ORDER

These two appeals by the Revenue emanate from the common order dated 10-08-2018 passed by the CIT(A)-2, Thane in relation to the assessment years 200-11 & 2014-15. Since a common issue is raised in these appeals, we are, therefore, proceeding to dispose them off by this consolidated order for the sake of convenience.

2. The only issue raised by the Revenue in these two appeals is against the deletion of disallowance of depreciation on Intangible assets. A.Y. 2010-11 :

3. Briefly stated, the facts of the case are that the assessee is a wholly owned subsidiary of Matthey Finance B.V., Netherlands. Johnson Matthey Plc, UK is the ultimate holding company. The assessee company is engaged in the business of manufacture and sale of Nickel hydrogenated catalysts. It filed return for the year declaring total income of Rs.45,91,38,138/-. Depreciation was claimed on certain Intangible assets: technical know-how, goodwill and non-compete fees. Taking cognizance of the fact that such depreciation was disallowed in the assessment orders for the A.Ys. 2004-05 to 2012-13 (except for A.Y.2010-11 under consideration), the AO disallowed depreciation on Intangible assets amounting to Rs.4,92,46,594/-. The ld. CIT(A), relying on orders of the Tribunal order for the A.Yrs. 2005-06, 2006-07, 2009-10 and other years, deleted the entire addition. Aggrieved thereby, the Revenue has come up in appeal before the Tribunal.
