  6. We want to send reels to the jobworker and after coating at jobworker we want to dispatch with new nomenclature. Please advice the procedure

  7. I appreciate the analysis of the job work procedure in Central Excise. But I differ with your view that the job worker, who has manufactured the goods under job work, will not pay excise duty while removing the job-worked goods from the factory of the job worker, to the customer of the raw material supplier. You may agree that excise duty is leviable on manufacture of goods, the person who manufactures the goods is manufacturer and manufacturer is liable to pay excise duty at the time of removal of the same and not raw material supplier or owner. The principal being merely a supplier of raw materials cannot be the person to pay excise duty on the goods removed from the factory of his job worker, unless there is any such express condition in any permission granted by competent authority.
    If this view is not agreeable, you may please revert reasons. Further discussion can be carried on.
