Court : Income Tax Appellate Tribunal ITAT Patna

Reported in : (2008)112ITD164(Pat.)

1. This is an appeal filed by the assessee against the levy of penalty of Rs. 15,808 under Section 271B of the Act.2. The allegation of the AO was that the assessee ought to have got his accounts audited as required under Section 44AB of the Act because he has declared net profit at a rate less than 8 per cent whereas if an assessee is claiming profits and gains from civil construction at a rate less than 8 per cent then he ought to have got accounts audited as required under sub-s. (c) of Section 44AB. Since there was a failure on the part of the assessee to get the accounts audited, a penalty of Rs. 15,808 was levied. This was confirmed by the learned CIT(A).3. Against this, the learned Authorized Representative of the assessee submitted that the assessee is not a civil contractor as he is only using a mobile crane for loading and unloading iron (and) steel material from the railway siding.

Court : Income Tax Appellate Tribunal ITAT Patna

Reported in : (2007)110TT(JP.)at366

1. In all these appeals filed by the Department as well as the assessees, the main issue involved is fraudulent withdrawals from Animal Husbandry Department (AMD), Government of Bihar, in the fodder scam. Therefore, all these appeals were heard together and are being disposed of by this consolidated order for the sake of convenience.2. The brief history of the case gathered from papers brought on record and submissions made is that Shri Dipesh Chandak was engaged in the criminal conspiracy of systematic fraudulent withdrawals of funds from the State Exchequer in connivance with the officials of AHD, Government of Bihar, and others. The modus operandi to facilitate this was that purchase orders were placed by AHD on the assessee for supply of feed to the Department. The assessee in turn would raise bogus bills of supply of feed on the Department without actually making them. In support of these supplies, the assessee would raise fictitious purchase vouchers as if purchases have actuall...
