Provided that the CENVAT credit on inputs shall not be denied to job worker referred to in rule 12AA of the Central Excise Rules, 2002, on the ground that the said inputs are used in the manufacture of goods cleared without payment of duty under the provisions of that rule.

(2)  Option of Maintaining separate account- Rule 6(2)

Where a manufacturer or provider of output service avails of CENVAT credit in respect of any inputs or input services and manufactures such final products or provides such output service which are chargeable to duty or tax as well as exempted goods or services, then, the manufacturer or provider of output service shall maintain separate accounts for-

(a) the receipt, consumption and inventory of inputs used-

(i) in or in relation to the manufacture of exempted goods;

(ii) in or in relation to the manufacture of dutiable final products excluding exempted goods;

(iii) for the provision of exempted services;

(iv) for the provision of output services excluding exempted services; and

and shall take CENVAT credit only on inputs under sub-clauses (ii) and (iv) of clause (a) and input services under sub-clauses (ii) and iv) of lause (b).

(3) Option of not maintaining  separate account – Rule 6(3) 

Notwithstanding anything contained in sub-rules (1) and (2), the manufacturer of goods or the provider of output service, opting not to maintain separate accounts, shall follow any one of the following options, as applicable to him, namely:-

(i) pay an amount equal to six per cent. of value of the exempted goods and the exempted services and pay an amount equal to two per cent in case of services of transportation of passenger or goods by rail ; or

(ii) pay an amount as determined under sub-rule (3A); or

In simple word, this is combination of Rule 6(2) and Rule 6(3)(ii). In respect of input, separate account  for receipt, consumption and inventory are to be kept and CENVAT credit is to be taken only on those input which are used  for provision of output services excluding exempted services . On the other hand , in respect of input services, the amount of CENVAT credit attributable to exempted services is required to be proportionately reversed.

Explanation I.- If the manufacturer of goods or the provider of output service, avails any of the option under this sub-rule, he shall exercise such option for all exempted goods manufactured by him or, as the case may be, all exempted services provided by him, and such option shall not be withdrawn during the remaining part of the financial year.
