The titles of Sections and Chapters are provided for ease of reference only; for legal purposes, classification shall be determined according to the terms of the headings and any relative Section or Chapter Notes and, provided such headings or Notes do not otherwise require, according to the provisions hereinafter contained. 2. (a) Any reference in a heading to goods shall be taken to include a reference to that goods incomplete or unfinished, provided that, the incomplete or unfinished goods have the essential character of the complete or finished goods. It shall also be taken to include a reference to that goods complete or finished (or falling to be classified as complete or finished by virtue of this rule), removed unassembled or disassembled. (b) Any reference in a heading to a material or substance shall be taken to include a reference to mixtures or combinations of that material or substance with other materials or substances. Any reference to goods of a given material or substance shall be taken to include a reference to goods consisting wholly or partly of such material or substance. The classification of goods consisting of more than one material or substance shall be according to the principles contained in rule 3. 3. When by application of sub-rule (b) of rule 2 or for any other reason, goods are, prima facie, classifiable under two or more headings, classification shall be effected as follows: (a) The heading which provides the most specific description shall be preferred to headings providing a more general description. However, when two or more headings each refer to part only of the materials or substances contained in mixed or composite goods or to part only of the items in a set, those headings are to be regarded as equally specific in relation to those goods, even if one of them gives a more complete or precise description of the goods. (b) Mixtures, composite goods consisting of different materials or made up of different components, and goods put up in sets, which cannot be classified by reference to (a), shall be classified as if they consisted of the material or component which gives them their essential character, insofar as this criterion is applicable. (c) When goods cannot be classified by reference to (a) or (b), they shall be classified under the heading which occurs last in the numerical order among those which equally merit consideration. 4. Goods which cannot be classified in accordance with the above rules shall be classified under the heading appropriate to the goods to which they are most akin. 5. For legal purposes, the classification of goods in the sub- headings of a heading shall be determined according to the terms of those sub-headings and any related Chapter Notes and, mutatis mutandis, to the above rules, on the understanding that only sub- headings at the same level are comparable. For the purposes of this rule, the relative Section Notes also apply, unless the context otherwise requires. 92 General Explanatory Notes

1. Where in column (3) of this Schedule, the description of an article or group of articles under a heading is preceded by "-", the said article or group of articles shall be taken to be a sub- classification of the article or group of articles covered by the said heading. Where, however, the description of an article or group of articles is preceded by "-", the said article or group of articles shall be taken to be a sub-classification of the immediately preceding description of article or group of articles which has "-".

