TH 9031 as admittedly that is the only competing entry.

The sensors in question are essentially a part or component of the apparatus for ascertaining the best carburettor setting as these sensors enable such apparatus to detect the oxygen levels in the exhaust gases. - opinion of U.S. Customs cited by the ld. Departmental Representative was in respect of a different product namely, "sensidyne gas detector tubes" and "gas decometer tubes", Further, the opinion of customs administration .....

fuel to engine accordingly. Rich mixture is caused by the incomplete combustion of fuel in the engine leading to emission of raw gases (hydrocarbons), carbon monoxide and also nitrogen oxide when combustion temperature is very high. Lean Mixture; When the combustion of gases generated due to burning of fuel in engine is optimum (stoichiometric or theoretical combustion) i.e., HC & CO are less likely to be generated when air fuel mixture is lean, however, excessively lean mixture result in e .....

omotive forces as a concentration cell." It also submitted the extract from Wikipedia to press home the point that these sensors are not measuring devices. It also cited the judgement in the case of Pentax Engineering Pvt. Ltd. Vs. CC, Bombay [1998 (99) ELT 368 (Tri.)]. CESTAT judgement in the case of Vasta Marketing Vs. CC, Chennai [2010 (253) ELT 129 (Tri- Chennai)] was also cited by the appellant. 3. The ld. Departmental Representative, on the other hand, stated that the impugned goods a .....

ons of both sides. The goods involved are oxygen sensors. Sensor is a general name for detecting device used to locate or detect presence of matter or energy. Apart from the explanation given by the appellant, Wikipedia write-up on oxygen sensors (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/oxygen_sensor), clearly records that "oxygen sensors do not directly measure the air or the fuel entering the engine. But when information from oxygen sensors is coupled with information from other sources it can be us .....

d as examples in the said Chapter Heading 9027. These sensors also cannot be said to be instruments and apparatus for measuring or checking viscosity, porosity, expansion surface tension or the like because what they do is nothing at all like checking viscosity porosity, expansion or surface tension. These also do not check the quantities of heat, sound or light. Thus, the impugned goods do not belong to Chapter Heading 9027. Once their classification under Chapter Heading 9027 is ruled out, the .....

arts of the ignition system, for ascertaining the best carburettor setting (by analysing exhaust gases) or for measuring the compression in the cylinders" are covered thereunder. The sensors in question are essentially a part or component of the apparatus for ascertaining the best carburettor setting as these sensors enable such apparatus to detect the oxygen levels in the exhaust gases. 6. We find that the opinion of U.S. Customs cited by the ld. Departmental Representative was in respect .....
