Husband running a kirana shop and wife engaged in private tuition work since last 10-15 years. Both do not have any bank account. Both do not file ITR becuase Below Taxable limit. Upto f.y. 06-07, they accumulated about 10 lacs in cash ( about 5 lacs each) and deposited with Govt. deptt. as licence fee Rs. 6.00 lacs and Security deposit Rs. 4.00 lacs in cash for obtaining a liquior licence for the FY 07-08. Money was deposited / paid in FY 06-07 but for the business of FY 07-08. IN the scrutiny assessment for AY 08-09, AO proposes to add the 10 lacs as income on the ground that no body can accumulate and keep such a huge cash balance in hand. Is the action of AO justified. Pl. provide case law if any in support of assessee.
