THE LD.COUNSEL FOR THE ASSESSEE ON THE OTHER HA ND HAS PLACED STRONG RELIANCE ON THE IMPUGNED ORDER. IT HAS BEEN CONTEN DED THAT THE ASSESSEE HAD NOT FURNISHED ANY INACCURATE PARTICULARS OF ITS INC OME. ATTENTION HAS BEEN DRAWN TO PAGE 122 OF THE ASSESSEES PAPER BOOK (APB F OR SHORT). THIS PAGE CONTAINS PARA.28(A) OF THE TAX AUDIT REPORT. IT HAS BEEN PO INTED OUT THAT THE AUDITORS OF THE ASSESSEE COMPANY HAVE STATED THAT THE ASSESSEE HAS NOT MAINTAINED STOCK REGISTER. THEN ATTENTION HAS BEEN DRAWN TO APB 53 I.E. THE LEDGER ACCOUNT OF M/S SHARMA TRADERS AND APB 54-55 A COPY OF THE LED GER ACCOUNT OF M/S RAMA ENTERPRISES FROM 01.4.2002 TO 31.3.2006. FROM TH IS IT HAS BEEN POINTED OUT THAT THE PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE THROUGH BANK THE DE TAILS OF WHICH PAYMENT ARE CONTAINED IN THIS LEDGER ACCOUNT. IT HAS BEEN CONT ENDED THAT THE PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE IN THE NEXT YEAR. ATTENTION IN THIS REGA RD HAS BEEN DRAWN TO APB 56- 63 WHICH IS A COPY OF BANK STATEMENT OF THE ASSESS EE COMPANY SHOWING PAYMENTS MADE TO M/S SHARMA TRADERS AND M/S RAMA EN TERPRISES. APB 51-52 IS A COPY OF THE REPLY DATED 11.2.2009 FILED BY THE ASSESSEE WITH THE AO IN THE PENALTY PROCEEDINGS. IT HAS BEEN CONTENDED THAT AL L THE AFORESAID EVIDENCES WERE DULY FILED BY THE ASSESSEE BEFORE THE AO. IT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED THAT HOWEVER THE AO DID NOT CONSIDER THE EVIDENCE SO FU RNISHED BY THE ASSESSEE. IT HAS ALSO BEEN CONTENDED THAT PENALTY PROCEEDINGS AR E DISTINCT FROM ASSESSMENT PROCEEDINGS AND THE EVIDENCE HAVING BEEN FURNISHED IN THE PENALTY PROCEEDINGS OUGHT TO HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED WHICH WAS NOT DONE. IT HAS BEEN STATED THAT ALL THE EVIDENCE HAVING BEEN SO FURNISHED THERE WAS NO CASE OF CONCEALMENT AND THE ASSESSEE DID NOT FURNISH ANY INACCURATE PARTICU LARS OF ITS INCOME. IT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED THAT THE CIT(A) HAS PASSED A PERFECTLY LE GAL ORDER WHICH IS ENTITLED TO BE SUSTAINED BY DISMISSING THE APPEAL FILED BY THE DEPARTMENT. 9. WE HAVE HEARD BOTH THE PARTIES HAVE PERUSED THE MATERIAL ON RECORD. THE QUESTION IS AS TO WHETHER THE CIT(A) HAS CORRECTLY DELETED THE CONCEALMENT PENALTY IMPOSED ON THE ASSESSEE. WE DO NOT FIND AN Y ERROR IN THE ORDER OF THE CIT(A). THERE IS NOTHING EITHER IN THE ASSESSMENT ORDER OR IN THE PENALTY ORDER THAT THE ASSESSEE HAD RECORDED THE BOGUS PURCHASES OF RS.596 450. IT HAS NOT BEEN DISPUTED THAT IN THE NATURE OF BUSINESS OF THE ASSESSEE COMPANY I..E. MANUFACTURE AND EXPORT OF AUTOMOTIVE COMPONENTS QU ANTITATIVE DETAILS COULD NOT BE MANAGED. THAT BEING SO IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE FOR THE ASSESSEE TO KEEP A STOCK REGISTER. MOREOVER THE AUDITORS OF THE ASSESSEE C OMPANY HAD ALSO DECLARED THIS FACT IN THE TAX AUDIT REPORT. NOT ONLY THIS THE A O HAD REJECTED THE MANUFACTURING RESULT OF THE ASSESSEE ONLY QUA A PART OF ITS BUSIN ESS. THE ADDITION OF RS.596 450 WAS MADE ON ALLEGED BOGUS PURCHASES MADE BY THE ASSESSEE FROM M/S SHARMA TRADERS AND M/S RAMA ENTERPRISES. THE O THER ADDITIONS ON THE OTHER HAND HAD BEEN MADE SEPARATELY. FURTHER THE AO REJECTED THE PURCHASE BILLS PRODUCED BY THE ASSESSEE MERELY ON THE BASIS THAT THEY DID NOT BEAR TELEPHONE NUMBER OR SALES-TAX NUMBER NOTHING ELSE WAS BROUGHT ON RECORD TO PROVE THAT THESE BILLS WERE BOGUS. THE CIT(A) HAS RIGHTLY OBSERVED THAT THESE ALLEGED DISCREPANCIES IN THE BILLS WERE MERE IRREGU LARITIES WHICH TOO COULD