Duty on Pan Masala Packing Machines - compounded levy - Board’s clarifications are very categorical and clear wherein it is stated that “Reading of proviso to Rule 7 to the Rule 9 of PPM (CDCD) Rules, 2008 makes it clear that the default for payment of duty for one month would not be treated as default for all the remaining part of the full financial year. However, the default would continue till the duty for the said month is paid”. Hence, in the instant case, the learned Commissioner has rightly demanded the differential duty along with interest for the available packing machines during the period of default. - AT
