A chartered engineer certificate along with the Project Authority certificate is submitted to the Directorate General of Hydrocarbons for obtaining excise exemption.
Contents of the chartered engineer certificate
The contactor places the purchase order on the vendor. The chartered engineer scrutinizes the purchase order and prepares his certificate. It denotes all the quantities of the purchase order which are liable to get excise benefit. For example, a contractor might have four sites and only two might need the benefit. So segregation is important.
The chartered engineer certificate starts by declaring that that the goods are for the execution of the contract awarded to the contractor. It then provides names and addresses of the contractor and customer. Vendor’s name and address is next shown. After that all the quantities are shown along with their excise duty saved. The chartered engineer signs and stamps on each page.
