The present appeal has been preferred by the assessee against the order dated 26.09.2019 of the Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals) [hereinafter referred to as the CIT(A)]vrelevant to assessment year 2015-16.
2. The only issue raised in the grounds of appeal by the assessee is against the order of Ld. CIT(A) upholding the order of AO wherein the AO has denied the adjustment of book profit of unabsorbed depreciation amounting to Rs.17,09,18,048/-.
3.The Ld. Counsel of the assessee, at the outset, submitted that the issue is squarely covered in favour of the assessee by the decision of the co-ordinate bench of the Tribunal in assessee’s own case in ITA No.3788/M/2018 A.Y. 2014-15 vide order dated 13.01.2021. The Ld. A.R. prayed before the Bench that since the issue has been settled in favour of the assessee by the decision of the co-ordinate bench of the Tribunal, the issue in the current year may kindly be allowed following the said decision of the co-ordinate bench of the Tribunal.
4. In view of the above, we are inclined to set aside the order of Ld. CIT(A) and direct the AO to grant the deduction of unabsorbed depreciation and recompute the book profit under section 115JB of the Act accordingly.
5. In the result, the appeal of the assessee is allowed.
Order pronounced in the open court on 26.07.2021.
