partly sold and partly consumed

Valuation when no other rule is applicable

Pole were manufactured and used in transmission of electricity . These were not used in manufacturing of other goods rule 8 is not applicable Since no other rule is applicable , adopting rule 8 ie. Cost of production plus 10% is resonable.

The simplified provision has been probably made as in most of the cases, the buyer will be able to get Cenvat credit of duty paid on inputs and there is hardly any incentive to avoid any payment of duty. Thus, the formula for determining value is simple. If the cost of production based upon general principles of costing of a commodity is Rs. 10,000 per unit, the assessable value of the goods shall be Rs. 11,000 per unit.
