Sri Sarvaraya Sugars Ltd. Vs. Cce

Court : Customs Excise and Service Tax Appellate Tribunal CESTAT Hyderabad

1. The appellants manufacture aerated waters. They sought different assessable values in respect of goods sold ex-factory, and goods sold to adjoining states. This claim has been rejected under the impugned orders on the ground that once ex-factory prices are available, there is no requirement to approve different prices for different buyers. The order also held that whole-sale dealers in the state of manufacture and adjoining states did not constitute two different classes of dealers.2. As against the above, the contention of the appellant is that on account of various factors prices vary from area to area and it is permissible to treat dealers in different geographical areas as different class of buyers. The assessee has relied on the decision of this Tribunal in the case of Shriram Foods & Fertilizers Ltd. Vs.C.C.E. Delhi [1996 (85) ELT 34 (Trib)], Gora Malhari Ram Ltd. Vs.Collector of Central Excise, Delhi [1994 (69) ELT 269 (Trib.) ect. in support of their contention.3. We ha...

Cce Vs. Andhra Pradesh Indl. Glasses Ltd.

Court : Customs Excise and Service Tax Appellate Tribunal CESTAT Hyderabad

1. The dispute is about inclusion of a part of the cost recovered towards transport. It is being pointed out by the Revenue that the amount realized from the buyers towards transport was more than the actual cost incurred on the transport.
