1. This is an appeal against the order of the learned CIT, Guwahati, dt. 8th May, 2006 under Section 12AA of the IT Act, 1961.2.

Kaushik Medhi Vs. Income Tax Officer

Court : Income Tax Appellate Tribunal ITAT Guwahati

Reported in : (2005)93TTJ(Gau.)1

allegedly not servedThe AO completed best judgment assessment applying provisions of section 44AD(1) simply on the ground that the assessee-contractor did not produce books of account, bills, vouchers, etc., in response to notices under section 142(1) said to have been served on assessee and the assessee failed to respond to the same. The assessee preferred an appeal before the CIT (A) and contended that he was maintaining books of account and his case did not come within the purview of section 44AD of the Act and further that no notice under section 142(1) was served on him. The CIT (A) observed that mere maintenance of books of account did not give immunity to the assessee from the obligation of the provisions of section 44AD because as per provision of section 44AD(6), the assessee could have claimed lower rate of profit than prescribed in the aforesaid section provided accounts were maintained as required under section 44AA and duly audited in terms of section 44AB of the Act. Acc...
