Facts of the Case

Assessee-society engaged in the collective disposal of labour of its members. During the relevant assessment year, the assessee filed its return of income by reducing the gross receipts to the extent of TDS, VAT and cess and claimed deduction under section 80P(2)(a)(vi).

During the assessment proceedings, the Assessing Officer enhanced the gross receipts by the amount of TDS, VAT and Cess and converted the deduction under 80P(2)(a)(vi) to deduction u/s 80P(2)(c), i.e., Rs. 50,000 and computed the income accordingly. Aggrieved by the order, the assessee filed an appeal to CIT(A).

On appeal, CIT (A) upheld the order of AO. Aggrieved-assessee preferred an instant appeal to the Amritsar Tribunal.


The Tribunal held that the assessee had computed the income correctly. The gross receipts must be computed by allowing the reasonable deduction of TDS, VAT, Cess and other deductions.

Further, it was held that the assessee is eligible for deduction u/s 80P(2)(a)(vi) as the assessee is a registered society engaged in the collective disposal of labour of its members.

Therefore, the disallowance made by AO must be deleted, and the assessee’s appeal is allowed.
