Message from Commissioner

The Department had collected about Rs. 122 crores of revenue in the 2008-09 and has collected nearly Rs.140 crores in 2009-10 as a result of introducing of new Excise Policy 2009, new optional 4% composition scheme on works contract for dealers, streamlining of TDS procedures to avoid double payment of tax , etc, and also due to dealing successfully with complicated legal issues about taxation facing the department.
