3. Development Commissioners are vested with the responsibility of administering EOUs. For administrative convenience, it is appropriate that the authorities having functional jurisdiction over the applicant units should process the applications. It is therefore, clarified that DTA units should submit claims only with the concerned RA as per para 8.3.1(iii) of HBP. EOUs can submit deemed export benefit applications only with the Development Commissioner, on production of suitable disclaimer from DTA supplier, along with other documents as provided under para 8.3.1(i) of HBP.
