F.No.167/2/94-CX.4

Government of India

Ministry of Finance, Department of Revenue,

Central Board of Excise & Customs

New Delhi, dated the 11th January, 1994

 Subject : Central Excise – Numbering system in respect of Orders issued under section 37-B and other Orders / Clarifications Procedure regarding ….

Board has examined the numbering system in respect of Orders issued under section 37-B of the Central Excise Act and has observed that the numbering system is presently as below :

1/92, 2/92, 3/92… etc. and again in 1993, 1/93, 2/93, 3/93 ….etc. It has been observed that one does not know what is the last number in 1992, whether 10 circulars were issued or 11 or 12. In order to do that, Board has viewed that every order will be assigned a number which will consist of :

(a) the running serial number i.e. 1, 2, 3, …11, 12, 13 etc.

(b) the serial number of the Order issued during the year;

(c) the year of issuing the Orders (last two digits only); and

(d) an abbreviated symbol “CX” identifying the Central Excise Wing

2. The first three elements in the Order No. will be separated from another by a slant strike and last two by a dash. Order issued under Section 37-B Order to be issued in 1994 will be prefixed by Section 37-B Order and adhoc exemption Orders issued under Section 5A(2) will be prefixed by Section 5A(2) Order. Any Instruction / Circular / Order issued other than these Sections will be  prefixed  by the word “Circular”.

3. Thus, Orders issued during 1994 will be numbered as 1/1/94-CX, 2/2/94-CX and so on and the 10th Order to be  issued in 1994 will be numbered as 10/10/94-CX. The first order to be issued in 1995 will be numbered as 11/1/95-CX. If this is done, both the Board”s Office and field officers would know how many Circulars have been issued.

4. The procedure for numbering will be followed for Circulars / Instruction / Orders issued by Central Excise Wing from the year 1994 onwards. Board has also desired that CX.3 Section will maintain a Centralised Register for this purpose from where a running number will be taken. No section including T.R.U. should issue a Circular / Instruction / Order without obtaining a number from CX.3 Section and copies  of such Instruction /Order will be made available to all concerned.
