O RDE R PER S. RIFAUR RAHMAN, A.M.: This appeal is preferred by the Revenue against the order of the learned Commissioner of Income-tax(A) - 5, Hyderabad, dated 28/03/2016 for AY 2009-10. 2.

Briefly the facts of the case are that the assessee company,

engaged in the business of cultivation of land, sowing, irrigation and production and sale of seeds, filed its return of income for AY 200910 on 30/09/2009 declaring a loss of Rs. 1,00,74,055/-. The return was processed u/s 143(1) of the Act. Subsequently, the assessee filed a revised return on 15/10/2010 declaring total loss of Rs. 6,94,56,542/-. The case was selected for scrutiny and notices u/s 143(2) and 142(1) were issued.

2.1

During the course of assessment proceedings the AO observed

that during the FY relevant to AY under consideration the assessee has made the following payments: 1. Coordinator payments under the head ‘seed grower payments & other production costs’ 2. Hypack industries towards promotional expenses. 3. Promotional expenses – others to various parties viz., leela leather, modi printer and others (print medial corp., abhay industries, suvidha graphics & printers, aksharent) Total 2.2

20.96,586/58,67,907/-

9,51,894 89,16,387/-.

The AO observed that no TDS was made by the assessee on

the said payments. He, therefore, disallowed the said amount u/s 40(a)(ia) of the Act. 3.

Aggrieved, the assessee preferred an appeal before the CIT(A).

4.

Before the CIT(A), the assessee contended that the payment

made by it towards promotional expenses i.e. either towards purchase of promotional items or reimbursement of expenses incurred by the company’s employee towards promotional activities, are not liable to TDS. It was further contended that section 40(a)(ia) is not applicable in the case of purchase of seeds. It was also contended that even otherwise section 40(a)(ia) could not be invoked in its case, since the said section is applicable to the amount remaining payable as on 31 st March of the year and not the amount paid during the year and assessee has made the payments during the financial year itself. 4.1

The assessee made an alternate plea before the CIT(A) relying

on the decision of the Hon’ble Allahabad High Court in the case of Vector Shipping Services Pvt. Ltd. [2013] 262 CITR 545 (All.), that the disallowance should be restricted to Rs. 15,22,373/-, which is

outstanding at the end of the year i.e. outstanding as on 31 March, 2015. 5.

The ld. CIT(A) after considering the submissions of

the

assessee and following the various case laws including the special bench decision of the ITAT in the case of Merlyn Shipping & Transports Vs. Addl. CIT, [2012 136 ITD 0023 (SB),

held that the

liability to deduct TDS out of promotional charges/payments does not arse and therefore out of addition of Rs. 89,16,387/-, the outstanding amount of Rs. 15,22,373/- is sustained and the remaining amount is directed to be deleted. 6.

Aggrieved by the order of the CIT(A), the revenue is in appeal

before us. 7.

Though, the approval obtained from Pr.CIT to appeal before the

ITAT against the order of the CIT(A) u/s 253(2) of the Act, the revenue has not raised/filed any grounds of appeal. Even though the said defect has been pointed out by the Registry, the revenue has not filed any grounds of appeal. On this aspect itself, the appeal of the revenue deserved to be dismissed. However, we will deal with the merits of the case in the below paragraphs. 8.

Ld. DR relying on the order of the Assessing Officer submitted

that the CIT(A) is not proper in sustaining the outstanding amount of Rs. 15,22,373/- out of the addition of Rs. 89,16,387/-. 9.

Ld. AR, on the other hand besides relying on the order of the

CIT(A) relied on the following decisions: 1. CIT Vs. Janapriya Engineers Syndicate, 371 ITR 439 (AP) 2. ACIT Vs. Warangal Urban Cooperative Bank Ltd., [2016] 73 Taxmann.com 229 (Hyd.) 10.

Considered the rival submissions and perused the material facts

on record as well as the decisions cited. We do not find any infirmity

WWW.TAXSCAN.IN - Simplifying Tax Laws 4 ITA No. 885/H/16 M/s Devgen Seeds & Crop Technology Pvt. Ltd.

in the order of the CIT(A) in sustaining only the amount of Rs. 15,22,373/-, which is payable at the end of the year i.e. outstanding as on 31st March, 2015, as against the addition of Rs.89,16,387/made by the Assessing Officer, following the special bench decision of the ITAT in the case of Merlyn Shipping and Transport (supra). Accordingly, we uphold the order of the CIT(A) and dismiss the grounds raised by the revenue. 11.

In the result, appeal of the revenue is dismissed. Pronounced in the open court on 21 st October, 2016.
