Springs of Iron and Steel for Railways are classifiable under HSN Code no. 7320 and taxable @18%

Shanti Prime Publication Pvt. Ltd.

Classification of goods— Springs of Iron and Steel—In the instant case, seeks ruling on classification of Springs of Iron and Steel for supply to the Railways.

Held that— Chapter Heading 8607 does not anywhere clearly classify Springs of Iron and Steel. It only refers to parts of railway (such as bogies, bissel-bogies, axels and wheels and parts thereof) in a general way; whereas, Chapter Heading 7320 clearly classifies springs of Iron and Steel for Railways. “Leaf-springs for Railways” are classified under Tariff Item No. 73201012 and “Coil-springs for Railways” are classified under Tariff Item No. 73209010.

In the light of the above discussion, since Springs of Iron and Steel, are specifically classifiable under Chapter Heading 7320, the general description under Chapter Heading 8607 is not applicable. Springs of iron and steel for railways are classifiable under HSN Code no. 7320 and taxable @ 18%.

Ruling— Springs of Iron and Steel for Railways are classifiable under HSN Code no. 7320 (taxable @ 18%) under Serial No. 234 of Schedule III of Notification No. 1/2017- CT (Rate) dated 28.06.2017.[ M/S. AVANTIKA INDUSTRIES] [AUTHORITY FOR ADVANCE RULING, WEST BENGAL][2019] 8 TAXLOK.COM 036 (AAR-WB)
