  1. Manoj Chandrawa By pass Road says:

    Respected Sir,e
    The following query need to be addressed before deciding my application.” Whether non-recoverable arrears owing to Liquidation of Main Noticee (the company ) duly approved by High Court , wherein the arrears have now become non-recoverable, will qualify for SVLDRS for co-noticee under Section 124(1)(b) of the Act.” and Secondly ,In Circular No 1071/4/2019-CX8 dated 27.08.2019 in para 10(d) the clause reproduced below :”Moreover, there can be a show cause notice that originally also involved a duty demand, and the amount of duty in the said notice became ‘nil’ on account of the fact that same has been paid under this scheme or otherwise. Such cases are also covered under Section 124(1)(b). ”
     ” Otherwise” in last line will cover the Non-recoverable arrears also, as in the instant case the demand against the main noticee owing to Liquidation approved by High Court,  wherein after sale of entire assets, the departmental (C.Ex dues) dues have become non-recoverable and there is no proceeds left with Liquidator to distribute to revenue against the outstanding dues and hence the dues are to be treated as ” NIL”  and hence whether the benefit extended to co-noticee under Section 124(1)(b) will be available to the applicant, being co-noticee.
