O R D E R

PER B.R. BASKARAN, ACCOUNTANT MEMBER:

The assessee has filed this appeal challenging the order dated 28.2.2020 passed by Ld. CIT(A)-14, Bengaluru and it relates to the assessment year 2014-15. The grounds urged by the assessee relate to denial of deduction claimed u/s 11(2) of the Income-tax Act,1961 ['the Act' for short] relating to accumulation of income.

2. The assessee is a charitable trust and it filed its return of income for the year under consideration declaring Nil income. In the return of income, the assessee claimed deduction of Rs.75 lakhs u/s 11(2) of the Act on the plea that it has accumulated its income in terms of section 11(2) of the Act for application in future.However, the assessee did not furnish Form No.10, the statutory form prescribed for reporting about accumulation of income. This form is required to be furnished for claiming the above said deduction. Hence, in the absence of Form No.10, the claim of accumulation of Rs.75 lakhs was rejected while processing the return of income u/s 143(1) of the Act and a tax demand of Rs.32.59 lakhs was raised upon the assessee.

3. The assessee challenged the above said action by filing the appeal before Ld. CIT(A). It was submitted that the prescribed form No.10 was filed on 30.1.2020, much beyond the due date for filing the same and also after completion of assessment proceedings. Accordingly, it was pleaded before Ld CIT(A) that the deduction towards accumulation of income should be allowed. The Ld. CIT(A), however, rejected the contentions of the assessee with the following observations:
