ORDER

 PER SUDHANSHU SRIVASTAVA, JM:

 This appeal is preferred by the Department against order dated 20.06.2017 passed by the Learned Commissioner of IncomeTax (Appeals)-36, New Delhi {CIT(A)} for Assessment Year 2012-13.The sole issue under challenge is deletion of penalty of Rs.87,94,892/- imposed u/s 271(1)(c) of the Income Tax Act, 1961 (hereinafter called ‘the Act’).

2.0 The brief facts of the case are that the assessee is engaged in the business of ‘out-of-home’ advertisement consisting of street furniture (such as advertising on bus shelters, public utilities, lots, cycle stands, auto stands etc.) billboards and transportation (such as advertising in airports, railway stations, metros, bus stands, vehicles etc.). The assessee company had capitalized expenditure incurred on Bus Queue Shelters (BQS) in its books of accounts and had claimed depreciation thereon. However, for Income Tax purposes such expenditure was claimed as Revenue expenditure u/s 37 of the Income Tax Act, 1961 in the return of income. The Assessing Officer completed the assessment after making disallowance on account of expenditure on construction of BQS as capital expenditure. In Assessment Years 2007-08 and 2008-09 also the Assessing officer had made similar additions on account of such expenditure of construction of BQS which was confirmed by the Ld. CIT(A). Although the assessee company had filed appeals against such additions before this Tribunal (ITAT), the company chose not to press the grounds before the ITAT. Subsequently, the Assessing Officer imposed penalty u/s 271(1)(c)of the Act on such quantum addition. The assessee challenged the imposition of penalty before the Ld. CIT(A) in Assessment Years 2007-08 and 2008-09 and the Ld. CIT(A) deleted the penalties imposed.
