Dear Mr. sv bhasker,

Pls.find below the extract from the Land Mark Supreme Judgement -(Jayanti Foods processing)-

The following would be factors to include the goods in Section 4A(1) & (2) of the Act:

i) The goods should be excisable goods;

ii) They should be such as are sold in the package;

iii) There should be requirement in the SWM Act or the Rules made thereunder or any other law to declare the price of such goods relating to their retail price on the package.

iv) The Central Government must have specified such goods by notification in the Official Gazette;

 v) The valuation of such goods would be as per the declared retail sale price on the packages less the amount of abatement. If all these factors are applicable to any goods,

then alone the valuation of the goods and the assessment of duty would be under Section 4A of the Act.

Thank you Sharmaji for your reply.

What I could understand from your reply is that packaged water is assessed to duty under Section 4 as factor No. (iv) is not satisfied in this case as the Notification No. 49/2008CE(NT) does not specify the said item.

In continuation to the appended reply, this is to inform you that Legal Meterology Act has replaced the SWM Act.
