III.  Useful Case laws:

1.   Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination Vs. Director General of Income Tax, W.P.(C) 4716/2010, Date of decision: 20/03/2012, Delhi High court


Assessee has filed writ petition against order passed by the Director General of Income Tax (Exemptions), for denying them exemption under Section 10(23C)(vi) of the Income Tax Act, 196, on the ground that the aforesaid institute was not directly imparting education and had not employed teachers who were teaching or giving lectures to the students.


Recently, the Madhya Pradesh High Court in CIT v. M.P. Rajya Pathya Pustak Nigam, (2009) 226 CTR (MP) 497 examined a similar question and after referring to several decisions has held that the term educational purpose was not restricted merely to holding of teaching class or lectures but educational purpose was equally served when educational text books were published. It is, therefore, clear that courts have laid emphasis on the activity undertaken, while construing or deciding whether or not a particular institution can be regarded as an educational institution. The courts have repeatedly held that the holding of classes is not mandatory for an institution to qualify and to be treated as an educational institution. If the activity undertaken and engaged is educational, it is sufficient. Decided in favor of the assessee.

2.   Shri. Ghanshyam K Khabrani Vs. ACIT, W.P.No. 1246 OF 2012, Date of Judgment: 12/03/2012, Bombay high court


Whether notice issued beyond four year under section 148 of Income tax Act, without compliance of the mandatory requirements of section 147 and 151(2) is valid.


The notice under section 148 can be issued beyond four year with prior approval of joint commissioner and at the same time joint-commissioner should be satisfied that this is fit case for issue of a notice in view of section 151(2). In the present case no new evidence or fresh evidence produce by assessing officer  and the joint-commissioner granted approval without see the record for issuance of notice under section 148. The court held that there was no compliance of the mandatory requirements of Section 147 and 151(2), the notice reopening the assessment cannot be sustained in law.