Except for the goods of heading No. 39.18 or 39.19, plastics, rubber, and articles thereof, printed with motifs, characters of pictorial representations, which are not merely incidental to the primary use of the goods, fall in Chapter 49. CHAPTER 39 PLASTICS AND ARTICLES THEREOF NOTES 1. Throughout this Schedule, the expression plastics means those materials of heading Nos. 39.01 to 39.14 which are or have been capable, either at the moment of polymerisation or at some subsequent stage, of being formed under external influence (usually heat and presure, if necessary with a solvent or plasticiser) by moulding, casting, extruding, rolling or other process into shapes which are retained on the removal of the external influence. Throughout this Schedule, any reference to `plastics' also includes vulcanised fibre. The expression, however, does not apply to materials regarded as textile materials of Section XI. 2. This Chapter does not cover: (a) Linoxyn (heading No. 15.08): Waxes (Chapter 27 or Chapter 34); (b) Separate chemically defined organic compounds (Chapter 29); (c) Heparin or its salts (Chapter 30); (d) Stamping foils (Chapter 32); (e) Organic surface active agents or preparations (Chapter 34); (f) Run gums or ester gums (Chapter 38); (g) Synthetic rubber, as defined for the purposes of Chapter 40, or articles thereof; (h) Saddlery or harness or trunks, suitcases, handbags or other containers (Chapter 42): (i) Plaits, wickerwork or other articles of Chapter 46; (j) Wall coverings of Chapter 48; (k) Articles of Section XI (textiles and textile articles); (l) Articles of Section XII (for example, foot wear, headgear, umbrellas, sun umbrellas, walking-sticks and parts thereof); (m) Imitation jewellery (Chapter 71); (n) Articles of Section XVI (machines and mechanical or electrical appliances); 158 (o) Parts of aircraft or vehicles (Section XVII); (p) Articles of Chapter 90 (for example, optical elements, spectacle frames, drawing instruments); (q) Articles of Chapter 91 (for example, clock or watch cases); (r) Articles of Chapter 92 (for example, musical instruments or parts thereof); (s) Articles of Chapter 94 (for example, furniture, lamps and lighting fittings, illuminated signs); (t) Articles of Chapter 95 (for example, toys, games, sports requisites); or (u) Articles of Chapter 96 (for example, brushes, buttons, slide fasteners, combs, mouthpieces or stems for smoking pipes, cigarette holders or the like, parts of vacuum flasks or the like, pens, propelling pencils). 3. Heading Nos. 39.01 to 39.11 apply only to goods of a kind produced by chemical synthesis, falling in the following categories:-- (a) Liquid synthetic polyolefins of which less than 60 per cent. by volume distils at 300C, after conversion to 1,013 milibars when a reduced-pressure distillation method is used (heading Nos. 39.01 and 39.02); (b) Resins, not highly polymerised, of the coumarone-indene type (heading No. 39.11); (c) Other synthetic polymers with an average of at least 5 monomer units; (d) Silicones (heading No. 39.10); (e) Resols (heading No. 39.09) and other prepolymers. 4. For the purposes of this Chapter, except where the context othervise requires, copolymers (including co-polycondensates, co- polyaddition products, block copolymers and graft copolymers) and polymer blends are to be classified in the heading covering polymers of that comonomer which predominates by weight over every other single comonomer, comonomers whose polymers fall in the same heading being regarded as constituting a single comonomer. If no single comonomer predominates, copolymers or polymer blends, as the case may be, are to be classified in the heading which occurs last in the numerical order among those which equally merit consideration. The expression "copolymers" covers all polymers in which no single monomer contributes 95 per cent. or more by weight to the total polymer content. 5. Chemically modified polymers, that is those in which only appendages to the main polymer chain have been changed by chemical reaction, are to be classified in the heading appropriate to the unmodified polymer. This provision does not apply to graft copolymers. 159 6. In heading Nos. 39.01 to 39.14, the expression `primary forms' applies only to the following forms:-- (a) Liquids and pastes, including dispersions (emulsions and suspensions) and solutions; (b) Blocks of irregular shape, lumps, powders (including moulding powders), granules, flakes and similar bulk forms, and the conversion of any one primary form into another shall amount to `manufacture'. 7. Heading No. 39.15 does not apply to waste, parings and scrap of a single thermoplastic material, transformed into primary forms (heading Nos. 39.01 to 39.14). 8. For the purposes of heading No. 39.17, the expression `tubes, pipes and hoses' means hollow products, whether semi-manufactures or finished products, of a kind generally used for conveying, conducting or distributing gases or liquids (for example, ribbed garden hose, perforated tubes). This expression also includes sausage casings and other lay-flat tubing. However, except for the last-mentioned, those having an internal cross-section, other than round, oval, rectangular (in which the length does not exceed 1.5 times the width) or in the shape of a regular polygon are not to be regarded as tubes, pipes and hoses but as profile shapes. 9. For the purposes of heading No. 39.18, the expression `wall or ceiling coverings of plastics' applies to products in rolls, of a width not less than 45 Cms suitable for wall or ceiling decoration, consisting of plastics fixed permanently on a backing of any material other than paper, the plastic layer (on the face side) being grained, embossed, coloured, design-printed or otherwise decorated. 10. In heading Nos. 39.20 and 39.21, the expression "plates, sheets, film, foil and strip" applies only to plates, sheets, film, foil and strip (other than those of Chapter 54) and to blocks of regular geometric shape, whether or not printed or otherwise surface- worked, uncut or cut into rectangles (including squares) but not further worked (even if when so cut, they become articles ready for use). 11. Heading No. 39.23 applies only to the following articles, namely:-- (a) Reservoirs, tanks (including septic tank), vats and similar containers, of a capacity exceeding 300 litres; (b) Structural elements used, for example, in floors, wells or partitions, ceilings or roofs; (c) Gutters and fittings therefor; (d) Doors, windows and their frames and thresholds for doors; (e) Balconies, balustrades, fencing, gates and similar barriers; (f) Shutters, blinds (including venetian blinds) and similar articles and parts and fittings thereof; (g) Large-scale shelving for assembly and permanent installation, for example, in shops, workshops, warehouses; (h) Baths, washbasins and similar sanitaryware; articles for the conveyance and packing of goods; tableware and kitchenware; 160 (i) Ornamental architectural features, for example, fiutings, eupolas, dovecotes; and (j) Fittings and mountings intended for permanent installation in or on doors, windows, staircases, walls or other parts of buildings, for example, knobs, handles, hooks, brackets, towel rails, switch-plates and other protective plates. 12. In heading Nos. 39.20 and 39.21, the expression `flexible' means an article which has a modulus of elasticity either in flexture or in tension of not over 700 kilograms per square centimetre at 23C and 50 per cent. relative humidity when tested in accordance with the method of test for stiffness of plastics (ASTM Designation D-747-63), for flexural properties of plastics (ASTM Designation D-790-63), for tensile properties of plastics (ASTM Designation D-638-64T), or for tensile properties of thin plastic sheeting (ASTM Designation D-882- 64T) and `rigid' means all articles other than `flexible' as defined above. 13. In heading No. 39.21 `rigid polyurethane foam means cellular polyurethane with compressive strength of 0.418 to 28.14 Kg./Cm2 and flexural strength of 1.05 to 28.14 Kg./Cm2 when tested in accordance with American Standard (Designation ASTM-D-2341). 14. Within any one heading of this Chapter, copolymers (including co-polycondensates, co-polyaddition products, block copolymers and graft copolymers) are to be classified in the same subheading as homopolymers of the predominant comonomer, and chemically modified polymers of the kind specified in Note 5 above are to be classified in the same subheading as the unmodified polymer, provided that such copolymers or chemically modified polymers are not more specifically covered by any other subheading and that there is no residual subheading named "Other" in the series of subheadings concerned. Polymer blends are to be classified in the same subheading as copolymers (or homopolymers, as the case may be) of the same monomers in the same proportions. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Heading Sub- Description of goods Rate of duty No. heading No. ---------------------------------------------------------------------

