Re : Deduction under Sec. 80HHC of Income Tax Act
As you are aware, Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) under the aegis of All India Exporter’s Grievances Forum (AIEGF) was fighting the case with Supreme Court of India for deduction of DEPB under Sec. 80HHC of Income Tax Act for the last few years.
We are now given to understand from AIEGF that the Supreme Court has passed a favourable judgment in the 80HHC case upholding the Tribunal Judgment. Further, Supreme Court has now transferred all the petitions challenging the constitutional validity of Sec.80HHC to Hon.Chief Justice of Gujarat High Court for final hearing and disposal. We send herewith both the SC Orders in the enclosed attachment for your kind information and perusal.
