Asst. Year 1981-82
Syed Shah Mohammed Quadri & V. Rajagopala Reddy, JJ.
IT Case No. 22 of 1992
7th July, 1997
S.R. Ashok, for the Revenue : S. Ravi, for the Assessee
Syed Shah Mohammed Quadri, J. :
This application is filed under s. 256(2) of the IT Act, 1961. The Revenue seeks a direction to the Tribunal to refer the following question to this Court for opinion, which is said to have arisen from the order of the Tribunal dt.10th July, 1990, in R.A. No. 14/Hyd/1986 :
“Whether, on the facts and in the circumstances of the case, the Tribunal is correct in law in holding that the amounts of Rs. 360, Rs. 79,100, Rs. 18,909 and Rs. 1,506 and Rs. 17,301 earned by the assessee constitute capital receipts in the assesseeâs hands and cannot be bought to tax under the head âOther sourcesâ for the asst. yr. 1981-82 ?”
The amounts referred to in the question represent interest on borrowed capital. The Tribunal took the view that those amounts are capital receipts and cannot be added to the interest. This question is covered by a judgment of the Division Bench of this Court in CIT vs. Nagarjuna Steels Ltd. (1988) 71 CTR (AP) 118 : (1988) 171 ITR 663 (AP) : TC 41R.551 which is against the Revenue and in favour of the assessee. We, therefore, see no reason to direct the Tribunal to refer the said question ITC is, therefore, dismissed.