(A) Articles classifiable in Chapters 50 to 55 or in heading No. 58.06 or 59.02 and of a mixture of two or more textile materials are to be classified as if consisting wholly of that one textile material which predominates by weight over any other single textile material. (B) For the purposes of the above rule:-- (i) Gimped horsehair yarn (Chapter 51) and metallised yarn (Chapter 56) are to be treated as a single textile material the weight of which is to be taken as the aggregate of the weights of its components; for the classification of woven fabrics, metal thread is to be regarded as a textile material; (ii) The choice of appropriate heading shall be effected by determining first the Chapter and then the applicable heading within that Chapter, disregarding any materials not classified in that Chapter; (iii) When both Chapters 54 and 55 are involved with any other Chapter, Chapters 54 and 55 are to be treated as a single Chapter; 188 (C) If the classification of a yarn or fabric cannot be determined under the foregoing clauses for the reason that two or more of the following fibres or yarns that is to say,-- (a) Silk (including silk noil); (b) Wool; (c) Cotton; (d) Flax, jute and ramie; (e) Synthetic staple fibre or yarn thereof; and (f) Artificial staple fibre or yarn thereof, are equal in weight, in any yarn or fabric, as the case may be, then such one of those zbres or yarns, as the case may be, the predominance of which would render such yarn or fabric fall under that Chapter or heading of this Schedule which read with the relevant notification, if any, for the time being in force issued under the Central Excise Rules, 1944, attracts the highest amount of duty payable, shall be deemed to be predominant in such yarn or fabric and accordingly, such yarn or fabric shall be deemed to fall under the applicable Chapter or heading, as the case may be. (D) Throughout this Schedule, `man-made fibres' means staple fibres and filaments of organic polymers produced by manufacturing process, either:-- (i) By polymerisation of organic monomers, such as polyamides, polyesters, polyurethanes or polyvinyl derivatives; or (ii) By chemical transformation of natural organic polymers (for example, cellulose, casein, proteins or algae), such as viscose rayon, cellulose acetate, cupro or alginates. The terms `synthetic' and `artificial' used in relation to fibres mean: synthetic: fibres as defined at (i); artificial: fibres as defined at (ii). The terms `man made', `synthetic' and `artificial' shall have the same meanings when used in relation to `textile materials'. 3. For the purposes of heading Nos. 52.03, 52.04, 54.02, 54.04 and 55.05 and 55.06 `sewing thread' means multiple (folded) or cabled yarn:-- (a) Put up on supports (for example, reels, tubes) of a weight including support not exceeding 1,000 grams; (b) Dressed; and (c) With a final "Z" or "S" twist. 4. For the purposes of this Section, `high tenacity yarn' means yarn having a tenacity, expressed in cN/tex (centinewtons per tex), greater than the following: Single yarn of nylon or other polyamides, or of polyesters 60cN/tox Multiple (folded) or cabled yarn of nylon or other polyamides, or of polyesters 55cN/tox Single, multiple (folded) or cabled yarn of viscose rayon 27cN/tox 189 5. For the purposes of this Section, `made up' means:-- (a) Cut otherwise than into squares or rectangles; (b) Produced in the finished state, ready for use (or merely needing separation by cutting dividing threads), without sewing or other working (for example, certain dusters, towels, table cloths, scarf squares, blankets); (c) Hemmed or with rolled edges, or with a knotted fringe at any of the edges, but excluding fabrics, the cut edges of which have been prevented from unravelling by whipping or by other simple means; (d) Cut to size and having undergone a process of drawn thread work; (e) Assembled by sewing, gumming or otherwise (other than piece goods consisting of two or more lengths of identical material joined end to end and piece goods composed of two or more textiles assembled in layers, whether or not padded); (f) Knited or crocheted to shape, presented in the form of a number of items in the length. 6. Chapters 50 to 55 and, except where the context otherwise requires Chapters 56 to 60 do not apply to goods made up within the meaning of Note 5 above, Chapters 50 to 55 do not apply to goods of Chapters 56 to 59. 7. The woven fabrics of Chapters 50 to 55 include fabrics consisting of layers of parallel textile yarns super-imposed on each other at acute or right angles. These layers are bonded at the intersections of the yarns by an adhesive or by thermal bonding. 8. Elastic products consisting of textile materials combined with rubber threads are classified in this Section. 9. For the purposes of this Section, the expression `impregnated' includes `dipped'. 10. For the purposes of this Section, the expression `polyamides' includes "aramids"; 11. In this Section, the expression `count' wherever it appears, means the size of grey yarn (excluding any sizing material) expressed in English count. For multiple fold yarn, `count' means the count of the basic single yarn. Where the count is in fraction, then, if the fraction is one-half or more it shall be treated as one, and if such fraction is less than one-half, it shall be ignored. 12. For the purpose of determining the average count of yarn in cotton fabrics, the following rules shall apply, namely:-- (a) Yarn used in the borders or selbedges shall be ignored; (b) For multiple-fold yarn, the count of the basic single yarn shall be taken and the number of ends per 25.4 mm. in the reed or the number of picks per 25.4 mm., as the case may be, shall be multiplied by the number of plies in the yarn; where there are basic single yarns of different counts, the count of the basic single yarn which has the highest count shall be taken to be the count of each basic single yarn; (c) In the case of fabrics manufactured from cotton and other yarn, the other yarn shall, for the aforesaid purposes, be deemed to be cotton yarn; 190 (d) Where, there are yarns of different counts in warp or weft or both, the count of the yarn which has the highest count shall be taken to be the count of warp or weft, as the case may be; (e) The average count of such yarn (other than in the case of round mesh mosquito netting) shall be obtained by applying the following formula, namely:-- [(Count of warpXNo. of ends per 25.4 mm. in the reed) (Count of weftXNo. of picks per 25.4 mm.)]/[(No. of ends per 25.4 mm. in the reed No. of picks per 25.4 mm.)] the result being rounded off, wherever necessary, by treating any fraction which is one half or more as one, and disregarding any fraction which is less than one half; and (f) In the case of round mesh mosquito netting, the average count of yarn shall be obtained by applying the following formula, namely:--

