Major part of excise came from oil, motor spirit, ceramic products, cement, iron and steel machinery, edible oil, tobacco and soda ash manufacturers.

The Ahmedabad zone covers entire north, central and Saurashtra region of Gujarat. Rajkot commissionerate was the biggest contributor in both service tax and excise collections.

In 2014-15, rebate/refund of Rs 1,492 crore and Rs 195 crore was issued by excise and service tax departments respectively.

The central excise and service tax department detected evasion of worth Rs 165 crore in excise duty and service tax in 2014-15 (till February 2015) in Ahmedabad zone. As many as 10 people were held by the central agency for evasion.
