Circular No. 87/2000-Cus
2nd November, 2000.
Sub:- Administrative Control over Export Oriented Units (EOUs)/Export Processing Zones- Instructions Reg.
I am directed to invite your attention to the Board’s Circular No. 72/2000-Cus, dated 31-8-2000 on the above-mentioned subject. It has been brought to the notice of the Board by some of the Commissionerates that the above said Circular is silent about the EHTP (Electronic Hardware Technology Park)/ STP (Software Technology Park) units.
2. The matter has been considered by the Board. It is noted that EHTP/STP schemes are nothing but sector specific EOU schemes. Therefore, the instructions issued vide Circular No. 72/2000-Cus, dated 31-8-2000 shall apply mutatis mutandis to STP/EHTP units treating such units as EOU units only.
3. The Board’s Circular No. 72/2000-Cus, dated 31-8-2000 stands modified to the above extent.
4. Difficulties, if any, faced in the implementation of the instructions, may be brought to notice of the Board at an early date.
Sr. Technical Officer (FTT)
