5.2 We find the applicant is registered person under GST Act. The Query of the applicant is:- “GST to be paid by whom on scrap Generated at our Vendor Place, to whom work of labour job is given.”

5.3 It is seen that the applicant is getting products manufactured on sub-contract basis from vendors. These vendors are paid labour charges by the applicant. During the process of manufacture by the said vendors, scrap is generated. The applicant has submitted that the labour charges paid by them to vendors are less than the actual labour charges payable. This difference, as per their submissions, is the value of the scrap generated. Hence it is seen that part of the labour charges are paid by cheque and part, by way of barter of scrap. The applicant has also submitted that the scrap becomes the property of the vendors as per their understanding.

As per Section 95, the term ‘advance ruling’ means a decision provided by this authority to the applicant on matters or questions specified in Section 97(2), in relation to the supply of goods or services or both being undertaken or proposed to be undertaken by the applicant.
