Order

PER : D. KARUNAKARA RAO

These bunch of 23 appeals by the assessee and the Revenue for assessment years mentioned in the caption against the names of the assessees, are directed against the orders of Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals), in the respective cases. All the assessees, in the present set of appeals are running co-operative sugar factories. They purchase sugarcane from the farmers and sell white sugar after manufacturing the same. The core issues raised in these bunch of appeals are as under:-

i. Taxability of Excess Sugarcane Price” paid by the assessees to suga cane suppliers, i.e. the price over and above the Statutory Minimum Price (SMP) fixed by State Government for purchase of cane.

ii. Taxability of “Concessional Sugar Price” qua the levy price and the manner of giving effect to the directions of the Hon’ble Apex Court in the case of CIT vs. Krishna SSK, (2012) 211 taxmann.com 109 (SC).

2. We shall now take up each of the above issues in the following paragraphs of this composite order.

A. Excess Sugarcane Price Paid to Sugarcane Suppliers

3. Referring to the facts and issues, the Ld. Authorised Representatives appearing on behalf of the assessees and Ld. Departmental Representatives representing the Department, submitted, at the outset, that the issue of excess sugarcane price raised in present set of appeals by the assessees/Revenue have already been considered and adjudicated by the Co-ordinate Bench of Tribunal in bunch of appeals with the lead case i.e. DCIT vs. Vasant Rao Dada Patil SSK Ltd. vide ITA Nos.50 to 52/PUN/2012 for the assessment years 1992-93, 1994-95 & 1996-97, respectively dated 20.03.2019

4. The Co-ordinate Bench (supra) after considering the binding judgment of Hon‟ble Supreme Court in the case of CIT Vs. Tasgaon Taluka S.S.K. Ltd. reported as 103 taxmann.com 57, has decided this issue as under :

“5. We have heard both the sides and gone through the relevant material on record. There is consensus ad idem between the rival parties that the issue of payment of excessive price on purchase of sugarcane by the assesses is no more res integra in view of the recent judgment of Hon‟ble Supreme Court in CIT Vs. Tasgaon Taluka S.S.K. Ltd. (2019) 103 taxmann.com 57 (SC). The Hon‟ble Apex Court, vide its judgment dated 05- 03-2019, has elaborately dealt with this issue. It recorded the factual matrix that the assessee in that case purchased and crushed sugarcane and paid price for the purchase during crushing seasons 1996-97 and 1997- 98, firstly, at the time of purchase of sugarcane and then, later, as per the Mantri Committee advice. It further noted that the production of sugar is covered by the Essential Commodities Act, 1955 and the Government issued Sugar Cane (Control) Order, 1966, which deals with all aspects of production of sugarcane and sales thereof including the price to be paid to the cane growers. Clause 3 of the Sugar Cane (Control) Order, 1966 authorizes the Government to fix minimum sugarcane price. In addition, the additional sugarcane price is also payable as per clause 5A of the Control Order, 1966. The AO in that case concluded that the difference between the price paid as per clause 3 of the Control Order, 1966 determined by the Central Government and the price determined by the State Government under clause 5A of the Control Order, 1966, was in the nature of `distribution of profits‟ and hence not deductible as expenditure.
