Head Note:
Re-quantification of service tax liability - Valuation - Maintenance or repair service of transformers not manufactured - bonafide doubt - claim of deduction from the value - Held that: - Various facets of that aspect were highlighted in the grounds of appeal itself, but the tribunal understood it as only a limited request and for re-quantification. We do not see how the tribunal could have concluded that a casual perusal of the invoices produced before it indicates that the appellant assessee has charged separately for the material consumed and for the service of the repairs of transformers. The tribunal holds that the payment of service tax liability in relation to maintenance or repair service post 15th June, 2006 needs re-quantification, but if that is how it has understood the matter, re-quantification is not reconsideration of the limited prayer of the assessee regarding cost of the material that needs to be reduced from the value of tax liability due.

We do not, therefore, think that a restricted remand was sought by the appellant, as is erroneously understood in the order under appeal. - Be that as it may, both aides agree before us that for this limited extent, the matter should go back to the tribunal itself and need not be sent to the adjudicating authority.

The assessee would rely on those very materials, which were before the adjudicating authority and forming part of the paper book or records before the tribunal and nothing more. On these materials itself, the assessee would be able to convince the tribunal that the segregation or requantification, as prayed should be made. If this is how the matter is understood by the assessee, then, we see no justification for remanding the matter to the adjudicating authority.

We set aside that part of the order, which we have reproduced above i.e. para 6.5 and the ultimate direction in para 6.7 with regard to liability of the appellant to pay service tax post 15th June, 2005 and direct that even if the said service attracts tax and which is admissible and payable, its computation be done afresh in accordance with law - Matter remanded back before the tribunal.
