excise duty exemption on water treatement plant

Respected Sirs,

We are not excise registered dealer. We will be procuring the material from our vendors from other state. Since our contract with our customer will be on works contract basis ( lumpsum),. Our customer is not going to give any C form for any interstate supply.

Can we or our customer avail excise exemption for setting up of water treatment plant? If yes what will be the conditions we have to fulfill?

Please advice.




Excise duty is only applicable only over excisable goods and if in you are using any excisable goods in your water treatment plant then you will pay the Excise duty. You have to check what you are using that is comes under excisable goods or not. If any things comes under the excisable goods then you can check the what is the rate of dutys.
