2016 (1) TMI 183

Head Note:
Importers who had acquired foreign exchange from their authorized dealers for the purpose of imports of specified goods but had failed to submit the Exchange Control copy of Bill of Entry in respect of the relevant imports to their authorized dealers - It has been contended on behalf of the appellant that an amount of ₹ 410,550 US $ was remitted by IDBI by opening L/C (Letter of Credit). The goods were shipped by the foreign seller and arrived in India passed through the Customs authorities. Copy of the Bill of Entry for Warehousing filed is a proof of the arrival of the goods in India and is a conclusive proof and proceedings ought to have been dropped in this perspective.

Held that:- it is not in dispute that the entire foreign exchange acquired by the appellant has been remitted to the foreign seller and it is also undisputed that the imported goods were stored in a warehouse and as the customs duty and warehousing charges could not be paid by the appellant, the goods were sold. In our considered view, there is no contravention of Section 8(3) or 8(4) of FERA, 1973 as only proof of import of goods has to be filed and Bill of Entry of WH is a valid and convincing proof of the arrival of goods in India. As we have stated earlier, there is no allegation that the foreign exchange was used otherwise for the purpose for which it was issued or the appellant has failed to comply with any of the conditions required by him to be fulfilled, therefore, in our views contravention of the Section 8(3) and 8(4) are not made out. - Appeals allowed - Decided in favor of appellants.
