Further, Rs. 2,94,900 was paid by 'H' on behalf of assessee, for purchase of flat at Bangalore. The payment was made directly to the builder and said payment was recorded in assessee's books of account by passing of a journal entry without actually receipt of cash and mere journal entries would not attract the provisions of section 269SS.Held: Passing of journal entry without actual receipt of cash would not attract provisions of section 269SS.

In absence of same, in the interest of justice, issue was restored to AO to examine whether assessee in her books of account only passed a journal entry and was not in receipt of money from 'H'.
