2.    Trade and Ministry  of   Textiles  have brought  to the  notice of  the  Board  that  in  many  field formations ,  the  enhanced  drawback rates  are  being  permitted  from 18.9.2003 and  not  with  effect  from 7.4.2003.  Also, in  many  formations, the  EDI  Directories  have  not  been  updated  thereby  compelling  the  exporters  to file supplementary  drawback  claims.  It has been represented that such a procedure is leading to delays. This matter was again taken up by a number of exporters during the interactive session held on 24.12.2003 with the Hon’ble Minister of Commerce, at New Delhi.

3.  It  is, therefore, requested that the grievances of the exporters on this account may be redressed urgently and necessary instructions issued to the field formations under your charge.
