This time common man, an Indian Tax payer was expecting magical budget with high benefits but for Individual its "Give and Take" kinds of budget. Honorable FM has increased the Exemption limit for Individual by INR 20,000/-, on the other hand, he also hiked Indirect taxes rate from 10% to 12% in Excise and Service tax area.

As it is observed that, many CCI members facing problems of applicability of this increased rate of Excise and custom, I would like to publish very short analysis with Notification number of the applicability of proposed tax rate. It is seen that applicability of Service tax rate is from 1st April 2012 while in Excise it is 17th March 2012.

As 17th March 2012 is applicable date for Excise duties, it increases administrative work on part of Accountants and Admin Staff for Invoice preparation and any changes thereto, The hike will not be applicable for the stock in existence at 16th March 2012 because Excise is applicable on manufacturing of products though it is paid at the time of clearance.

For the sake of CCI members, I would like to publish this article with table given below:
