Also, other issue related to the used waste sand which is of the value Nil (Refer separate Valuation Certificate by Engineer) will have any impact on valuation was raised.

A.A. Chahure headed the two-member bench of AAR and gave the ruling that the services provided by the applicant are a Supply of Goods and not the Supply of Job Work Services.

The Authority, while addressing another issue ruled that used waste sand which is of the value Nil (Refer separate Valuation Certificate by Engineer) will have an impact on valuation.

The Maharastra AAR explained its judgement as to the conversion of waste sand sent by the principal to job worker by the latter to get sand which is usable in foundries would be a process which has to get regarded as manufacture. Consequently, taxability of the final product as goods would be appropriate. The waste sand received at NIL value from principal can also be said to influence the value of the final product where it was found to be marginally lower than the market price for fresh sand.

With Warm Regards,

CL Bureau.
