2016 (7) TMI 1341

Head Note:
Contravention of provision of Section 8 of FEMA, 1999 r/w Regulations 9 and 13 of Foreign Exchange Management (Export of Goods and Services) Regulations, 2000 - failure to prove the service of either SCN or notice for personal hearing or the service of impugned order upon the appellant - Held that:- We are of the view that the respondent has failed to prove the service of either SCN or notice for personal hearing or the service of impugned order upon the appellant. The appellant has taken a specific plea that he had resigned much prior to initiation of the Adjudication Proceedings and was non-executive director and was not involved in any activity relating to export or day to day affairs of the company and had been made non-executive director for the Indore project only for saving expenditure and convenience in seeking clearance from various departments.

It is established that the services of the appellant were lent to the company M/s. Sashak Noble Metals Ltd. by its employee Sahara Industrial Services Pvt. Ltd. The ex parte order is non-speaking without reasons and violative of the principles of natural justice and the liability has been fastened arbitrarily against the appellant, who appears to have no concern with the business activities of the company relating to disputed transactions and was looking after the Indore project only. No evidence to prove that the appellant was in any way associated with the incharge Managing Director or Director for exports or his role is available and no such allegation specifically has been imputed. The Adjudication Order is improper, unjust and based on surmises and is not sustainable and is liable to be set aside. The appeal has merits and deserves to be allowed.

The appeal is allowed and the impugned adjudication order is set aside. The amount of pre-deposit if any shall be refunded by the respondent after the expiry of period of limitation for filing appeal. No order as to costs.
