    buddy, you got everything wrong.E-filing of returns will ensure that the assessee/his representative does not have to travel to the excise office.The central excise officer will interfere/reach the factory only when such a need arises and will have to justify such a visit.In a nutshell, e-filing is boon to society at large and the factory owner(s) in particular.It needs no mention that it will save the asessees a whole lot of time and resources.Celebrate this opportunity and e-file in time. Good luck.
