PER RAVISH SOOD, JM

The captioned appeals filed by the assessee are directed against the respective orders passed by the CIT(A)-3, Mumbai, dated 19.03.2018 and 21.08.2019 for A.Y. 2014-15 and A.Y. 2016-17, respectively, which in turn arises from the respective assessment orders passed under Sec. 143(3) of the Income Tax Act, 1961 (for short „Act‟), dated 30.11.2016 and 15.12.2018 for the aforesaid years.

2. Briefly stated, the assessee which is a company registered under Sec. 25 of the Companies Act, 1956 (now Sec. 8 of the Companies Act, 2013) is registered as a trust with the DIT (Exemption), Mumbai under Sec. 12A of the Act. The assessee trust had e-filed its return of income for A.Y 2016-17 on 14.10.2016, declaring its total income at Rs. nil. Subsequently, the case of the assessee was selected for scrutiny assessment under Sec. 143(2) of the Act.
