Central Excise Duty In India

The central excise duty is a major category of tax items in India affecting many people. The central excise duty in India is being charged or levied on such goods which are manufactured here and primarily meant for home consumption. The element of central excise duty comes into picture as liability as soon as the products are manufactured.

The fact is that the law does not make it mandatory for manufacturer to sale his products, on the other hand the excise duty is payable on the removal of goods. The law stipulates that any person who produces or manufactures excisable goods or stores any such goods in warehouse should pay the duty leviable on such goods.
The central excise duty is nothing but the tax on manufacturing which is paid by the manufacturer and passes the incidence to the respective clients. The term excisable duty gets specified in the first and second schedule to the central excise tariff act 1985.
And such levying of duty should be in consonance with the respective provisions provided in the law. Law highlight the fact that nobody can remove the excisable goods from place to place without paying the excise duty unless specified otherwise.
