M/s Triveni Glass Ltd Vs CCE, Allahabad (Dated: April 29, 2011)

Central Excise - Department has not proved service of order on the appellant - Limitation to appeal starts from the day the appellant got the order : The respondents have failed to establish that they have served the order or decision in the manner required under Section 37-C (1) (a) of the Act, there is service on 25.02.2009. It is no doubt true that in the matter of service of notice, it being merely procedural, a party has to establish the prejudice occasioned on account of non-service in the matter. However, when the matter arises as to the right of a party in the form of extinguishment of remedy of an appeal, then such provision, though procedural, must be strictly construed or in other words, the strict mandate of the language of the Section must be complied with. Furthermore, between taking a view which permits a party to pursue his remedy and which defeats the right to such remedy, the law must lean in favour of the person, who comes to the Court to pursue his remedy, rather than the person seeking to defeat the remedy, on technicalities.: ALLAHABAD HIGH COURT;
