2. That the Ld. CIT(A) erred on facts and circumstances of the case and in law, in deleting the addition of Rs. 9,03,030 on account of foreign travel despite the fact that the assessee failed to substantiate properly that the same were incurred for the business purposes.

3. That the Ld. CIT(A) erred in granting relief to the assessee ion account of addition made regarding disallowance of Debts and advances written off despite the fact that the assessee failed to fully disclose the details.”

3. At the time of hearing before us, the ld. DR appearing on behalf of revenue by pointing out the various observations made by AO and the ld. CIT(A) contended that ld.CIT(A) has given only 7 days for giving the Remand Report in respect of unexplained liabilities as well as the disallowance of debts and advances written off. As regarding ground no.2 which relates to deletion of addition on account of foreign travel, ld. CIT(A) has accepted the additional evidences of Board Resolution which was not placed before AO. Since AO has not been given sufficient opportunity of being heard he requested to set aside to the file of AO to re-decide all the three issues afresh.

4. On the other hand, the ld. Counsel appearing on behalf of assessee though relied on the orders of ld.CIT(A) could not contradict the submissions made by the ld.DR. He further fairly conceded that part of the information submitted by assessee has not been forwarded to AO for the Remand Report.
