Citation :
ITA No. 4150/Del./2018 decided July 30, 2021

In ITO, Ward 32(4), New Delhi v. Smt. Swati Oberoi [ITA No. 4150/Del./2018 decided July 30, 2021], ITO, Ward 32(4), New Delhi ('the Appellant') sought an appeal to set aside the order dated March 23, 2018 ('the Impugned Order') passed by the Commissioner of Income-Tax (Appeals) ('the Revenue') allowing the benefit of capital gain deduction under Section 54F of the Income Tax Act, 1961 ('the IT Act') to Smt. Swati Oberoi ('the Respondent').

The Respondent filed return of Income ('ROI') of Rs Rs.15,06,65/- for the relevant year which was subjected to scrutiny. The Assessing Officer ('the AO'), during the scrutiny proceedings, held that the Respondent has sold 50% share in a commercial property of Rs.3.5 crores and has shown Long Term Capital Gain ('LTCG') of Rs.3,15,35,564/- in the ROI out of which the Respondent claimed deduction under section 54EC of the IT Act to the tune of Rs.49,55,589/- and deduction under Section 54F of the IT Act for Rs.2,65,79,975/-.

AO- Disallow deductions claimed by the Respondent under Section 54F of the IT Act on failure of the Respondent to furnish sale deed of the property and thereby made an addition of Rs.2,65,79,975/- under the head 'income from capital gains'. Being aggrieved, the Respondent preferred an appeal before Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals) ('CIT(A)')

CIT(A)- Decided in favour of the Appellant. Being aggrieved, the Appellant preferred an appeal before the Hon'ble Delhi Income Tax Appellate Tribunal ('ITAT'),

ITAT- Held that, benefit of deduction under Section 54F of the IT Act cannot be denied to the Respondent merely on the ground that conveyance deed has not yet been got registered particularly when the Respondent is proved to be in possession of the property in question out of which the Respondent was already owner in possession of 1/3rd share since 2008 after making a complete payment of the sale consideration to the vendors and has duly proved possession over the property by way of electricity and water charges bills.

Further held that, the Impugned Order allowing deduction under Section 54F of the IT Act to the Respondent is precise and dismissed the appeal.
