    Please clarify the following:
    If a registered dealer sells products to another registered dealer and the said purchase by the dealer is for his own use, then Cess is applicable( similar to sale to unregistered end user). Can this cess paid for purchase by the dealer be adjusted as input credit while paying off the monthly cess collected by the dealer while filing the monthly returns. Thanks & regards -Arun kumar,Ernakulam
