According to Rule 12 (5) of Central Excise rules, 2017 "Where any return referred to in this rule is submitted by the assessee after due date as specified for every return, the assessee shall pay to the credit of the Central Government, an amount calculated at the rate of one hundred rupees per day subject to a maximum of twenty thousand rupees for the period of delay in submission of each such return or statement.

Therefore the maximum penalty shall be ₹ 20,000/- only. It cannot be ₹ 1,84,000/[-.

First of all there is no relaxation in Central Excise on the ground of NIL return or nil production. There is relaxation in Service Tax only. ER-1 return for May, 17 was to be filed by 10.6.17 and which has been filed in June, 18. This one return has been delayed by one year. Now calculate penalty for each return up to May, 18. Emphasis is supplied on each return. Penalty of ₹ 20,000/- must not exceed for each return.

I endorse the views of Shri Sethi.
