to ‘profit or gains’ and hence in order to consider as income it is not necessary
that it should constitute or provide a profit or gain to the assessee. Under the
definition of Income as provided in section 2(34) of the ITO 1984, income
 any income, receipts, profits, or gains chargeable to tax as per ITO 1984; or
 any amount which is subject to collection or deduction of tax at source as
per ITO 1984; or
 any loss of such income, profits, or gains; or
 any amount on which a tax is imposed; or
 any amount which is treated as income under any provision of ITO 1984
(i.e. section 19).

concerned with the tainting of the illegality of income or its source.
