2014-ITS-1782-CESTAT-M/s. Tops Security Limited -Vs- Commissioner of Central Excise & S.T., Vapi , Date of Decision : 19.12.2014

The issue involved in the present proceedings is whether the service tax payment made by the appellant s Mumbai unit could be considered as due discharge of service tax by the appellant. It is observed from the case records that some excess payment of service tax has been paid by the appellant s Mumbai unit but whether that excess payment was with respect to the appellant s unit at Silvassa is not clear. Appellant has approached their Mumbai Bank branch in September 2014 to either provide a certificate or give them the copies of TR-6/ GAR -7 challans/ Bank Certificates that during the period 1998-99 to 2004-05 entire service tax also was paid at Mumbai for the Silvassa unit.

It is also not clear from the findings of the lower authorities as to why service tax paid on the documents can not be correlated with the export documents. The admissibility of refunds and verification of documents/ records is properly required to be done in view of the judicial pronouncements of this Bench and CBEC Circular dated 12.3.2009, which can only be done by the Adjudicating authority. These cases are thus required to be remanded to the adjudicating authority for deciding the case in the light of relied upon case laws and CBEC Circular dated 12.3.2009, after affording an opportunity of personal hearing to the appelalnt.

2014-ITS-1778-CESTAT-Commissioner of Central Excise & S.T., Surat -Vs- M/s. Rameshwar Textile Mills Pvt. Limited , Date of Hearing/ Decision : 17.12.2014

It is observed that the reliance placed by the Revenue on an undertaking given by the Respondent in the year 2001 was not properly appreciated by the first appellate authority under which Respondent has clearly agreed to pay the dues pertaining to M/s. Namokar Processors as and when the issue is decided in favour of the department. There is nothing in this undertaking to suggest that liabilities arising after undertaking will be paid by the Respondent. Continue reading

2014-ITS-1777-CESTAT-M/s. Saheli Synthetics Pvt. Limited -Vs- Commissioner of Customs, Kandla , Date of Hearing / Decision : 12.12.2014

The redemption fine so imposed by the adjudicating authority was reduced to Rs. 7.5 Lakh as a result of CESTAT s order No. A/681-683/WZB/2005 dated 19.7.2005. In spite of the above modification, appellant did not redeem the goods. Auction of the goods was done after 07.10.2006 after giving a notice to the appellants. The goods confiscated by the Adjudicating authority were not redeemed, within the stipulated time either after Adjudication order or its modification by CESTAT. As per Section 126 of the Customs Act, 1962, reproduced below, the title of the confiscated goods vests with the Central Government and appellant had no claim on such goods and its sale proceeds:- Section 126. On confiscation, property to vest in Central Government. – (1) When any goods are confiscated under this Act, such goods shall thereupon vest in the Central Government. Continue reading

2014-ITS-1775-CESTAT-M/s. Kalupur Commercial Co. Op. Bank Limited -Vs- Commissioner of Central Excise & S.T., Ahmedabad , Date of Hearing / Decision : 12.12.2014

Once it is categorically held by Commissioner (Appeals) that appellant was under a bonafide belief that service tax as demanded was not payable, then a view can not be entertained that the facts will justify imposition of penalty under Section 78 of the Finance Act, 1994. Duty demanded in the show cause notice was Rs. 11,10,965/- but was confirmed only to the extent of Rs. 7,14,996/- in the Adjudication proceedings. The differential tax was only a reconciliation of accounts maintained by the appellant. Appellant is a co-operative bank. In view of the above facts and the relied upon case laws this case is not fit for imposition of penalty under Section 78 of the Finance Act, 1994. Accordingly appeal filed by the appellant is required to be allowed. Continue reading

The appellant have not adduced any further documents to this stage of appeal in support of their claim of refund, in the circumstances, the admissibility of the claim is not ascertainable.

 In the group of cases decided, question was with respect to service tax paid on GTA service on outward transportation of goods. In the case on hand we are concerned with courier service utilised by the manufacturer for transportation of goods from factory and also bringing inputs into the factory. Such service would certainly be covered within the expression: any service used by the manufacturer directly or indirectly in or in relation to the manufacture of final products and clearance of final products from the place of removal: used in Rule 2(l).
