M/s Samalkot Power Limited &

The expression "all goods" used in the two Chapter Notes is significant and so is the expression "all items" used in the text of Heading 9801. The phrase "all items of machinery including ....required for the initial setting up a unit, or the substantial expansion of an existing unit, of a specified.... power project" means, to our mind, that the whole lot of items required for the setting up of a power plant or for the substantial expansion of an existing power plant will constitute a bundle or cluster to be covered by Heading 9801. The Chapter Notes appear to support this legal fiction embodied in Heading 9801. If some of the items/goods are removed from this bundle, the residue will not go to constitute a new power plant or an expanded power plant. Therefore, it is imperative that, for classification under Heading 9801, the bundle of items/goods must be complete so as to be considered to be "required for the setting up of a power plant.

Once the Department depending upon the definition and specifications comes to the conclusion that the product is bituminous coal and it fulfils the definition given therein and in view of the settled law that when there is a specific definition available in the tariff, trade parlance is not relevant.
