The grievance of the revenue is that proviso appended to section 43B of the Act permitting allowing of deduction of PF, ESI etc., subsequent to the close of the accounting period but before the return is filed, should not have been followed but disallowance must be upheld. It has not been disputed before us that the proviso has been inserted by the Finance Act, 1987 effective from 1.4.1988. In view of this, the appeals preferred by the revenue have been dismissed.

The only course open to the Revenue is to recover the amount from the very person who has deducted and not from the petitioner.

Credit for TDS cannot be denied to deductee for non payment by deductor
