3.Levy of additional duty equal to excise duty. (1) Any article
which is imported INTO India shall, in addition, be liable to a duty
(hereafter in this section referred to as the additional duty) equal
to the excise duty for the time being leviable on a like article if
produced or manufactured in India and if such excise duty on a like
article is leviable at any percentage of its value, the additional
duty to which the imported article shall be so liable shall be
calculated at that percentage, of the value of the imported article.

Explanation.-In this section, the expression “the excise duty for
the time being leviable on a like article if produced or manufactured
in India” means the excise duty for the time being in force which
would be leviable on a like article if produced or manufactured in
India or, if a like article is not so produced or manufactured, which
would be leviable on the class or description of articles to which
the imported article belongs, and where such duty is leviable at
different rates, the highest duty.

(2) For the purpose of calculating-under this section the
additional duty on any imported article, where such duty is leviable
at any percentage of its value, the value of the imported article
shall, notwithstanding anything contained in section 14 of the Customs
Act, 1962, ( 52 of 1962) be the aggregate of-

(i) the value of the imported article determined under sub-
section (1) of the said section 14 or the tariff value of
such article fixed under sub-section (2) of that section, as
the case may be; and

(ii) any duty of customs chargeable on that article under
section 12 of the Customs Act, 1962, (52 of 1962) and any sum
chargeable on that article under any law for the time being
in force as an addition to, and in the same manner as, a duty
of customs, but not including the duty referred to in sub-
section (1).

(3) If the Central Government is satisfied that it is necessary
in the public interest to levy on any imported article [whether on
such article duty is leviable under sub-section (1) or not] such
additional duty as would counter-balance the excise duty leviable on
any raw materials, components and ingredients of the same nature as,
or similar to those, used in the production or manufacture of such
article, it may, by notification in the Official Gazette, direct that
such imported article shall, in addition, be liable to an additional
duty representing such portion of the excise duty leviable on such raw
materials, components

Copper and articles thereof

NOTES

1. For the purpose of Heading No. 74.01/02 “master alloys” means
alloys [except copper phosphide (phosphor copper) containing more than
8 per cent. by weight of phosphorus] containing with other alloy
elements more than 10 per cent. by weight of copper, not usefully
malleable and commonly used as raw material in the manufacture of
other alloys or as de-oxidants, de-sulphurising agents or for similar
uses in the metallurgy of non-ferrous metals.

[Coper phosphide (phosphor copper) containing more than 8 per
cent. by weight of phosphorus falls within Chapter 28 and not within
this Chapter.]

3. In this Chapter, the following expressions have the meanings
hereby assigned to them:

(a) “wire” (Heading No. 74.03):

rolled, extruded, drawn or forged products of solid section,
of which the maximum cross-sectional dimension exceeds 6. millimetres and which, if they are flat, have a thickness
exceeding one-tenth of the width; also cast or sintered
products, of the same forms and dimensions, which have been
subsequently worked after production (otherwise than by
simple trimming or de-scaling), provided that they have not
thereby assumed the character of articles or products falling
within other Headings.

Wire-bars and billets with their ends tapered or otherwise
worked simply to facilitate their entry INTO machines for
converting them into, for example, wire-rod or tubes, are
however to be taken to be unwrought copper of Heading No.
74.01/02;

(c) “wrought plates, sheets, strip” (Heading No. 74.04/05)

flat-surfaced, wrought products (coiled or not), of which the
maximum cross-sectional dimension exceeds 6 millimetre but
does not exceed one-tenth of the width.

Heading No. 74.04/05 is to be taken to apply, inter alia, to such
products, whether or not cut to shape, perforated, corrugated, ribbed,
channelled, polished or coated, provided that they do not thereby
assume the character of articles or of products falling within other
Headings.

3. Heading No. 74.07/08 is to be taken to apply, inter alia, to
tubes, pipes and hollow bars which have been polished or coated, or
which have been shaped or worked, such as bent, coiled, threaded,
drilled, waisted, cone-shaped or finned Heading No. 74.07/08 is to be
taken to apply, inter alia, to tube and pipe fittings which have been
similarly treated.

1. This Chapter does not cover

(a) millstones, grindstones and other articles falling
within Chapter 68;

(b) appliances and machinery for example pumps) and parts
thereof, of ceramic material (Chapter 69)

(c) laboratory glassware of Heading No.70.17/18; machinery
and appliances and parts thereof, of glass (Heading No.70.20. or 70.21)

(d) heating equipment falling within Heading No.73.33/40 and
similar articles of other base metals (Chapters 74 to 81); or

(e) tools for working in the hand of Heading No. 85.05 or
electromechanical domestic appliances of Heading No. 85.06. /07.
2. Subject to the operation of Notes 3 and 4 to Section XVI a
machine or appliance which answers to a description in one or more of
the Headings

105.
Nos. 84.01/02 to 84.21 and at the same time to a description in one or
other of the Headings Nos, 84.22 to 84.60, is to be classified under
the former Heading and not the latter.

