INCOME TAX ON CELL TOWER RENT WHICH IS ILLEGAL UNDER BYE LAW 169

Many cooperative societies have rented a portion of their respective terrace for cell tower installation.  In the income tax such earning should be shown as income from house and not from other source of income.  in income return one should show the cell tower space rent as “income from house property” and can get 30% set off in computation of taxable income.  In case cell tower rent is shown as “Income from other sources” or “income from business” the 30% set off will not be allowed.  Since terrace is a portion of “house”, such income from House property is justified.
However, Bye Law 169 prohibits renting of common areas, therefore, such earning are illegal earning.  Therefore, an offence.
Audit of many societies are in progress.  Take proper care for computation of taxable income.
