Federal Bank Ltd. v. ACIT (2011) 332 ITR 319 (Kerala High Court) – On this issue, the High Court held that the rate of depreciation of 60% is available to computers and there is no ground to treat the communication equipment as computers. Hence, EPABX and mobile phones are not computers and therefore, are not entitled to higher depreciation at 60%.
