income recognition
« on: October 02, 2012, 02:16:51 pm »

I have a query. There was an old board circular dated 09-10-1984 prescribing income recognition on NPA in case of banks. The same was referred to by the Supreme Court in case of Uco Bank (237 ITR 889). Whether that circular is in effect today or it has been withdrawn later on? I feel it has been withdrawn as section 43D was enacted later on to take care of this aspect. Can any body provide me the relevant material or subsequent circular withdrawing the said circular dated 09-10-1984? Thanks in advance.

Dear members,

I have a income tax capital gains tax case. I am looking for a good lawyer, who can represent my case in the high court of Karnataka.

Any pointers in this direction will be highly appreciated. Preferably someone who has already represented such cases successfully in the court.