[(Count of warpXNo. of ends per 25.4 mm.)] [(Count of

weftXNo. of picks per 25.4 mm.X1.4)]/[(No. of ends per 25.4 mm.)] [(No. of picks 25.4 mm.X1.4)], the result being rounded off, wherever necessary, by treating any fraction which is one half or more as one, and disregarding any fraction which is less than one half. 13. (A) "Waste yarn (hard waste)" in case of yarn of heading Nos. 50.02, 52.01, 53.01, 53.03 and sub-heading No. 5503.39 shall mean-- (i) Short lengths of such yarn in tangled mass not capable of being disentangled without considerable labour; or (ii) Short lengths not exceeding three metres of such yarn even if they are not in the form of an entangled mass. (B) "Waste yarn (hard waste)" in the case of yarns of heading No. 51.04 of sub-heading No. 5503.31 shall mean-- (i) Irregular in shape; (ii) Loosely spun; (iii) Established by visual examination and handing that the yarn is incapable of being directly used for weaving into fabrics; and (iv) Packed in gunny bags. (C) "Waste" of sub-heading Nos. 5302.10, 5607.11 shall mean-- (i) a tangled mass of short lengths not capable of being disentangled without considerable labour; or (ii) Short lengths not exceeding 1.8 metres, even if they are not in the form of a tangled mass and not capable of being used in the manufacture of rope or cord. 14. (A) Products of Chapters 56 to 63 containing two or more textile materials are to be regarded as consisting wholly of that textile material which would be selected under Note 2 above for the classification of a product of Chapters 50 to 55 consisting of the same textile materials. 191 (B) For the application of this rule:-- (i) in the case of textile products consisting of a base fabric and a pile or looped surface, no account shall be taken of the base fabric; (ii) in the case of embroidery, only the base fabric shall be taken into account.

Heading Nos. 54.02 and 54.04 do not apply to synthetic or artificial filament tow of Chapter 55. 2. For the purposes of heading Nos. 54.03 and 54.05, the denier of textured yarn shall be determined in the manner specified below, namely:-- (i) 90 metres of yarn shall be measured off using a wrap reel ensuring just sufficient tension during reeling to remove the crimp but not to stretch the yarn. (ii) The said 90 metres of yarn shall then be weighed on a precision balance and the weight in grams noted. (iii) The denier of such yarn shall thereafter be calculated by multiplying the weight noted under clause (ii) by 100. 205 (iv) In the case of plied textured yarn, the denier so calculated under clause (iii) shall be divided by the number of plies contained in such yarn so as to arrive at the denier of single ply yarn. 3. In relation to products of heading Nos. 54.09, 54.10, 54.11 and 54.12, bleaching, dyeing, printing, shrink-proofing, tentering, heat-setting, crease-resistant processing or any other process or any one or more of these processes shall amount to 'manufacture'. 4.

