Court : Income Tax Appellate Tribunal ITAT Guwahati

Reported in : (2000)75ITD197(Gau.)

1. The appeal by the Revenue and the cross-objection by the assessee are arising out of the order of the CIT(A) for the asst. yr. 1991-92.2. The first dispute raised in the appeal is against the deletion of disallowance of Rs. 2,782 being the amount paid to Assam Tribune Sports Club. It was disallowed by the AO on the ground that the expenditure was of a non-trading nature. The CIT(A) allowed the claim of the assessee by holding that the payments were made for the welfare of the employees who were the members of this sports club and, therefore, he held that the expenditure cannot be said to be for non-trading purposes. As the expenditure is for the welfare of the employees, the CIT(A), in our opinion, was right in allowing the claim of the assessee. No interference is called for. His order on this issue is upheld.3. The next issue is against the deletion of disallowance of Rs. 12,840 made under the head "Biswakarma Puja".
