No Addition Can Be Made in Absence Of Direct Evidence Showing Assessee Received Cash Payment: ITAT Mumbai

In the case of ACIT vs. Katrina (Kaif) Rosemary Turcotte, ITAT Mumbai has held that:

The Assessing Officer has not brought on record any clinching evidence on the basis of any enquiry made by him to demonstrate that the assessee has actually received any cash as per the evaluation sheet from Matrix. Therefore, in the absence of any direct evidence demonstrating that the assessee had received cash payment from Matrix, as shown in the evaluation sheet, no addition can be made merely on presumption and surmises and on estimate basis. For making the addition on account of cash component, it was the duty of the Assessing Officer to bring on record corroborative evidence to establish the fact that the entries made in the evaluation sheet were correct.