Subject to Note 1 to this Section, Note 1 to Chapter 84 and to Note 1 to Chapter 85, parts of machines (not being parts of the articles of heading No. 84.84, 85.44, 85.45, 85.46 or 85.47) are to be classified according to the following rules:-- (a) Parts which are goods included in any of the headings of Chapter 84 or Chapter 85 (other than heading Nos. 84.85 and 85.48) are in all cases to be classified in their respective headings. (b) Other parts, if suitable for use solely or principally with a particular kind of machine, or with a number of machines of the same heading (including a machine of heading No. 84.79 or heading No. 85.43) are to be classified with the machines of that kind. However, parts which are equally suitable for use principally with the goods of heading Nos. 85.17 and 85.25 to 85.28 are to be classified in heading No. 85.17. (c) All other parts are to be classified in heading No. 84.85 or heading No. 85.48. 3. Unless the context otherwise requires, composite machines consisting of two or more machines fitted together to form a whole and other machines adapted for the purpose of performing to or more complementary or alternative functions are to be classified as if consisting only of that component or as being that machine which performs the principal function. 4. Where a machine (including a combination of machines) consists of individual components (whether separate or interconnected by piping, by transmission devices, by electric cables or by other devices) intended to contribute together to a clearly defined function covered by one of the headings in Chapter 84 or Chapter 85, then the whole falls to be classified in the heading appropriate to that function. 5. For the purposes of these Notes, the expression `machine' means any machine, machinery, plant, equipment, apparatus or appliance cited in the headings of Chapter 84 or Chapter 85. CHAPTER 84 NUCLEAR REACTORS, BOILERS, MACHINERY AND MECHANICAL APPLIANCES; PARTS THEREOF NOTES 1. This Chapter does not cover: (a) Millstones, grindstones or other articles of Chapter 68; (b) Appliances or machinery (for example, pumps) or parts thereof, of ceramic material (Chapter 69); (c) Laboratory glassware (heading No. 70.12); machinery, appliances or other articles for technical uses or parts thereof, of glass (heading No. 70.14 or 70.15); 273 (d) Articles of sub-heading No. 7308.70 or similar articles of other base metals (Chapters 74 to 76 or 78 to 81); (e) Electro-mechanical tools for working in the hand, of heading No. 85.08 or electro-mechanical domestic appliances of heading No. 85.09; or (f) Hand-operated mechanical floor sweepers, not motorised (heading No. 96.03). 2. Subject to the operation of Note 3 to Section XVI, a machine or appliance which answers to a description in one or more of the heading Nos. 84.01 to 84.24 and at the same time to a description in one or other of the heading Nos. 84.25 to 84.80 is to be classified under the appropriate heading of the former group and not the latter. Heading No. 84.19 does not, however, cover: (a) Germination plant, incubators or brooders (heading No. 84.36); (b) Grain dampening machines (heading No. 84.37); (c) Diffusing apparatus for sugar juice extraction (heading No. 84.38); (d) Machinery for the heat-treatment of textile yarns, fabrics or made up textile articles (heading No. 84.51); or (e) Machinery or plant, designed for mechanical operation, in which a change of temperature, even if necessary, is subsidiary. Heading No. 84.22 does not cover: (a) Sewing machines for closing bags or similar containers (heading No. 84.52); or (b) Office machinery of heading No. 84.72. 3. A machine-tool for working any material which answers to a description in heading No. 84.56 and at the same time to a description in heading No. 84.57, 84.58, 84.59, 84.60, 84.61, 84.64 or 84.65 is to be classified in heading No. 84.56. 4. Heading No. 84.57 applies only to machine-tools for working metal (other than lathes) which can carry out different types of machining operations either:-- (a) by automatic tool change from a magazine or the like in conformity with a machining programme (machining centres), (b) by the automatic use, simultaneously or sequentially, of different unit heads working on a fixed position workpiece (unit construction machines, single station), (c) by the automatic transfer of the workpiece to different unit heads (multi-station transfer machines). 274 5. (a) For the purposes of heading No. 84.71, the expression `automatic data processing machines' means:--

(i) Digital machines, capable of (1) storing the processing programme or programmes and at least the data immediately

necessary for the execution of the programme; (2) being freely

programmed in accordance with the requirements of the user; (3) performing arithmetical computations specified by the user; and

(4) executing, without human intervention, a processing programme which requires them to modify their execution, by logical decision during the processing run; (ii) Analogue machines capable of simulating mathematical models and comprising at least: analogue elements, control elements and programming elements; (iii) 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:-- (i) it is connectable to the central processing unit either directly or through one or more other units; (ii) 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 presented separately are also to be classified in heading No. 84.71. Heading No. 84.71 does not cover machines incorporating or working in conjunction with an automatic data processing machine and performing a specific function. Such machines are classified in the headings appropriate to their respective functions or, failing that, in residual headings. 6. Heading No. 84.82 applies, inter alia, to polished steel balls, the maximum and minimum diameters of which do not differ from the nominal diameter by more than 1 or by more than 0.05 mm whichever is less. Other steel balls are to be classified in heading No. 73.08. 7. 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 the principal purpose of which 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. 84.79. Heading No. 84.79 also covers 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. 275 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Heading Sub- Description of goods Rate of duty No. heading No. ---------------------------------------------------------------------

SOUND RECORDERS AND REPRODUCERS, TELEVI- SION IMAGE AND SOUND RECORDERS AND REPRODUCERS, AND PARTS AND ACCESSORIES OF SUCH ARTICLES NOTES

(1) This Chapter does not cover: (a) Electrically warmed blankets, bed pads, foot-muffs or the like; electrically warmed clothing, footwear or ear pads or other electrically warmed articles worn on or about the person; (b) Articles of glass of heading No. 70.08; or (c) Electrically heated furniture of Chapter 94. 2. Heading Nos. 85.01 to 85.04 do not apply to goods described in heading No. 85.11, 85.12, 85.40, 85.41 or 85.42. However, metal tank mercury arc rectifiers remain classified in heading No. 85.04. 3. Heading No. 85.09 covers only the following electro-mechanical machines of the kind commonly used for domestic purposes: (a) Vacuum cleaners, floor polishers, food grinders and mixers, and fruit or vegetable juice extractors, of any weight; 288 (b) Other machines provided the weight of such machines does not exceed 20 kg. The heading does not, however, apply to fans and ventilating or recycling hoods incorporating a fan, whether or not fitted with filters (heading No. 84.14), centrifugal clothes-dryers (heading No. 84.21), dish washing machines (heading No. 84.22), household washing machines (heading No. 84.50), roller or other ironing machines (heading No. 84.20 or 84.51), sewing machines (heading No. 84.52), electric scissors (heading No. 85.08) or to electro-thermic appliances (heading No. 85.16). 4. For the purposes of heading No. 85.34 `printed circuits' are 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. 85.42. 5. For the purposes of heading Nos. 85.41 and 85.42: (a) "Diodes, transistors and similar semi-conductor devices" are semi-conductor devices the operation of which depends on variations in resistivity on the application of an electric field; (b) "Electronic integrated circuits and microassemblies" are: (i) Monolithic integrated circuits in which the circuit elements (diodes, transistors, resistors, capacitors, interconnections, etc.) are created in the mass (essentially) and on the surface of a semi-conductor material (doped silicon, for example) and are inseparably associated; (ii) Hybrid integrated circuits in which passive elements (resistors, capacitors, interconnections, etc.), obtained by thin-or thick-film technology, and active elements (diodes, transistors, monolithic integrated circuits, etc., obtained by semi-conductor technology, are combined to all intents and purposes indivisibly, on a single insulating substrate (glass, ceramic, etc.). These circuits may also include discrete components; (iii) Microassemblies of the moulded module, micromodule or similar types, consisting of discrete, active or both active and passive components which are combined and interconnected. For the classification of the articles defined in this Note, heading Nos. 85.41 and 85.42 shall take precedence over any other head- 289 ing in the Schedule which might cover them by reference to, in particular, their function. 6. Records, tapes and other media of heading No. 85.23 or 85.24 remain classified in those headings, whether or not they are cleared with the apparatus for which they are intended. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Heading Sub- Description of goods Rate of duty No. heading No. ----------------------------------------------------------------------

