Only change made after amendment is that certain services are excluded. Various High Courts have interpreted to Rules to have a wider connotation rather than the constrictive view taken by Revenue.
Hon’ble High Court of Bombay in the case of M/S. COCA COLA INDIA PVT. LTD. VERSUS THE COMMISSIONER OF CENTRAL EXCISE, PUNE-III [2009 (8) TMI 50 - BOMBAY HIGH COURT] has held that the manufacturer is entitled to take credit on services used directly or indirectly, in or in relation to manufacture and clearance of the final products up to the place of removal and on various services as illustrated in the inclusive part of the definition; further they held, in the case of CCE, NAGPUR VERSUS ULTRATECH CEMENT LTD., [2010 (10) TMI 13 - BOMBAY HIGH COURT], that the definition of input service read as a whole makes it clear that the said definition not only covers services, which are used directly or indirectly in or in relation to the manufacture of final product, but also includes other services, which have direct nexus or which are integrally connected with the business of manufacturing the final product.
The appellants have correctly availed the credit on various disputed services - Appeal allowed - decided in favor of appellant.
