Date of Hearing / Decision: 15.03.2017

FINAL ORDER No. 40502 / 2017

Per D.N. Panda

Appellant says that the demand arose during the transition period of withdrawal of the notification benefit which was again reintroduced. Such reintroduction cannot be construed to be prospective.

2. The Notifications in question are Notification No. 3/2001-CE dated 1.3.2001, Notification No. 6/2002-CE dated 1.3.2002 and as further amended by Notification No. 47/2002-CE dated 6.9.2002. He relies on the decision of the Apex Court in the case of Government of India Vs. Indian Tobacco Association reported in 2005 (187) ELT 162 (SC) to submit that in absence of express provision in the reintroduced notification, the interregnum period is not barred to be granted exemption benefit what that was granted by earlier notification..

3. We make it clear that what was the grant in the past, if not denied by subsequent notification through express provision contained therein, the previous grant is not deniable for the reason that the law as that was in force on the date of the lis shall govern the proceedings till its end. We may state that following above said apex Court judgment, Tribunal has extended the benefit in the case of Needle Industries (India) Pvt. Ltd. Vs. Commissioner of Central Excise, Salem reported in 2016 (41) STR 641 (Tri.  Chennai) holding that the grant of the previous notification being same by the reintroduced notification, interregnum period is equally entitled to the said grant.

4. In the result, appeal is allowed for the aforesaid reasoning.