notification approved or modified under sub-section (2), may be rescinded by the Central Government at any time by notification in the Official Gazette.

Consequential amendments of, and construction of references, to, the First Schedule to Act 1 of 1944. 4.Consequential amendments of, and construction of references,

to, the First Schedule to Act 1 of 1944. (1) In the Central Excises and Salt Act, 1944,- (a) -for the words "First Schedule", wherever they occur, the words and figures "Schedule to the Central Excise Tariff Act, 1985" shall be substituted; (b) in section 2, for clause (f) the following clause shall be substituted, namely: - `(f)"manufacture" includes any process,- (i) incidental or ancillary to the completion of a manufactured product; (ii) which is specified in relation to any goods in the Section or Chapter notes of the Schedule to the Central Excise Tariff Act, 1985 as amounting to manufacture, and the word "manufacturer" shall be construed accordingly and shall include not only a person who employs hired labour in the production or manufacture of excisable goods, but also any person who engages in their production or manufacture on his own account;'; (c) the First Schedule shall be omitted.

(2) Any reference to the expression "First Schedule to the Central Excises and Salt Act, 1944" (1 of 1944) in any Central Act shall, on and after the commencement of this Act, be construed as a reference to the Schedule to this Act. 3 SCHE (See section 2) THE SCHEDULE-EXCISE TARIFF (See section 2) Rules for the interpretation of this Schedule 1. The titles of Sections and Chapters are provided for ease of reference only; for legal purposes, classification shall be determined according to the terms of the headings and any relative Section or Chapter Notes and, provided such headings or Notes do not otherwise require, according to the provisions hereinafter contained. 2. (a) Any reference in a heading to goods shall be taken to include 1[a reference to those goods] incomplete or unfinished provided that, the incomplete or unfinished goods have the essential character of the complete or finished goods. It shall also be taken to include 1[a reference to those goods] incomplete or finished (or falling to be classified as complete or finished by virtue of this rule), removed unassembled or disassembled. (b) Any reference in a heading to a material or substance shall be taken to include a reference to mixtures or combinations of that material or substance with other materials or substances. Any reference to goods of a given material or substance shall be taken to include a reference to goods consisting wholly or partly of such material or substance. The classification of goods consisting of more than one material or substance shall be according to the principles contained in rule 3. 3. When by application of sub-rule (b) of rule 2 or for any other reason, goods are, prima facie, classifiable under two or more headings, classification shall be effected as follows: (a) The heading which provides the most specific description shall be preferred to headings providing a more general description. However, when two or more headings each refer to part only of the materials or substances contained in mixed or composite goods or to part only of the items in a set, those headings are to be regarded as equally specific in relation to those goods, even if one of them gives a more complete or precise description of the goods. (b) Mixtures, composite goods consisting of different materials or made up of different components, and goods put up in sets, which cannot be classified by reference to (a), shall be classified as if they consisted of the material or component which gives them their essential character, insofar as this criterion is applicable. (c) When goods cannot be classified by reference to (a) or (b), they shall be classified under the heading which occurs last in the numerical order among those which equally merit consideration. 4. Goods which cannot be classified in accordance with the above rules shall be classified under the heading appropriate to the goods to which they are most akin. 5. For legal purposes, the classification of goods in the sub- headings of a heading shall be determined according to the terms of those sub-headings and any related [Sub-heading Note]2 and, mutatis mutandis, to the above rules. on the understanding that only sub- headings at the same level are comparable. For the purposes of this rule, the relative 2[Chapter Section Notes] also apply, unless the context otherwise requires. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 Subs. by Act 23 of 1986, s. 52 & Sch.

