The claim of cenvat credit is linked with the refund claim under section 11B of the Central Excise Act, 1944. Earlier the period of limitation was six months therefore, courts have allowed credit within the period of 6 months. Now the period of claiming refund is one year, you can claim the credit accordingly within one year on Inputs. However, in case of capital goods, the period of claiming cenvat credit may be more than one year but various other aspects are required to be looked into such is whether you have claimed depreciation or whether you were claiming exemption at the time of receipt of capital goods etc. etc.

CENVAT credit is required to be taken immediately on receipt of inputs in the factory. This, however, does not mean, nor is it even intended that if the manufacturer does not take credit as soon as the inputs are received in the factory, he would be denied the benefit of CENVAT credit such interpretation is not tenable. In respect of capital goods, which are included in the project import, the CENVAT credit shall be admissible only to the extent of an amount not exceeding 50% of the Additional Duty of Customs paid on such capital goods. However, on the other materials, which are not in the nature of capital goods, the CENVAT credit of the Additional Duty paid shall be allowed to the full extent.
