Arihant Tradelinks India vs. CCE
The Court of Appeal of the Chamber of Customs, Excise and Service Taxes (CESTAT) in Ahmedabad granted the Cenvat credit for 2% CVD. Judicial member coram, Ramesh Nair, and technical member, Raju, argued that the issue at issue is purely one of interpretation of Cenvat’s credit rules, levying countervailing duties in terms of customs tariff law. It is also the fact that, on an identical question, many cases have been established by the ministry across the country with regard to different persons assessed, which clearly shows that it is a question of interpretation of the law. In this situation, dishonest intent cannot be attributed to the caller. The appellant stated that he had Cenvat credit for 2% CVD and this was reflected in the monthly ER-1 statements. Therefore, there is absolutely no suppression of facts or misrepresentation etc. on behalf of the appellant. Consequently, the demand for extended periods is not sustainable also because of the limitation period.
