Manoj Kumar Aggarwal (Accountant Member)

1. Aforesaid appeal by revenue for Assessment year [AY in short] 2011-12 contest the order of Ld. Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals)-18, Mumbai [in short CIT(A) ] dated 26/08/2019 which has provided certain relief to the assessee on account of alleged bogus purchases. 

2. We have carefully heard the rival submissions and perused relevant material on record. Our adjudication to the subject matter of appeal would be as given in succeeding paragraphs.

3.1 The material facts are that the assessee being resident corporate assessee stated to be engaged in trading of chemical was assessed for the year under consideration u/s 143(3) on 21/03/2014. During assessment proceedings, it transpired that the assessee purchased import license for Rs.2.66 Lacs from an entity namely M/s Magnum Enterprises. The supplier was listed as bogus supplier by Sales Tax Department, Mumbai. Therefore, the assessee was directed to substantiate these purchases.

3.2 The assessee filed purchase bill, bank statements evidencing payment through banking channels and documents proving utilization of import license. However, Ld. AO observed that no documents were filed in respect of M/s Magnum Enterprises and the onus to substantiate the purchases remained un-discharged by the assessee. Accordingly, the said amount was disallowed and added back to assessee’s income while framing the assessment.
