2. A larger bench of CESTAT in the case of Blue Cross Laboratories Vs CCE, Mumbai 2006(202) ELT 152 (T-LB), has also held that physician samples are to be assessed under rule 4 of the Central Excise Valuation (Determination of Price of Excisable Goods) Rules, 2000. Further, the aforesaid circular of 2005 has also been upheld by the Honble High Court of Mumbai in the case of Indian Drugs Manufacturers Association Vs. UOI, reported at 2008(222) ELT 0022 (Bom).

3. Subsequently, CESTAT in its majority decision in the case of M/s Cadila Pharmaceuticals Ltd.
