2015 (7) TMI 818

Head Note:
Classification of goods - Classification of Kindle device - Notification No. 25/2005-Cus. Dated 01.03.2005 - Classification under entry 8543 70 99 or under entry 8528 59 00 - Held that:-The main entry 8528 is in respect of the monitors, projectors and the television sets that is clearly not the case here. The specific entry relied upon by the Customs is 8521 which pertains to video recording or reproducing apparatus, whether or not incorporating video tuner. This is clearly not applicable for the simple reason that Kindle device is not meant for video recording or reproducing anything. The other related entry under this heading pertains to video recorders beta cam or beta cam SP or digital beta cam S-VHS or digital –S etc. That is clearly not the proper description of Kindle device. The third entry relied upon by the Customs Department is under the heading 9504 which pertains to video game consoles and machines, articles for funfair table or parlor games, including printables, billiards, special tables for casino games and automatic bowling alley equipment. From the very nature of the description, the Kindle Device will not be a part of toys, games and sports equipments; parts and accessories thereof which is to be covered under the heading 9504.

Kindle Device will be covered under entry 85437099 being an electrical machine with translation or dictionary functions. Therefore, this late objection raised by the Revenue is rejected. We have seen the some import details. All these imports have been under the entry 85437099 and accepted by Customs. Of course, these imports were not made by the applicant but that is irrelevant once the Customs Departments accepts the same to be covered by 85437099. - Benefit of notification granted - Decided in favour of assessee.
