The appellant, an assessee under the KVAT Act, classified the product, “Appy Fizz” as fruit juice based drink under Entry 71 of the notification issued under Section 6(1)(d) of Act, 2003 paid @ 12.5% VAT. In the year 2007, the Department initiated assessment proceedings against one of the distributors of the assessee finding that the product, “Appy Fizz”, being an “aerated branded soft drink” is taxable @ 20%. The OT Revision filed against the order was dismissed by the High Court. The Special Leave Petition filed against the order was later permitted to be withdrawn.
