Veterinary drugs were leviable to Central Excise duty under Chapter Heading Nos.30 & 38 of Central Excise Tariff Act. Correct classification depends upon the specific veterinary drugs manufactured by you. So your products qualify the criteria of , "Eligible Duties" In the absence of duty paying documents Govt. allowed deemed credit (60%/40%) in respect of stock of inputs held on 1.7.17. Such deemed credit was subject to the condition, "within such time and such manner as may be prescribed "inserted retrospectively w.e.f. 1.7.17 As you are well aware that declaration was to be filed in TRANS-2 within stipulated period. After filing such declaration, the stock was to be verified physically on the basis of declaration. Now at this stage stock cannot be verified physically by the department.
In my view, as per the directions of Hon'ble Supreme Court vide Order dated 22.7.22 in the case of UOI Vs.Filco Trade Centre (P) Ltd. & Others - 2022 (7) TMI 1232 - SC ORDER, you can file TRANS-2 on the basis of books of accounts, it being a statutory record. Common Portal system has been opened for ALL for two months.
The proviso inserted retrospectively should not be a bottleneck, especially, in view of the directions issued to UOI by the Apex Court. As per legal definition of the word 'aggrieved' in my view you are eligible to file TRANS-2. Emphasis is laid on 'ANY' Aggrieved registered assessee.
