Dear Sir(s), 

Kindly clarify me that when we are Importing goods from other countries,

normally we are taking Cenvat Credit 10.3% of CVD under Excise,

my doubt is ,

additional duty  4% (imports) under 19/2006 notification is eligible to take as cenvat credit under central excise or it to be taken under VAT as VAT Credit. (pl.not that we have paid entire customs amounts CASH only)
