Not required to reverse the credit taken on capital goods in Feb.,16. You have availed the whole credit prior to expiry of second financial year. Assessee can take full credit in second year, if he does not take credit on capital goods in first year.You have qualified the condition of Rule 4 (2) (a) of the Credit Rules inasmuch as 'NIL' credit taken in first financial year, does not exceed 50%. There are so many case laws to strengthen this view. You have not committed an offence by not taking credit in first financial year.
It will totally depend on the accounting treatment which had been provided while capitalization of capital goods. If the capital goods are capitalized along with the amount of CENVAT credit and you had availed depreciation on such amount in the 2014 and 2015 then you would not be able to avail the CENVAT credit. Further, it is not understood by us that if Invoice was found in Feb 2016 then how can it be entered in Feb 2014. It seems that there is some typo error in your query.
Please check facts.
There appears a typographical error in the body of the text when the heading reflect the date of availment is Feb,16. Kasturi sir is correct,but after the amendment there is an anomaly. The circular tells when the entry is made in the register, then for subsequent amounts there is no bar. When the availment is not made even for a nil amount, it appears, the limitation of one year is applicable when the entire entry is made after two years.
We are sharing with you a latest judgement which is in your favour. But also please check the facts on the accounting treatment on capitalisation of capital goods with or with out CENVAT credit to avoid any unwarranted situation which may occur in near future.

Dear Sh.Himansu Sha Ji,. Circulars have no statutory force. I have seen Board backtracks whenever there is a hullabaloo by the trade or any Court settles the dust. Whenever there is not clarity in law we resort to judgements. Sometimes case laws are conflicting on the same issue. So an assessee has to be cautious while following any judgement.
Your participation is valuable as we learn from each other.
There appears no decision of the honourable tribunals after the amendmentsinCCR . Sir with due regard to your views with humility I differ. After all the decisions are for the prior periods. Though Board has clarified basing upon the apex court decision that the circulars are not binding upon the afj. Authority, the department is bound by the circulars.
Kindly do not take it otherwise. My understandings on the issue just placed.
Sh.Himansu Shaw Ji,. Difference of opinion is not bad. It leads to better results.
Thank you sir
Sh.Himansu Sha Ji,
You have not uploaded your profile on TMI. I am interested. Will you do so ?
Law develops when it is discussed.
