Department serves final notice on distillery as it fails to reply

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, October 22

The Excise and Taxation Department has served a final memo on Ambala-based NV Distillery Private Limited after its failure to reply to the show-cause notice served earlier this month following inspection.

In the memo served on Thursday, the Excise and Taxation Commissioner told the distillery to submit its reply immediately, failing which "all facts will be brought to the notice of the competent authority".

The department had, on October 6, served a notice to NV Distillery at Bandholi village in Ambala, demanding an explanation over the shortcomings found during inspection of the unit.

Instead of replying to the notice, the distillery had, on October 10, written to the department, demanding a copy of the inspection report prepared by officials who visited the unit and a copy of the video recording of the premises mentioned in the notice.

The distillery was supposed to reply to the notice by October 16. The distillery sent a reminder to the department that day, asking officials to provide required material so that it could reply.

Sameer Goyal, managing director, NV Distillery, said the unit was well within its right to demand a copy of the inspection report and video recording so that a proper reply could be prepared.

Sources said these were dilatory tactics.
