2016 (7) TMI 776

Head Note:
Import of baggage without declaring the goods - passing through green channel - electronic goods - Held that:- Government finds that in the present case the applicant failed to declare the impugned goods imported as baggage thereby violating the provisions of Section 77 of the Customs Act, 1962. The said goods were undisputedly chargeable to appropriate duty under Section 12 read with Section 78 of the Act. The applicant has imported the impugned goods chargeable to duty as baggage as laid down under Section 12 of the Customs Act, 1962 and failed to pay the duty at the time of import. He carried the said goods with an intention to evade payment of the Customs duty leviable on these goods. Therefore duty was rightly demanded under Section 28 of the Act ibid and the demand confirmed after following due process of law. When duty was not paid at the time of import, the interest is chargeable on the duty amount where duty has not been paid on the goods in terms of Section 28 AA (now 28AB) of the Act, ibid. Hence interest is also rightly held to be payable by the impugned order on the duty demanded.

Government also finds no merit in the argument of the applicant that no interest is leviable on goods placed under seizure. Section 110 the Act ibid provides for seizure of goods liable for confiscation for improper importation into the country in terms of Section 111. Seizure and confiscation of goods does not absolve such goods from levy of duty and interest in turn is charged on such duty not paid. - Decided against the applicant.
