IF AN ASSESSEE IS INVESTOR IN SHARES AND ALSO TRADING IN SHARES AND DECLARING REGULAR INCOME ON TRADING OF SHARES AND CAPITAL GAIN AND SALE OF SHARES SEPARATELY . THE ASSSESE IS HAVING DIVIDEND INCOME FROM INVESTMENT IN SHARES AND ALSO DIVIDEND INCOME IN TRADING OF SHARES.FOR BOTH THE TRANSACTIONS ACCOUNTS ARE KEPT SEPARATELY.
THE QUERY IS WHETHER THE DISALLOWANCE IS ONLY AGAINST DIVIDEND INCOME ONLY ON INVESTMENT IN SHARES OR ALSO ON TRADING OF SHARES. IF DIVIDEND EARNED ON TRADING OF SHARES IS ALSO ELIGIBLE FOR DISALLOWANCE U/s 14A THEN HOW DISALLOWANCE HAS TO BE WORKED OUT.
S. 14A applies where shares are held as investment and the only benefit derived is dividend. S. 36(1)(iii) deduction allowable if shares held as stock-in-trade CIT vs. Leena Ramachandran (Kerala High Court)
