Expenditure incurred by assessee in auto cone winders in textile mill in place of manual cone winders, was for survival in the business neither affecting cost factor nor installed capacity and thus was revenue in nature, notwithstanding the fact that a large sum was spent. This decision has distinguished the decision of Supreme Court in CIT vs. Saravana Spinning Mills (P) Ltd. (2007) 293 ITR 201 (SC).
