As a taxpayer, you may have some very legitimate grievances relating to your income-tax matters or settlement of your claims. You may, for example, feel that the Income-tax Department owes you a certain refund of tax but it is not doing enough to hear your grievance or complaint nor taking action to redress it. You may also be aggrieved about the rude behaviour of officials or their failure to follow instructions and circulars of the Board. In all such cases, you can approach your Income tax Ombudsman. Before you do so, however, you have to ensure that certain conditions are fulfilled. The Ombudsman is governed by, and has to act within, the framework of the Income Tax Ombudsman Guidelines, 2006. This brochure tries to explain to you these guidelines in a simple manner, so that you can approach the Ombudsman for help whenever you need it.

No Excise Duty Exemption if conditions mentioned in Exemption Notification of Excise Rules not complied – SC

January 15, 2012 4870 Views 0 comment Print

Indian Oil Corporation Ltd Vs CCE (SC) – The language of Rule 192 of Chapter X of the Central Excise Rules, 1944 is clear that for availing concession from excise duty on excisable goods used in a specified industrial process, a person must obtain a registration certificate from the Collector and that “the concession shall, unless renewed by the Collector, cease on the expiry of the registration certificate”. Admittedly, the registration certificate of the appellant expired on 31.12.1995. Hence, the exemption granted under the notification ceased on 31.12.1995. The fresh registration certificate in favour of the Ahmedabad Electricity Company Ltd. was issued on 26.06.1996 and we find on a reading of the copy of the CT-2 certificate annexed as Annexure P5 that the registration certificate was not for any period prior to 26.06.1996. As the procedure laid down in Rule 192 of Chapter X of the Rules has not been complied with, the appellant is not entitled to avail the exemption of excise duty under the exemption notification during the period from 01.01.1996 to 25.06.1996.

Excise Duty – Tailor made machines – Manufacture not complete till it meets the contractual specifications and subjected to individual testing

January 15, 2012 1050 Views 0 comment Print

Flex Engineering Limited Vs CCE (SC) – , If a product is not saleable, it will not be marketable and consequently the process of manufacture would not be held to be complete and duty of excise would not be leviable on it. The corollary to the above is that till the time the step of manufacture continues, all the goods used in relation to it will be considered as inputs and thus, entitled to Modvat credit under Rule 57A of the Rules. In the present case, as aforesaid, each machine is tailor made according to the requirements of individual customers. If the results are not in conformity with the order, then the machine loses its marketability and is of no use to any other customer. Thus, the process of manufacture will not be said to be complete till the time the machines meet the contractual specifications and that will not be possible unless the machines are subjected to individual testing.

The said process did not result in transformation of bitumen into a new product having a different identity, characteristic and use. The end use also remained the same, namely for mixing of aggregates for constructing the roads.
