M.V. Ravindran, J. 1. All these three stay petitions are being disposed of by a common order as they arising against the order-in-original passed which confirmed demand of Rs. 1.59 Crores and Rs. 11.62 Lakhs, interest thereof and penalties on all the appellants. 2. The said amount of Rs. 1.59 Crores has been calculated as an amount of 10% of the value of exempted goods manufactured and cleared by availing CENVAT credit of common inputs while the demand of Rs. 11.62 Lakhs is in respect of ineligible CENVAT credit availed. 3. After hearing both sides at length for sometime on the stay petitions, we are of the view that appeals themselves could be disposed of at this juncture as the issue lies in a narrow compass.
