2. The learned counsel for the assessee, at the outset, contends that as per Central Board of Direct Taxes, Instruction No.3/2011 dated 09th February, 2011, the revised limit for preferring revenue’s appeals has been increased from Rs. 2 lacs to Rs. 3 lacs, although the tax effect in the present revenue’s appeal is below the prescribed limit of Rs. 3 lacs. In view thereof, the revenue’s appeal may be dismissed as the tax effect being below the prescribed limit.

3. The learned Departmental Representative agrees to the tax calculation and the upward revision of tax effect appeal able under revenue’s appeal to Rs. 3 lacs.
