouncement : 23.09.2014
                                        ORDER

PER DR. S.T.M. PAVALAN, JM:

      This appeal filed by the Assessee is directed against the order of the
Ld.CIT(A)-4, Mumbai dated 29.06.2007 for the Assessment Year 2000-01.

2.    In this appeal, the assessee has agitated the decision of the Ld.CIT(A) in
confirming the action of the AO disallowing the business loss and the bad debts
written off claimed by the assessee. Also, the assessee vide an application dated
30.09.2013, has filed the additional ground of appeal which relate to the validity of
the assessment made u/s 153A of the Income Tax Act. After going through the
additional ground filed by the assessee, it is noted that the same is a legal ground
which does not require any new facts to be brought on record. In view of the
decision of the Hon'ble Apex Court in the case of National Thermal Power Company
Ltd. Vs. CIT (1998) 229 ITR 383, the legal ground raised by the assessee is
admitted.
3. Having heard both the sides and perused the material on record, it is a matter of fact that search and seizure action u/s 132 of the Act has been carried out in the SSKI group on 02.08.2003 and the assessee has also been covered under search, ITA No. 5174/Mum/2007 2 Monoplan Securities Pvt. Ltd. Assessment Year: 2000-01 which has been concluded on 03.08.2003. It is observed that in respect of the original return of income filed by the assessee on 30.11.2000 for the Assessment Year under consideration, the intimation u/s 143(1) of the Act has been issued, however, no notice u/s 143(2) of the Act has been served by the AO. It is pertinent to mention that the assessment for the said assessment year has attained finality before the date of search hence the assessment in the case does not abate. It is pertinent to mention that the Special Bench of the Tribunal in the case of All Cargo Global Logistic Ltd. Vs. DCIT 137 ITD 287 (Mum)(SB) has held that the crucial facts to be recorded in such cases is that whether assessment or re-assessment has been pending at the time of search carried out or in the course of assessment proceedings initiated u/s 153A. Applying the said test to the case in hand, the assessment for the year under consideration has attained finality and therefore the AO does not have any jurisdiction to review the assessments which have attained finality. Further, the Rajasthan High Court in the case of Jai Steel (India) Vs. ACIT 88 DTR (Raj) has held that in case nothing incriminating is found on account of search or requisition, the question of reassessment of the concluded assessment does not arise. It has further been held that the underlying purpose of making assessment of total income u/s 153A is to assess income which is not disclosed or would not have been disclosed. Second proviso to section 153A providing for abatement of assessment or reassessment, which is applicable only in proceedings pending on the date of search or requisition for the reason that there cannot be two assessments for a single assessment year. The same view is fortified by the decision of the Hon'ble Bombay High Court in the case of CIT Vs. M/s Murali Agro Products vide its order dated 29.10.2010 in IT appeal No 36 of 2009. It is also a settled position of law that reassessment is permitted in an assessment u/s 153A, only if incriminating material is found during the course of search. In the case in hand, the question is whether any incriminating material has been found in the course of search relating to the additions made. The Revenue could not show any incriminating material found in the course of search which would warrant the impugned additions. Therefore, we are of the considered opinion that there is no justification for the authorities below to consider the issues in the assessment passed u/s 153A. In view of that matter, both the additions made in the impugned assessment order are not justified. ITA No. 5174/Mum/2007 3 Monoplan Securities Pvt. Ltd. Assessment Year: 2000-01 Consequently, the orders of the authorities below making/confirming the disallowances made in respect of the assessment year under consideration stands quashed. 4. In the result, the appeal filed by the assessee is allowed. Order pronounced in the open court on this 23rd day of September, 2014. Sd/- Sd/- (B.R. BASKARAN) (Dr. S.T.M.
