ding to which the duty payable on such DTA clearances would be the aggregate of the duties of customs which would be leviable under the Customs Act, 1962. Viewed in this light, we do not find any infirmity in the above conclusions arrived at by lower appellate authority. Proviso to Section 3 (1) of Central Excise Act provides measure of Central Excise duty leviable on DTA clearance by EOU notwithstanding the manner of its calculation. The fact that duty is to be calculated on value determined un .....

they paid duty at the rate of 12.36% on the DTA clearances which, much later, department directed them to pay at the rate of 23.89%. It is also not disputed that payment of duty, albeit at the lower and incorrect rate of 12.36%, was known to department since ER-2 returns were filed by the assessee throughout the period in question. 6.5 We also take note of the correspondence in OC No.32/2013 dt.14-03-2013 of the Range officer and reply dt. 22.3.2013 given by assessee, the latter intimating the .....
