SC decides determinant for excise duty exemption
March, 25th 2008
Manufacturers of shampoo, hair dye, lip smoothers and such other products sold in pouches get excise exemption if the weight of each pouch is less than 10 gm, though the whole carton containing the pouches may weigh more, according to the Supreme Court.
 
In its judgment, Commissioner of Central Excise vs Kraftech Products Inc, a number of cosmetic firms had challenged the demand of duty and imposition of penalty on them for not paying the levy fully, claiming exemption under Rule 34 of the Standards of Weights & Measures (Packaged Commodities) Rules.
 
The Excise Appellate Tribunals in Mumbai and Delhi had accepted the contention of the manufacturers. The Commissioner appealed arguing that the exemption was not available where several units are packaged together.
 
Dismissing the appeals, the Supreme Court said: When a lip smoother or a shampoo is packed in a carton keeping in view the quantity contained therein, the same cannot be said to be for retail sale. No person would ordinarily purchase for ones own use 72 lip smoothers or 500 pieces of shampoo. Thus, it is not a case where the goods are being sold in multi-piece package. Each sachet must be sold as a unit.
