Certain times waybill/road permit is required for heavy products transferred from one state to another so, if you don't fall under this, consider yourself lucky!! Dispatch of heavy products take more than the expected time: l. Firstly, the fulfillment of your order may require a certain road permit/declaration/inward form to be filled,which can either be downloaded from the respective state's sales tax website or one has to physically go to the nearest sales tax office to procure the above. 2. Also, at times entry taxes as per the Commercial Tax Government rules are levied by the respective state where the goods are shipped (However, it might vary from product to product.) 3. The customer is liable to fill road permit/declaration/inward form and/or pay the entry tax to fulfill the order. 4. The failure of filling the form or not paying the entry tax leads to shipment hold, which eventually may lead to order cancellation & refund. 5. Hence, to have a smooth product dispatch process, form filling and payment of entry taxes wherever required plays a major role.

Mace( jaapathri) and nutmeg come from different parts of the fruit from nutmeg trees. The inner seed is made into nutmeg while the lacy covering or aril is made into mace.
Mace is warm with a lemon-like sweetness however isn’t as sweet as nutmeg.
Mace has nutmeg’s aromatic, sweet, warm aroma though is slightly stronger with hints of cloves and pepper.
Mace is sold as whole dried blades or ground and as opposed to nutmeg, which is most commonly used in sweet dishes, mace is used mainly in savoury dishes. Mace works wonderfully in milk-based sauces such as béchamel and onion sauce and is used to make pickles and chutneys. Mace loves shellfish, cream cheese, cabbage, chicken, spinach, sweet potato and veal and combines well with cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, ginger, nutmeg, paprika, pepper and thyme.
The nutmeg tree is a large tree which grows to around 18 metres and is native to the Moluccas, Indonesia. The trees take 15-20 years before they bear the apricot sized fruits. The ripe fruit is collected and the outer skin and white flesh are removed. Mace, which is the lacy, bright coloured scarlet aril that covers the seed is removed. The aril is then pressed flat and allowed to dry for a few hours and then stored in the dark for around 4 months during which time it turns a deep orange-yellow colour.
The nutmeg tree was discovered in Indonesia’s Spice Islands by the Portuguese who kept the supply a close secret. The Portuguese were then driven out of the Spice Islands by the Dutch who also guarded the supply closely by restricting the cultivation to only two islands, driving up the price of the commodity. The English then captured the Spice Islands in 1796 and introduced nutmeg trees to Penang, Singapore, Sri Landa, Sumatra and the West Indies. Today Grenada in Indonesia is the largest producer, supplying a third of the world’s supply.
In Southeast Asia and China, mace is used more for its medicinal qualities than in cooking. It has been used by herbalists to aid in the relief of toothaches, muscular pain, nausea and for healing of the nervous and digestive systems.
