INCOME TAX ACT, 1961
Since regular assessment for the year under consideration remained unabated as on date of search and, therefore, such unabated assessment could not be interfered with while framing search assessment under section 153A in the absence of incriminating material found during search.
Search and seizure - Assessment under section 153A - No incriminating material found during search - Unabated assessment
AO, pursuant to search conducted at assessee's premises, framed assessment under section 153A and made addition under section 68 on account of receipt of unexplained share capital/premium. Assessee challenged this on the ground of no incriminating material found during search. Held: Admittedly, regular assessment for the year under consideration remained unabated as on date of search and, therefore, such unabated assessment could not be interfered with while framing search assessment under section 153A in the absence of incriminating material found during search.
