ORDER

1. The present appeals have been fi led by the assessee against the orders of ld. CIT(A)-20, New Delhi dated 28.02.2018 and 28.03.2018.

2. The assessee contended that the amounts have been indeed paid on 15th September, 14th December and 14th March. The assessee has submitted certif icate from the Punjab National Bank that the cheques issued by the assessee have been deposited and sent for clearing on the same date (i.e. before 15th) but were cleared after the due date (17th and 18th). Hence, he argued that the assessee was not liable to pay interest for default of payment of advance tax.

3. As an agent of his customer, the collecting banker does not possess title to the cheque better than that of the customer. If the customer has no title thereto, or his title is defective, the collecting banker cannot have good title to the cheque. In case the cheque collected by him did not belong to his customer, he will be held liable for conversion of money, i.e., i l legally interfering with the rights of true owner of the cheque.

4. In the result, al l the appeals of the assessee are allowed.
Order Pronounced in the Open Court on 01/09/2021.
