 I.  CBEC has issued Notification No. 04/2010-Central Excise (N.T.) and Notification No. 01/2010-Service Tax, both dated 19th Feb, 2010, making e-filing of Central Excise Returns (ER-1 and ER-3) and Service Tax Return (ST-3) mandatory for assessees with effect from 1st April, 2010.    
    II.  Notification No 04/2010-CE (N.T.) dated 19.02.2010 makes it mandatory for assessees who have paid total duty of rupees ten lakhs or more including the amount of duty paid by utilization of CENVAT credit in the preceding financial year to file the monthly or quarterly return, electronically under sub-rule (1) of Rule 12 of the Central Excise Rules, 2002 and deposit the duty electronically through internet banking under sub-rule (1) of Rule 8 of the Central Excise Rules, 2002.    
    III.  Similarly, Notification No. 01/2010-ST dated 19.02.2010 makes it mandatory for assessees who have paid total Service Tax of rupees ten lakhs or more including the amount of tax paid by utilization of CENVAT credit in the preceding financial year to file the half-yearly return (ST-3), electronically under sub-rule (2) of Rule 7 of the Service Tax Rules, 1994 and deposit the service Tax liable to be paid, electronically, through internet banking under sub-rule (2) of Rule 6 of the Service Tax Rules, 1994.    
    IV.  The facility of e-filing of returns on the website (http://exciseandservicetax.nic.in), as provided in the CBEC Circular No.791/24/2004-CX. Dated 1.6.2004, has been withdrawn and the assessees are required to file their returns online or by uploading the downloadable off-line return utilities to the new ACES website (http://www.aces.gov.in).    
    V.  Further, to make it easy for the Dealers to file returns in ACES, an XML schema has been hosted on the ACES website. By suitably modifying their own software application and using this schema the assessees (Dealers) can also generate an up-loadable form of return directly from their own database without the need to make fresh data entry.    
    VI.  Details for e-filing of returns are available in the Help Section of this website under Learning Management Software (LMS), User Manual and FAQs and in the Download Section.
