There could be various situations which we have examined separately as follows:

A. Goods Earlier exempted now exemption withdrawn./ Not liable or nil rated in Central Excise tariff

• Goods removed prior to 10.7.2012 not liable: This would be even if finished goods are removed to depots or warehouses. Subsequent sales should have stamp that these goods have been manufactured and removed from factory prior to 10.7.12 to avoid seizure in between.

• Goods at job workers premises in progress, in stock at factory/ies liable

• Whether manufacturing own / unbranded goods: If so then the value of manufactured goods in 13- 14 is to be examined. [ including exempted goods]  This is to determine whether the SSI exemption of Rs. 150 Lakhs is eligible for goods removed after 10 July 14.

• If branded goods or not SSI then liable from 10th July midnight.

• Registration of factory/ies, dealers who supply major material under CE

• Stock taking and availment of credit on stocks in hand

• Invoice/ Delivery documents format with adequate disclosure’s.

• Paying duty after adjusting credit by 5th of August 2014

• Filing of returns by 10th August 2014.

B. Added to Process amounting to Manufacture in Chapter notes.

• First time goods made liable or process amounting to manufacture – Liability from the notified date.

• Procuring all inputs under duty paying documents

• Removing all finished goods after they are manufactured promptly to the customer or depot.

• Getting registration etc as in case of A above and all subsequent activities thereon. 

C. Reduction in rate: This maybe unlikely. However if this happens all goods in factory still to be removed when removed would be at lower rate from 10th July midnight.

D. Increase in rate: All goods in factory would be removed at higher rate from 10th July Midnight.


E. Exempted: All goods post midnight of 10july would not be on payment of duty mentioning that these are removed post 10th July if document not clear. Further the cenvat credit on raw material, WIP, FG which are still in stock may require to be reversed.
