    I am an inspector in CBEC, currently in charge of audit of an assessee who has not maintained separate accounts for cenvat credit and has not reversed the amount of credit they availed for providing exempted services. What shall we do in this case? Should we ask the assessee to pay amount equivalent to 7% of the the total exempted value of services provided by them? Kindly reply..
