ORDER

This appeal filed by the assessee is directed against the order dated 26th July, 2019 of the CIT(A)-40, New Delhi, relating to Assessment Year 2015-16.

2. Facts of the case, in brief, are that the assessee filed its return of income at Rs.2,96,610/-. The tax liability of Rs.4,801/- was adjusted against TDS of Rs.7,463/-. Tax was computed at the maximum marginal rate @ 30% on the total income of Rs.2,96,610/- instead of applying the slab rate. The assessee filed an appeal before the CIT(A), who dismissed the appeal filed by the assessee.

3. The Revenue could not rebut the fact that the Ld. CIT(A) has taken contradictory view. I therefore, considering the totality of facts of the present case hold that Ld.CIT(A) was not justified in taking contrary stand in this case of the assessee. Hence, the Assessing Officer is hereby directed to charge tax at normal rates.”

4. Similar view has again been taken in A.Y. 2017-18 in the same order. Since the facts of the instant case are identical to the facts in the cases in ITA Nos.7641 & 7643/Del/2019 cited (supra), therefore, respectfully following the decision of the coordinate Bench of the Tribunal in assessee’s own case, I set aside the order of the CIT(A) and direct the AO to charge tax at normal rate. The grounds raised by the assessee are accordingly allowed. In the result, the appeal filed by the assessee is allowed. The decision was pronounced in the open court on 04.10.2021.
