3.         In respect of the aforementioned goods, the common comments of the Commissioner are as follows :-

 

"On the basis of description of goods given in annexure-II and General characteristics given in Technical documents, it appears that the party's contention that in accordance with the Rule 1 of the general Rule of interpretation, these goods are classified under tariff heading 8517 electrical apparatus for line telephony or line telegraphy, including line telephone sets with cordless handsets and telecommunication apparatus for carrier-current line system or for digital line system; videophones is correct.

 

Conclusion : In view of above, proposed classification of item under tariff heading 85175099 may be accepted."

 

4.         It is thus seen that the classification of the said goods by the applicant is accepted by the Commissioner in these applications. 

            The relevant Tariff heading and sub-headings read as follows :
