tment. The original orders were confirmed by the Commissioner (Appeals) in the impugned order. 2. The learned Counsel for the appellants submitted that Section 11 of Central Excise Act, 1944 has no application in the present case.

e legal provisions of Section 11.

A plain reading of the above clause clearly shows that the appellants liability as lessee is only with reference to the taxes and fees on the aforesaid assets leased by them. The Central Excise duty, arrear has no linkage to the leased land except that the land belongs to M/s Kalani Industries and was leased to the appellants. I find that the lease deed provisions have no relevance or application to justify .....
