(1.) 1053/Del/2006 relevant for the asst. yr. 2001 -2002.
(2.) The assessee is engaged in the business of export of engineering goods and installation and commissioning of equipment at the site of the customer and providing other services as per the requirement of the customers. The
assessee had filed a return claiming a deduction under s. 80HHC of the IT Act, 1961 ('the Act'). The assessee thereafter
filed a revised return in which he made a claim of deduction under s. 80HHB of the Act.
(3.) The AO took the view on the revised claim of the assessee that it was not bona fide and the assessee has not been able to furnish requisite evidence regarding various conditions that are required to be met for allowing a deduction under
s. 80HHB of the Act. Therefore, the AO took no cognizance of the revised claim. There were certain other deduction
claimed by the assessee and these were also disallowed. The AO concluded the assessment order with the following
"Assessed. Tax is hereby charged. Interest under s. 234B/C/D is hereby charged. Issue ITNS 150, Demand Notice and
Challan. Penalty proceeding under s. 271(1)(c) have been initiated."

this Court in CIT vs. Ram Commercial Enterprises Ltd. (2001) 167 CTR (Del) 321 : (2000) 246 ITR 568 (Del), the AO
had not recorded his satisfaction for initiating penalty proceedings under s. 271(1)(c) of the Act.;
