By no stretch of imagination can the recipient of cenvat invoices along with the goods be expected to understand or anticipate how much duty was actually to be paid by the supplier and take credit accordingly.

By no stretch of imagination can the recipient of cenvat invoices along with the goods be expected to understand or anticipate how much duty was actually to be paid by the supplier and take credit accordingly. A plain reading of the CCR 2004 also provides for credit of duty paid and not credit of duty that should have been paid.
