dering the above factual background, the invocation of extended period in the present case is not legally sustainable. Accordingly, the demand of differential duty is to be restricted to the normal period which shall be payable with applicable interest by the appellants. On the same reasoning, we find imposition of penalty equal to the duty amount is also not sustainable. Since, the excise duty applicable on retained sales tax amount has not been collected by the assessee from the buyers, they a .....

The principle laid down by the Hon ble Supreme Court in the above-mentioned case is equally applicable to the facts of the present case. The legal position that emerges is that if the assessee charged and collected amount t .....
