ORDER

The brief facts relat ing to the case are that the  assessee is a Doctor by profession. That during the impugned assessment year a survey u/s 133A of the Act was conducted on his business premises on 30.08.2016. In consequence to the discrepancies found by the survey team the assessee surrendered a total amount of Rs.50lacs.

2. The primary content ion of the Ld.Counsel for the assessee whi le chal lenging the findings of the Ld.Pr.CIT, was
that the documents and material found during survey revealed the source of the surrender made as being from the
medical profession of the assessee itsel f and the AO having applied his mind to i t and also to the submissions of the
assessee before him, had right ly formed the view that the surrendered income related to the profession of the assessee
and assessed it as such. That the AO had also noted that the assessee had paid advance tax at normal tax rates.

3. In view of the above, we are in agreement with the Ld. Pr.CIT that the AO had accepted the surrendered income of
the assessee as being from the business or profession without making any enquiries regarding the same despite
the fact that the documents/material found during search did not reveal the nature of the income at al l and no
explanation was of fered by the assessee during assessment proceedings, nor in the statement recorded during search.

4. In the result , the appeal of the assessee is dismissed.
Order pronounced on 4th October, 2021.
