Loose Papers Which Do Not Have Full Details Are “Dumb Documents” And Have No Evidentiary Value: ITAT Ahmedabad

In the case of Nishant Construction Pvt. Ltd vs. ACIT, ITAT Ahmedabad has held that:

The AO has no power to disturb the sale price shown except in three cases. The first is under Section 145 of the Act. Where the sale of properties is part of the business of the assessee, the Assessing Officer, if he is of the opinion that the accounts are not correct and complete, may proceed to reject the books of accounts and thereafter make a best judgment assessment of the income in the manner prescribed by Section 144. The second is the case where Section 50C of the Act is invoked on the basis of the prices fixed by the Stamp Valuation Authorities of the State Government. That section, it is pointed out, however, applies only in the computation of capital gains and cannot be availed by the Revenue where the profits of the business are to be computed.
