b) such an addition has been confirmed at any stage of appellate process in favour of revenue and assessee has not filed further appeal; or

c) such an addition has been confirmed at 1st appeal stage in favour of revenue or subsequently and further appeal of assessee is pending.

(ii) All assessments pertaining to Survey under section 133A of the Income-tax Act, 1961 ('Act') excluding those cases where books of accounts, documents etc. were not impounded and returned income [excluding any disclosure made during the Survey) is not less than returned income of preceding assessment year. However, where the assessee retracts from disclosure made during the Survey, such cases will not be covered by this exclusion.

(iii) Assessments in search and seizure cases to be made under section(s) 158B, 158BC, 158BD, 153A & 153C read with section 143[3) of the Act and also for the returns filed for the assessment year relevant to the previous year in which authorization for search and seizure was executed u/s 132 or 132A of the Act.
