Mumbai, India (PressExposure) March 08, 2011 -- In 2003 Government introduced Excise duty on textiles from Rs.1. The excise is charged from yarn to gray clothes to finished & readymade garments. Trade faces lots of confusion regarding departmental clarification & documentation process. After trade opposition the entire textile sector from yarn to garment kept out from excise with the optional scheme.
In the present budget, the optional scheme for payment of excise duty on readymade garments and textile made ups, which bear a brand name or which are sold under a brand name would no longer be available. An excise duty @10% is being imposed on such goods without Cenvat credit facility. (S.No. of notification No. 30/2004-CE as amended vide notification no.12 /2011-Central Excise refers).
The general SSI exemption has been extended to such goods. (Notification No. 8/2003-Central Excise as amended vide notification No.8 /2011-Central Excise dated 1st March, 2011 refers). The tariff value for charging duty on readymade garments and textile made-ups would be @ 60% of the retail sale price. (Notification No.20/2001- Central Excise (NT) as amended vide notification No.7 /2011-Central Excise (NT) refers).
Although this should take care of small manufacturers, it is abundantly clear that the levy does not apply to retail tailoring establishments that stitch garments in a customized manner to the size and style specifications of individual customers, whether it is out of the fabric purchased by the customer from the same establishment or a fabric supplied by the customer.
This levy takes effect from 01.03.2011, which means, all the garments / textile made ups which are cleared from the factory on or after 01.03.2011 would be subject to the central excise duty.