NOT HAVE BEEN ATTRIBUTED TO THE ASSESSEE BUT TO THE TW O CREDITOR PARTIES I.E. M/S SHARMA TRADERS AND M/S RAMA ENTERPRISES. ALSO BY THEMSELVES THESE SHORTCOMINGS IN THE PURCHASE BILLS DO NOT GO TO PR OVE THAT THE PURCHASES WERE NOT GENUINE. WHEN IN ITS REPLY BEFORE AO THE ASSE SSEE HAD STATED THAT THE PURCHASES HAD IN FACT BEEN MADE FROM THESE PARTIES THE RIGHT COURSE FOR THE AO WOULD HAVE BEEN TO MAKE FURTHER ENQUIRIES FROM THE PARTIES. THIS HOWEVER WAS NOT DONE. THE ASSESSEE HAD FURNISHED THE LEDGER AC COUNTS OF THE PARTIES FOR THE SUBSEQUENT TWO ASSESSMENT YEARS EVIDENCING THE PAY MENTS HAVING BEEN MADE TO THEM AND THEREBY ESTABLISHING THE GENUINENESS O F THE TRANSACTIONS. THE AO HOWEVER DID NOT DEEM IT NECESSARY TO TAKE THESE LE DGER ACCOUNTS INTO CONSIDERATION AND TO VERIFY THEM. STRIKINGLY WHEN THE NOTICES ISSUED TO THE PARTIES WERE RETURNED TO THE AO NO ADVERSE INFEREN CE WAS DRAWN. NO FURTHER QUESTION WAS ASKED OF THE ASSESSEE. THE ASSESSEE H AD FURNISHED BANK STATEMENTS BEFORE THE AO IN THE PENALTY PROCEEDINGS . AGAIN HOWEVER THE AO MADE NO VERIFICATION OF THE ENTRIES IN SUCH BANK AC COUNTS. THE NATURE OF PURCHASES WAS ALSO NOT CONFRONTED TO THE ASSESSEE B Y THE AO EITHER IN THE ASSESSMENT PROCEEDINGS OR IN THE PENALTY PROCEEDIN GS. UNDISPUTEDLY THE ACCOUNTS OF THE ASSESSEE WERE DULY AUDITED AS PER T HE COMPANIES ACT AND ALSO AS PER THE INCOME TAX ACT PROVIDING A PRESUMPTION THAT THE MANUFACTURING RESULTS RECORDED THEREIN HAD BEEN RECORDED PROPERLY . THE TAX AUDIT REPORT WAS NOWHERE DISPUTED BY THE AO. IN FACT THE AO HIMSEL F ACCEPTED THE OTHER PURCHASES/ACCOUNTS SHOWN BY THE ASSESSEE. THESE WE RE BASED ON THE TAX AUDIT REPORT. THE FACTUM OF THE ASSESSEE HAVING NOT CHAL LENGED THE ADDITION OF RS.596 450 BY ITSELF IS OF NO CONSEQUENCE SO FAR AS REGARDS THE LEVY OF PENALTY. PENALTY PROCEEDINGS ARE SEPARATE AND INDEPENDENT FR OM ASSESSMENT PROCEEDINGS AND THE REQUIREMENT OF FURNISHING OF IN ACCURATE PARTICULARS HAS TO BE INDEPENDENTLY ESTABLISHED WHICH HAS NOT BEEN DONE HEREIN. THE ADDITION WAS NOT CHALLENGED SO AS TO AVOID LITIGATION AND TO BUY PEACE. MOREOVER AGAIN UNDISPUTEDLY DUE TAXES ON THE ADDITION STAND PAID. THE REQUIREMENT OF SECTION 271(1)(C) IS THAT THE AO HAS TO BE SATISFIED OF THE ASSESSEE HAVING FURNISHED INACCURATE PARTICULARS OF INCOME. THIS REQUIREMENT DOE NOT STAND FULFILLED IN THE PRESENT CASE. THERE IS NO MATERIAL TO SHOW AS TO H OW THE AO WAS SATISFIED OF THE ASSESSEE HAVING COMMITTED THE DEFAULT OF FURNISHING OF INACCURATE PARTICULARS OF ITS INCOME. IT IS PERTINENT TO MENTION THAT THE PA YMENTS MADE BY THE ASSESSEE TO THE TWO PARTIES I.E. M/S SHARMA TRADERS AND M/S R AMA ENTERPRISES WERE MADE THROUGH BANKING CHANNELS IN THE NEXT YEAR. THE DET AILS OF SUCH PAYMENT WERE TO BE FOUND IN THE LEDGER ACCOUNT DULY FURNISHED BY TH E ASSESSEE WHICH WAS ERRONEOUSLY OVERLOOKED BY THE AO. THE BANK STATEME NT OF THE ASSESSEE COMPANY ALSO DEPICTS SUCH PAYMENTS. THE PRESENT IS A CASE OF COMPLETE MISREAD AND NON-READING OF MATERIAL BROUGHT ON THE RECORD BY THE ASSESSEE IN THE PENALTY PROCEEDINGS THE AO REMAINED UNSUCCESSF UL IN DEMONSTRATING AS TO HOW THE ASSESSEE HAD FURNISHED INACCURATE PARTICULA RS OF ITS INCOME. 10. IN VIEW OF THE ABOVE DISCUSSION THE ORDER OF T HE CIT(A) IS CONFIRMED. THE GRIEVANCE SOUGHT TO BE RAISED BY THE DEPARTMENT THR OUGH THE GROUNDS OF APPEAL TAKEN IS REJECTED. 11. IN THE RESULT THE APPEAL FILED BY THE DEPARTME NT IS DISMISSED. 12. ORDER PRONOUNCED IN OPEN COURT ON 29/10/2010. SD/- SD/- (K.G. BANSAL) (A.D.
