But the assessee has raised the issue that the DIT(E) has erred in holding that the proviso to section 2(15) of the Act will be applicable once the gross receipt crossed the limits specified therein. For this, assessee has raised following ground nos. 1 and 2:

“1. That the Ld. DIT(E) on granting registration u/s. 12AA has erred in holding the object of the trust as advancement of general public activity inspite of the objects and activities of the trust being related to provision of medical relief and education etc for charitable purposes only.
