K.I. International Ltd.

It is established principle of law that fraud and justice do not dwell together. An assessee acting in defiance of law has no right to claim innocence when he fails to exercise due care and diligence. Failing to cause enquiry with the issuing authority of DEPB scrips/TRAs crippled the importer appellants to claim bona fide. Enactments like Customs Act 1962, and Customs Tariff Act 1975, are not merely taxing statutes but are also potent instruments in the hands of the Government to safeguard interest of the economy. One of its measures is to prevent deceptive practices of undue claim of fiscal incentives. Evidence Act not being applicable to quasi-judicial proceeding, preponderance of probability came to rescue of Revenue and Revenue was not required to prove its case by mathematical precision.

M/s. Duggar Fibre Pvt. Ltd.

There is a difference between the description of the goods declared and the nature thereof visible to the naked eye. Had that been scrap that would have been of irregular size without defined length and breadth. Therefore, mis-declaration of description of the goods is established. Once there is mis-declaration of description, the appellant loses right to raise the plea of over valuation because fraud vitiates every solemn act.
