Raj HC stays govt notification on mandi cess
Jaipur: The Rajasthan High Court on Thursday
stayed a notification of the state government providing for
exemption of mandi (market) cess on agricultural produces
brought to the state for export after processing.
The interim order was passed on a writ petition filed by
certain industries of Dausa.
The petitioners challenged the notification issued on
April 27, 2005 whereby the government repealed Rule 58(4) of
the Rajasthan Agriculture Produce and Marketing Rules 1963.
The move had provided for an exemption from mandi cess.
The government contended that the industries do not use
the mandi platform and the entire raw material brought from
outside the state for the purpose of processing and exporting
is unloaded in the industries itself.
The government counsel argued that imposition of cess
was against the objective of the Act itself.
The court after hearing the arguments passed the interim
order and issued notices to Secretary Agriculture Board and
Secretary Dausa Mandi Samiti.
