O R D E R

PER B.R. BASKARAN, ACCOUNTANT MEMBER:

The appeal filed by the assessee is directed against the order dated 29-11-2019 passed by Ld CIT(A)-7, Bengaluru and it relates tothe assessment year 2015-16. The solitary issue urged in this appealis whether the Ld CIT(A) was justified in rejecting the claim for deduction u/s 54F of the Income-tax Act,1961 ['the Act' for short].

2. We heard the parties and perused the record. The assessee along with other family members had sold an immovable propertylocated at Bommanahalli, Bangalore on 20-08-2015. The assesseeworked out long term capital gain of Rs.1,50,20,000/- and claimed deduction of entire amount u/s 54F of the Act. The AO noticed that the assessee had received a building by way of gift on 13.8.2015 andthe said building consisted of ground floor, first floor and secondfloor. The AO also deputed his inspector to physically inspect theproperty. The Inspector reported that the Ground floor is having agarage and one residential unit; first floor is having two 1BHK flats and second floor is having 2 single (with bath) units. The AO, accordingly, took the view that each of the unit is separate house. Since deduction u/s 54F of the Act is not permitted, if the assesseeis having more than one house property, the AO rejected the claim for deduction u/s 54F of the Act. The Ld CIT(A) also confirmed thesame and took support of decision rendered by Bangalore bench of Tribunal in the case of Ramaiah Harish (ITA No.789/Bang/2019 dated 04-09-2019).
