Dear Friend ,
In my view , semi finished goods can be sent out for job work purposes under permission from Excise swhich are expected to be returned back after the required process from the Job worker.
In case , if any sample is required to send out for testing which is not returned after testing, you have no option except to clear the same on payment of duty against an excise invoice.
Sir We want to clear the goods for testing of product performance not for job work ( Under Rule 16(c))
And Rules are saying that excisable goods can clear for testing under above rule. Now question is :
Semi finish goods covered in excisable goods and if not then which rule allow to clear the goods for testing purpose on returnable basis.
Dear Mr. Manoj
Please note there are two Rules deals with for sending .....
Rule 16B - Semi Finished Goods
Rule 16-C - Finished Goods
Under both the above Rules, the facility of sending the goods without payment of duty subject to certain conditions and in both the cases , you may have to apply permission in the prescribed form.
In view of this , you may choose the relevant Rule from the above which suits your requirement.
