Introduction
Central Excise Duty is an indirect tax levied on goods manufactured in India for home consumption. When the goods manufactured in India are exported, they are exempt from excise duty. Generally, manufacturer of commodities is responsible to pay duty to the Government. This indirect taxation is administered through an enactment of the Central Government viz., The Central Excise Act, 1944 and other connected rules- which provide for levy, collection and connected procedures. The rates at which the excise duty is to be collected are stipulated in the Central Excise Tariff Act, 1985. It is mandatory to pay Central Excise duty payable on the goods manufactured, unless exempted, for e.g. duty is not payable on the goods exported out of India. Further various other exemptions are also notified by the Government from the payment of duty by the manufacturers. Detailed procedures have been prescribed to ensure that goods cleared and got exemption from excise are actually exported out of India.

Entry 84 of List I of the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution of India, read with Article 246, empowers the Central Government to levy duties of excise on tobacco and other goods manufactured or produced in India except alcoholic liquors for human consumption, opium, narcotics, etc., but including medical and toilet preparations containing alcohol, opium or narcotics. Power to levy excise duty on alcoholic liquors, opium and narcotics is vested with the State Governments under Entry 54 of List III of Seventh Schedule to the Constitution. The law governing central excise is contained in the Central Excise Act, 1944. Section 3 of the Act, known as the charging section, empowers the central government to levy and collect a duty of excise on all excisable goods and at the rates set forth in the Central Excise Tariff Act, 1985.

2. Chargeability of Excise Duty
By way of summary we may say that excise duty is payable on movable goods manufactured or produced in India for home consumption provided they are included in schedules to Central Excise Tariff Act, 1985 and are marketable. A brief description of the different requirements of the above definition follows. i. Goods

The word ‘goods’ is not defined in Excise Act. By reference to the definitions in other enactments like Sale of Goods Act and the description in the Excise Tariff Schedule, it can be easily inferred that only movable goods are liable to excise. Immovable properties fall outside its purview. ii. Manufactured or produced

Excise duty can be levied only for manufacture or production. Manufacture...
