The assessee has filed this appeal challenging the order dated 06.01.2020 passed by Ld CIT(A), Mangaluru and it relates to the assessment year 2016-17.

2. The assessee is a co-operative credit society registered under Karnataka Co-operative Societies Act. The assessee claimed deduction u/s 80P(2)(a)(i) of the Act and declared total income of Rs.4,06,730/-. The assessing officer noticed that the assessee is having nominal/associate members and accordingly took the view that the assessee has violated the principles of mutuality. Accordingly, taking support of the decision rendered by Hyderabad bench of Tribunal in the case of Citizens co-operative bank, the AO held that the assessee is not eligible for deduction u/s 80P(2)(a)(i) of the Act.

3. We heard Ld. D.R. and perused the record. Since the issue of deduction u/s 80P(2)(a)(i) of the Act requires fresh examination in the light of decision rendered by Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Mavilayi Service Co-operative Bank Ltd. (supra), we set aside the order passed by Ld. CIT(A) on this issue and restore the same to the file of the A.O for examining it afresh as discussed above.

4.In the result, the appeal of the assessee is treated as allowed for statistical purposes.
Order pronounced in the open court on 2nd Sept 2021.
