Assistant Commissioner of Income Tax, Chennai held contingent deposits received by the assessee, being a non-banking finance company, from leasinghire purchase customers with a view to protect itself from potential sales tax liability as “income” and assessable to income-tax on the grounds that deposits were not kept in a separate interest bearing account, rather they formed part of the business turnover.
