The Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), under the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India, has issued Public Notice No. 08/2024-25 on 3rd June 2024. This notice pertains to an amendment in Appendix 6B of the Foreign Trade Policy (FTP) and the Indian Industrial Base Products (IIBP) concerning the value addition requirements for spices categorized under Chapter 9 of the Indian Trade Classification (ITC) Harmonized System (HS) Code.

The amendment specifically targets Paragraph 10(ii) of Appendix 6B of the FTP/HBP 2023. Previously, the requirement mandated a minimum value addition of 25% for spices falling under Chapter 9 of the ITC(HS) Code. However, with this amendment, the directive is refined. Now, the 25% value addition is only applicable when both the export and import items belong to Chapter 9 of the ITC(HS) Code. For all other cases, the minimum value addition remains at 15%.

This adjustment aims to align the provisions with Chapter 4 of the FTP/HBP, ensuring consistency in regulations concerning value addition for spices covered under Chapter 9 of the ITC(HS) Code.
