  1. unnikrishnan v says:

    Good that the amendment has been carried out touphold and adher to the cocept of ‘transaction value’ adopted from 1/7/2000.Any body could have noticed the major discussion in the judgment was w.r.to the pre 2000 sec 4 and ‘normal price’.except in para 61 of the judgment,where it is just mentioned that it is not a sale covered by sec 4(1),the entire reasoning is w r.to earlier provisions and the issue involved also was for 1996-2001.Of course the applicability of the change for 29/8/202 till amendment will have to be seen in due course.esply after the jan,2014 circular.
