Subject: Clarification regarding issue of Export House Status Certificate by Regional Offices of DGFT.
Attention is invited to Para 3.2.1 of Handbook of Procedures which provides that application shall be filed with jurisdictional Regional Authority/Development Commissioner. However in cases where export performance of EOUs/SEZs is clubbed together with company or firm/Group Company in DTA, the same will be considered by jurisdictional Regional Authority only.
2. The issue has been examined in detail and it is decided that the jurisdictional Regional Offices of DGFT would examine, consider and issue Export House Status Certificate for STPI units, as jurisdictional Development Commissioner issues the same for SEZ and EOU units alone.
This issues with the approval of DGFT.