Throughout this Schedule, the expression plastics means those materials of heading Nos. 39.01 to 39.14 which are or have been capable, either at the moment of polymerisation or at some Subsequent stage, of being formed under external influence (usually heat and pressure, if necessary with a solvent or plasticiser) by moulding, casting, extruding, rolling or other process into shapes which are retained on the removal of the external influence. Throughout this Schedule, any reference to 'plastics' also in- cludes vulcanised fibre. The expression, however, does not apply to materials regarded as textile materials of Section XI. 2. This Chapter does not cover:- (a) (1 *** ); Waxes (Chapter 27 or Chapter 34); (b) Separate chemically defined organic compounds (Chapter 29); (c) Heparin or its salts (Chapter 30); (d) Stamping foils (Chapter 32); (e) Organic surface active agents or preparations (Chapter 34); (f) Run gums or ester gums (Chapter 38); (g) Synthetic rubber, as defined for the purposes of Chapter 40, or articles thereof; (h) Saddlery or harness or trunks, suitcases, handbags or other containers (Chapter 42); (i) Plaits, wickerwork or other articles of Chapter 46; (j) Wall coverings of Chapter 48; (k) Articles of Section XI (textiles and textile articles); (l) Articles of Section XII (for example, footwear, headgear, umbrellas, sun umbrellas, walking-sticks and Parts thereof); (m) Imitation jewellery (Chapter 71): (n) Articles of Section XVI (machines and mechanical or electrical appliances); ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 Omitted by Act 65 of 1986, S.2 and Sch.

Heading Nos, 39.01 to 39.11 apply only to goods of a kind produced by chemical synthesis, falling in the following categories:- (a) Liquid, synthetic polyolefins of which less than 60 per cent. by volume distils at 300 Deg. C., after conversion to 1,013 milibars when a reduced-pressure distillation method is used (heading Nos. 39.01 and 39.02); (b) Resins, not highly polymerised, of the coumarone-indene type (heading No. 39.11); (c) Other synthertic polymers with an average of at least 5 monomer units; (d) Silicones (heading No. 39.10); (e) Resols (heading No., 39.09) and other prepolymers. 4. For the purposes of this Chapter, except where the context otherwise requires, copolymers (including co-polycondensates, co- polyaddition products, block copolymers and graft copolymers) and polymer blends are to be classified in the heading covering polymers of that comonomer which predominates by weight over every other single comonomer, comonomers whose polymers fall in the same heading being regarded as constituting a single comonomer. If no single comonomer predominates, copolymers or polymer blends, as the case may be, are to be classified in the heading which occurs last in the numerical order among those which equally merit consideration. The expression "copolymers" covers all polymers in which no single monomer contributes 95 per cent. or more by weight to the total polymer content. 5. Chemically modified polymers, that is those in which only appendages to the main polymer chain have been changed by chemical reaction, are to be classified in the heading appropriate to the unmodified polymer. This provision does not apply to graft copolymers. 71 3[6. (a) In head-mg Nos. 39.01 to 39.14, the expression "primary forms" applies only to the following forms:- (i) Liquids and pastes, including dispersions (emulsions and suspensions) and solutions; (ii) Blocks of irregular shape, lumps, powders (including moulding powders), granules, flakes and similar bulk forms. (b) Notwithstanding anything contained in NOTE 3 to this Chapter, heading Nos. 39.01 to 39.14 shall also include primary forms obtained from conversion of another primary form, falling under the same heading, and such conversion shall amount to "manufacture"]. 7. Heading No. 39.15 does not apply to waste, parings and scrap of a single thermoplastic material, transformed into primary forms (heading Nos. 39.01 to 39.14). 8. For the purposes of heading No. 39.17, the expression 'tubes, pipes and hoses' means hollow products, whether semi-manufactures or finished products, of a kind generally used for conveying, conducting or distributing gases or liquids (for example, ribbed garden hose, perforated tubes). 'This expression also includes sausage casings and other lay-flat tubing. However, except for the last-mentioned, those having an internal cross-section, other than round, oval, rectangular '(in which the length does not exceed 1.5 times the width) or in the shape of a regular polygon are not to be regarded as tubes, pipes and hoses but as profile shapes. 9. For the purposes of heading No. 39.18, the expression 'wall or ceiling coverings of plastics' applies to products in rolls, of a width not less than 45 Cms suitable for wall or ceiling decoration, consisting of plastics fixed permanently on a backing of any material other than paper, the plastic layer (on the face side) being grained, embossed, coloured, 'design-printed or otherwise decorated. 10. In heading Nos. 39.20 and 39.21, the expression "Plates, sheets, film, foil and strip" applies only to plates, sheets, film, foil and strip (other than those of Chapter 54) and to blocks of, regular geometric shape, whether or not printed or otherwise surface- worked, uncut or cut into rectangles (incuding squares) but not further worked 4[when so cut] (even if they become articles ready for use). 11. 2[Heading No. 39.25 applies only to the following articles, not being products covered by any of the earlier headings of Sub- Chapter II;] 5[(a) Reservoirs tanks (including septic tanks), vats and similar containers, of a capacity exceeding 300L;] (b) Structural elements used for example, in floors, walls or partitions, ceilings or roofs; (c) Gutters and fittings therefor; (d) Doors, windows and their frames and thresholds for doors; (e) Balconies, balustrades, fencing, gates and similar barriers; (f) Shutters, blinds (including venetian blinds) and similar articles and parts and fittings thereof; (g) Large-scale shelving for assembly and permanent instal- lation, for example, in shops, workshops, warehouses; (2 xxx) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 2 Subs. and Omitted by Act 65 of 1986, S.2 and Sch.II (w.e.f. 10- 2-1987). 3 Subs. by Act 26 of 1988, S.81 & Sch.