Heading No. 84.17 is, however, to be taken not to apply to:

(a) germination plant, incubators and brooders (Heading No.
84.28)

(b) grain dampening machines (Heading No. 84.29)

(c) diffusing apparatus for sugar juice extraction (Heading
No. 84.30)

(d) machinery for the heat-treatment of textile yarns,
fabrics or made up textile articles (Heading No. 84.40); or

(e) machinery or plant, designed for a mechanical
operation, in which a change of temperature, even if
necessary, is subsidiary.

Heading No. 84.19 is to be taken not to apply to:

(a) sewing Machines for closing bags or similar containers
(Heading No. 84.41); or

(b) office machinery of Heading No. 84.51/55.
3. (A) In Heading No,, 84.51/55, the expression “automatic data
processing machines” means

(a) digital machines HAVING storages capable of storing not
only the processing programme or programmes and the DATA to
be processed but also a programme for translating the formal
programming language in which the programmes are written into
machine language. These machines must have a main storage
which is directly accessible for the execution of a programme
and which has a capacity at least sufficient to store those
parts of the processing and translating programmes and the
DATA immediately necessary for the current processing ran.
They must also be able themselves, on the basis of the
instructions contained in the initial programme, to modify,
by logical decision, its execution during the processing run;

(b) analogue machines capable of simulating mathematical
models and comprising at least : analogue elements, control
elements and programming elements;

(c) hybrid machines consisting of either a digital machine
with analogue elements or an analogue machine with digital
elements.

(B) Automatic DATA processing machines may be in the form of
systems consisting of a variable number of separately-housed units. A
unit is to be regarded as being a part of the complete system if it
meets all the following conditions :

(a) it is connectable to the central processing unit
either directly or through one or more other units;

(b) it is specifically designed as part of such a system
[it must, in particular, unless it is a power supply unit be
able to accept or deliver DATA in a form (code or signals)
which can be used by the system].

Such units imported separately are also to be classified in
Heading No. 84.51/55.

106.

4. Heading No. 84.62 is to be taken to apply, inter alia, to
polished steel balls, the maximum and minimum diameters of which do
not differ FROM the nominal diameter by more than one per cent. or by
more than 0.05 millimetre, whichever is less. Other steel balls are
to be classified under Heading No. 73.33/ 40.

5. A machine which is used for more than one purpose is, for the
purposes of classification, to be treated as if its principal purpose
were its sole purpose.

Subject to Note 2 to this Chapter and Note 3 to Section XVI, a
machine whose principal purpose is not described in any Heading or for
which no one purpose is the principal purpose is, unless the context
otherwise requires, to be classified in Heading No, 84.59. Heading No.
84.59 is also to be taken to cover machines for making rope or cable
(for example, stranding, twisting or cabling machines) FROM metal
wire, textile yarn or any other material or FROM a combination of such
materials.

3. Apart FROM shavers and hair clippers, Heading No. 85.06/07 is
to be taken to apply only to the following electro-mechanical machines
of types commonly used for domestic purposes:

(a) vacuum cleaners, floor polishers, food grinders and
mixers, fruit juice extractors and fans, of any weight;

(b)other machines, provided the weight of such other machines
does not exceed 20 kilograms.

The Heading does not, however, apply to dish washing machines
(Heading No. 84.19), centrifugal and other clothes washing machines
(Heading No. 84.08 or 84.40), roller and other ironing machines
(Heading No. 84.16 or 84.40), sewing machines (Heading No. 84.41) or
to electro-thermic appliances (Heading No. 85.12).

4. In Heading No. 85.18/27,”printed circuits” are to be taken to
be circuits obtained by forming on an insulating base, by any printing
process (for example, embossing, plating-up etching)or by the “film
circuit” technique, conductor elements, contacts or other printed
components (for example, inductances, resistors, capacitors) alone or
interconnected according to a pre-established pattern, other than
elements which can produce, rectify, modulate or amplify an
electrical signal (for example, semi-conductor elements).

The term “printed circuits” does not cover circuits combined
with elements other than those obtained during the printing process.
Printed circuits may, however, be fitted with non-printed connecting
elements.

Thin-or thick-film circuits comprising passive and active
elements obtained during the same technological process are to be
classified in Heading No. 85.18/27.

5. In Heading No. 85.18/27 :

(A) “Diodes, transistors and similar semi-conductor devices” are
to be taken to be those devices the operation of which depends on
variations in resistivity on the application of an electric field;

(B) “Electronic micro-circuits” are to be taken to be:

(a) micro assemblies of the “fagot” module, moulded module,
micromodule and similar types; consisting of discrete, active
or both active and passive miniaturised components which are
combined and inter-connected;

(b) monolithic integrated circuits in which the circuit
elements (diodes, transistors, resistors, capacitors, inter-
connections, etc.) are created in the mass (essentially) and
on the surface of a semi-conductor material (doped
silicon,
for example) and are inseparably associated;

(c) hybrid integrated circuits in which passive and active
elements, some obtained by thin-or thick film technology
(resistors, capacitors, inter-connections, etc.) others by
semi-conductor technology (diodes, transistors, monolithic
integrated circuits, etc.), are combined, to all intents and
purposes indivisibly, on a single insulating substrate
(glass, ceramic, etc.). These circuits may also include
miniaturised discrete components.

For the classification of the articles defined in this Note,
Heading No. 85.18/27 shall take precedence over any other heading in
the Schedule which might cover them by reference to, in particular,
their function.
