JUDGMENT

S. B. Majmudar, C.J.

1. The following common question is referred for our opinion by the Income-tax Appellate Tribunal, Bangalore Bench, Bangalore at the instance of the Revenue.

“Whether, on the facts and in the circumstances of the case, the Tribunal was right in law in reversing the order of the Commissioner of Income-tax (Appeals) who had confirmed the disallowance, made under Section 40(b), of the salary paid by the firm to the partners who were representing their respective Hindu undivided family ?”

2. Having heard learned counsel for the parties, we find that answer to this question is squarely covered by the Division Bench judgment in CIT v.
