Honble Shri D.N. Panda, Judicial Member
Honble Shri Madhu Mohan Damodhar, Technical Member

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.

 GST Bill passed by Parliament




The 122nd Constitution Amendment Bill introduced in Parliament in December 2014 has been passed by the Rajya Sabha and now also by the Lok Sabha with the amendments.  Now the Bill must get ratified by at least half the number of 31 State Legislatures which means 16 States and then finally get the approval from the President.

Thereafter the GST Council has to be set up which will determine the GST design at the granular level. This will include the structure of GST including scope of CGST, SGST and IGST, the taxes subsumed, the items/commodities covered and other critical aspects such as the threshold limits for taxability, exemptions, and several other parameters critical for an ideal  GST.

Further, for the GST to operate smoothly, the taxes paid on goods and services at every stage in the value chain needs to be tracked. This requires an IT infrastructure which will track the transactions and taxes paid and form the back-bone of GST. Reportedly considerable work has been already done on it, nevertheless it will need changes to correctly reflect the GST Law proposed by the GST Council and accepted by the Central & State Legislatures.

Last but not the least,  the tax authorities and other stakeholders who will implement the GST need to be trained for a smooth introduction.
