There are judgements on this issue. I shall post soon. No doubt Govt. and Private Sectors both are equal in the eyes of law. But benefit to Govt. can be given on the ground that there is no mala fide intention involved.

Nobody can exonerate late fee but penalty on account of mala fide intention can be exonerated. or may be set aside.

Since your department is Central Government Department no cash payment is required. Only book adjustments is there. Similar situation arised in Department of Telecom also all over India. The case is in favor of Department of Telecom. You may refer to your nearby BSNL office in this regard.

But Sir, lack of knowledge is not an excuse for non-compliance. However, it need to be proved that there is no malafide intention to evade payment of tax.

Sh.Kalyani Ji,

You are also right. If mala fide intention is proved, the court will not spare. Every case has different facts and circumstances.

Yes Sir, this is the most difficult part to explain. The department takes stand in most of the cases that since the department has identified the defect and if that was not done then the assessee would have continued to escape payment of tax. Thus there is intentional evasion of payment of tax.

We are not aware of the full facts of the case. So we cannot infer on the basis of a guess only. I have performed my moral duty by posting case laws in favour GPO.

Such a nature of case arised in Department of Telecom. We have won the case in favor of the Department.

Integrity of the Govt. department cannot be doubted. On the other hand defeat at three stages i.e. at the level of Original Adjudicating Authority, Commissioner (Appeals), CESTAT indicates that either the case has not been properly represented or strong evidence of evasion of Service Tax is present. It may be technical lapse i.e. not understanding and interpreting the law properly. It does not appear to me the case of late bookish adjustment. It appears to me that GPO could not collect ST from the consumer assuming that exemption was available. We cannot take plea that both departments pertain to Central Govt. because we cannot forget that revenue comes from pocket of common man/public. Penalty under Section 76 is imposed upon for such technical evasion. Once an official GPO does not collect Service Tax from consumer, it cannot be recovered as that consumer may not be traceable and loss of revenue is caused, knowingly or unknowingly, both are separate grounds.

Sri Kasturi Sir, i fully agree with your views. If the case is genuine then the querist should fightout the case through proper advocate.

This case is a good example stating that law is equal to all.

SIR

WE HAVE FILED CASE IN HIGH COURT BUT SERVICE TAX DEPARTMENT SERVE NOTICE UNDER SEC 87 TO POSTMASTER AND HIGHER AUTHORITIES IS PRESSING HARDSHIP TO RECOVER AMOUNT FROM EMPLOYEES AND PAY TO SERVICE TAX DEPARTMENT.

IN THIS CASE BOTH DEPARTMENTS ARE UNDER CENTRAL GOVERNMENT . ANY OTHER PROCESS TO FIND OUT SOLUTION BY INTERVENING BY GOVERNMENT OF INDIA

PLEASE MENTION

How should a tax default be recovered from employees of the post office, if the default is of the post office.

ST cannot be recovered from salary of an official of G.P.O. Penalty can be imposed upon a Govt. employee and can be recovered from his salary on account of negligence of duty.
