I support the views of Sh.Himansu Sekhar Ji. I further add that appeal (already filed) has to be withdrawn in terms of para-2(viii) of Circular No.1072/05/2019-CX dated 25.9.19

Dear Querist,

Though such a case is not eligible under the Litigation Category, such a person may choose to withdraw the appeal and furnish to the department an undertaking to not file any further appeal in the matter. In the instant case the assessee can make a declaration under the Arrears category.

Thanks to all the experts for valuable reply. My concern is that after withdrawing the appeal if , for some reason, I am found to be not eligible under the scheme as per their FAQ, then what will happen to my appeal ? The CESTAT may not permit me to restore!

Secondly, in any case if the declaration is accepted then the appeal is deemed to have been withdrawn. Therefore can I go file the declaration and on its acceptance I withdraw the appeal and inform the department.

Further clarification is humbly requested.

Sh.G.B.Rao has rightly advised you. As per latest FAQs (Second Edition) on this amnesty scheme, you are eligible for this scheme. Q.No.6 and answer is as follows:-

Q No.6 : What is the scope under the Scheme when adjudication order determining the duty/tax liability is passed and received prior to 30.06.2019, but the appeal is filed on or after 01.07.2019?

Ans. Such a case is not eligible under Litigation Category. However, such a person may choose to withdraw the appeal, and furnish to the department an undertaking to not file any further appeal in the matter. In this case, he can make a declaration under the Arrears Category.

You can see question mentioned by you remains the same but the answer has changed in latest Second Edition of FAQ. You are eligible. So you need not worry.

In view of the above, now there is no uncertainty.

Thanks & Thanks a lot to all the experts. I can definitely withdraw the appeal from the CESTAT and file a declaration under this scheme. So far so good. But the point that worries me is that if the declaration is not accepted then what ? I can't refile the same appeal once again even with a COD application. Where do I stand then?

All Experts, if time and convenience permitting this last query may also be replied.

Thanks

There is no room for 'ifs' and 'buts' in life. Be optimistic. Govt. has changed the answer of same question in your favour and still you are in a dilemma. You can find so many case laws in favour of assessees as well as Govt. on the same issue. It depends on proper understanding and interpretation.Be confident and go ahead. Have faith in experts' opinion.
