ORDER

 These three appeals of three different assessees are being taken up together as in each of these appeals pertaining to 2011-12 assessment years, the issues and arguments remain identical. Accordingly, on the request of the parties, common order in all these appeals is being passed.

2. For the sake of convenience, the issues as found addressed in ITA 1152/CHD/2019 are being taken up first. Herein the assessee is aggrieved by the order passed by the CIT(A)-I Ludhiana. Various grounds have been raised therein, however, the parties argued ground No. 2 & 3 in the present appeal. These read as under :

 “2. That in the facts & circumstances of the case, the re-opening of the assessment proceedings u/s 147/148 are illegal, without jurisdiction and without application of mind as addition is made on protective basis and further ignored the fact that the investment was made in AY 2012-13 and not in AY 2011-12.

3. That the Ld Appellate Authority wrongly & illegally confirmed the protective assessment without a clear finding regarding the addition on protective basis.”

3. Referring to the submissions advanced on 06.05.2021 and 09.06.2021, the ld. Sr.DR invited attention to the reply of the department by way of information relatable to M/s KOC Industries Ltd. wherein the position and facts required to be addressed has been clarified. It has been informed that this very addition had been made on a substantive basis therein and by way of abundant caution had also been made in the case of the assessee on a protective basis so as to keep the department’s interest alive. Accordingly, elaborating her stand referring to submission made on earlier dates, it was submitted that the present appeal can accordingly be disposed off.
