If the machinery installed is used for production of goods then it is to be treated as capital goods and the relevant rate duty is to be paid as applicable under the central excise tariff act.

Based on the infomation given in the QS, Cevant Credit on Grease and Lub Oil cannot not be availed becasue these are not the capital goods.

The definition of "Input" (cited by prachee) is not applicable here, as qs is for the factory under construction.

Grease & Lube oil are not 'capital goods' under Cenvat Credit Rules, 2004.

These are 'input' when used in or in relation to manufacture of final products.

Credit of duty paid on 'capital goods' installed at the time of setting up of the unit can be availed when you commence production and obtain registration. [Refer CBEC Circular no. 88/94]. You should maintain record (a list of the capital goods, with details of corresponding invoices).

Similarly, you are entitled to avail credit of taxable services used to set up the factory or office of the factory. These are defined to be 'input service'.

Since you are not presently registered, it would be better to keep the department informed (that you would avail credits after you apply for registration).

You would also be entitled to credit of the duty paid on inputs that are available as opening stock on the date of your application for registration. However, you should maintain stock register as evidence of the stock.
