This is a typical question. I give the following for your reference
Since , your eligibility of claiming exemption under Notification No. 49/2003 ( I presume that this is an area based exemption), it is better that you have to submit an intimation letter to your jurisdictional excise Authorities about your intension of availing SSI exemption,( Subject to your meeting the eligible critiria prescribed in the SSI exemption) from 01.04.2016 and file the required declaration accordingly.
