ITO vs. Abraham Varghese Charuvil (ITAT Cochin)

S. 68/ 2(14): “On Money” received by an assessee for sale of agricultural land has to be treated as “agricultural income” and exempted from tax if the facts show that the assessee has no other source for the receipt

The payment of on-money is an unfortunate practice in most part of our country, and none can deny this factual situation. It is the case of the assessee that the buyers were insisting on reducing the sale consideration to be disclosed in the sale deed for the purpose of reducing stamp duty payment. This contention of the assessee cannot be totally brushed aside
