J. KATHURIA, A.M. : -
(1.) THESE cross-appeals - one by the assessee and the other by the Revenue - and the cross-objection by the assessee pertain to asst. yr. 1985-86.
THE assessee had filed 12 affidavits. THE Assessing Officer, however, recorded the statement of Navdeep Singh, Gurnam Singh and Kesar Singh, all at the back of the assessee. In their statements, according to the Assessing Officer, these persons denied having received any commission from the assessee. THE Assessing Officer allowed an opportunity to the assessee to inspect the statements recorded by him and to produce the persons to whom the commission had been allegedly paid.

(2.) We shall first take up the assessee's appeal (ITA No. 879/Chd/89). The only effective ground is against the confirmation of addition of Rs. 1,47,203 as commission paid to various agents.
Brief facts of the case are these. The assessee is an individual running proprietary concern in the name of M/s. Geeco Engineering, Ludhiana. For the year relevant to asst. yr. 1985-86, the accounting year ended on 31st March, 1985. The assessee derives income from manufacturing and assembly of spray pumps. Previously, the concern was run by the assessee's husband who expired in 1975.
(3.) THE Assessing Officer noted that the assessee had shown payment of commission of Rs. 1,47,203 to the following fifteen parties :
