Talapatra,J held that as Soya Deoil Cake was not poultry feed but could be used as an ingredient of poultry feed, hence, the same was not taxable. Considering that Soya Deoil cake was both an ingredient for poultry feed as well as an ingredient for manufacturing goods for human consumption, the Court stated that the assessee must file an undertaking to use the product only for manufacture of animal feed.
