Section 3 in The Customs Tariff Act, 1975
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 and ingredients as, in either case, may be determined by rules made by the Central Government in this behalf.
(4) In making any rules for the purposes of sub- section (3), the Central Government shall have regard to the average quantum of the excise duty payable on the raw materials, components or ingredients used in the production or manufacture of such like article.
(5) The duty chargeable under this section shall be in addition to any other duty imposed under this Act or under any other law for the time being in force.
(6) The provisions of the Customs Act, 1962 , (52 of 1962 ) and the rules and regulations thereunder, including those relating to drawbacks, refunds and exemption duties, shall,’ so far as’ may’ be, apply to the duty chargeable under this section as they apply in relation to the duties leviable under that Act.