(2 xxx) 12. In heading Nos. 39.20 and 39.21, the expression 'flexible' means an article which has a modulus of elasticity either in flexture or in tension of not over 700 kilograms per square centimetre at 23 Deg. C. and 50 per cent. relative humidity when tested in accordance with the method of test for stiffness of plastics (ASTM Designation D- 747-63), for flexural properties of plastics (ASTM Designation D-790- 63), for tensile properties of plastics (ASTM Designation D-638-64T), or for tensile properties of thin plastic sheeting (ASTM Designation D-882-64T) and 'rigid' means all articles other than 'flexible' as defined above. 3[13. Notwithstanding anything contained in NOTE 12 to this Chapter, in heading Nos. 39.09, 39.21, 39.23, 39.24, 39.25 and 39.26, "rigid polyurethane foam" means cellular polyurethane with compressive strength of 0.418 to 28.14 Kg./CM2 and flexural strength of 1.05 to 28.14 Kg./Cm2 when tested in accordance with American Standard (Designation ASTM-D-2341). 14. Within any one heading of this Chapter, copolymers (including co-polycondensates, co-polyaddition products, block copolymers and graft copolymers) are to be classified in the same sub- heading as homopolymers of the predominant comonomer, and chemically modified polymers of the kind specified in Note 5 above are to be classified in the same sub-heading as the unmodified polymer, provided that such copolymers or chemically modified polymers are not more specifically covered by any other sub-heading and that there is no residual sub-heading named "Other" in the series of sub-headings concerned. Polymer blends are to be classified in the same sub- heading as copolymers (or homopolymers, as the case may be) of the same monomers in the same proportions. 3[15. For the purposes of heading Nos. 39-19, 39.20 and thickness not 39.21, the expression "film" means sheetings Of exceeding 0.25 millimetres.] ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Heading Sub- Description of goods Rate of duty No. heading No. ---------------------------------------------------------------------

Products with a rectangular (including square), triangular or polygonal cross-section may have corners rounded along their whole length. The thickness of such products which have a rectangular (including "modified rectangular") cross-section exceeds one-tenth of the width. In the case of heading No. 74.14, however, the term "'wire" applies only to products, whether or not in coils, of any cross-sectional shape, of which no cross-sectional dimension exceeds 6 mm. (g) PLATES, SHEETS, STRIP AND FOIL: Flat-surfaced products (other than the unwrought products of heading No. 74.03), coiled or not, of solid rectangular (other than square) cross-section with or without rounded corners (including "modified rectangles" of which two opposite sides are the other two sides being straight of equal length and parallel) of a uniform thickness, which are: -of rectangular (including square) shape with a thickness not exceeding one-tenth of the width. -of a shape other than rectangular or square, 5[of any size] provided that do not assume the, character of articles or products of other headings. Heading Nos. 74.09 and 74.10 apply, inter alia, to plats, sheets, strips and foil with patterns (for example, grooves, ribs, chequers, tears, buttons, lozenges) and to such products which have been perforated, corrugated, polished or coated, provided that they do not thereby assume the character of articles or products of other headings. (h) TUBES AND PIPES: Hollow products, coiled or not,which have a uniform cross- section with only one enclosed void along their whole length in the shape of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons, and which have a uniform wall thickness. Products with a rectangular (including square), equilateral triangular or regular convex polygonal cross-section, which may have corners rounded along their whole length, are also to be taken to be tubes and pipes provided the inner and outer cross-sections are concentric and have the same form and orientation. Tubes and pipes of the foregoing cross-sections may be polished, coated, bent, threaded, drilled, waisted, expanded, coneshaped or fitted with flanges, collars or rings. SUB-HEADING NOTE In this Chapter the following expressions have the means hereby assigned to them: (a) Copper-zinc base ,alloys (brasses): Alloys of copper and zinc, with or without other elements. When other elements are present: -zinc predominates by weight over each of such other elements; -any nickel content by weight is less than, 5 [see copper-nickel-zinc alloys (nickel silvers)]; and -any tin content by weight is less than 3 [see copper- tin (bronzes)]. (b) Copper-tin base alloys (bronzes): Alloys of copper and tin, with or without other elements. When other elements are present tin predominates by weight over each of such other elements, except that when the tin content is 3 or more the zinc content by weight may exceed that of tin but must be less than 10 . (c) Copper-nickel-zinc based alloys (nickel silvers): Alloys of copper, nickel and zinc, with or without other elements. The nickel content is 5 or more by weight [see copper-zinc alloys (brasses) (d) Copper-nickel base alloys: Alloys of copper and nickel, with or without other elements but in any case containing by weight not more than 1 of zinc.

For the purposes of heading No. 85.34 printed circuits' are 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. 85.42. 5. For the purposes of heading Nos. 85.41 and 85.42: (a) "Diodes, transistors and similar semi-conductor devices" are semi-conductor devices the operation of which depends on variations in resistivity on the application of an electric field; (b) "Electronic integrated circuits and microassemblies" are: (i) Monolithic integrated circuits in which the circuit elements (diodes, transistors, resistors-, capacitors, interconnections etc.) are created in the mass (essentially) and on the surface of a semi-conductor material (doped silicon, for example) and are inseparably associated; (R) Hybrid integrated circuits in which passive elements (resistors, capacitors, interconnections, etc.), obtained by thin-or thick-film technology, and active elements (diodes, transistors,. monolithic integrated circuits, etc., obtained by semi-conductor technology, are combined to all intents and purposes indivisibly, on a single insulating substrate (glass, ceramic, etc.). These circuits may also include discrete components; (iii) Microassemblies of the moulded module, micromodule or similar types, consisting of discrete, active or both active 1[and passive,] components which are combined and interconnected.
