O R D E R

The assessee is a registered charitable trust. For the assessment year 2016-2017, the return of income was filed on 08.11.2017 declaring NIL income. The assessment was selected for scrutiny by issuance of statutory notice u/s 143(2) of the I.T.Act. During the course of assessment proceedings, the Assessing Officer noted that the assessee has not filed Form No.10 for accumulation of funds while filing the return of income. Accordingly, the Assessing Officer brought a sum of Rs.15,15,080 to tax vide order dated 25.12.2018.

2. The learned Standing Counsel relied on the order of the Bangalore Bench of the Tribunal in the case of M/s.Navodaya Education Trust v. DCIT in ITA No.49/Bang/2021 (order dated 15.07.2021).

3. I have heard rival submissions and perused the material on record. As per Board Circular No.273 dated 03.06.1980, the assessee can file application for condonation of delay for submission of Form No.10 by specifying certain conditions. The assessee has filed such an application before the CIT (Exemption) and the same is pending. The copy of the application for condonation of delay in filing Form No.10 is placed on record. In such circumstances, I deem it fit to restore the issue to the files of the A.O.

4. In the result, the appeal filed by the assessee is allowed for statistical purposes.
Order pronounced on this 20th day of September, 2021.
