Circular No. 20/2009-14 Dated 01-01-2010
Subject:- Extension of time for filing of applications for fixation of Brand Rate of Duty Drawback for High Speed Diesel (HSD) supplied by domestic oil companies to EOU’s prior to issue of Notification No. 20 dated 17.8.05.
Reference is invited to this office letter Pt. F. No. Misc-12/AM-05/DBK Cell dated 5th March 2008 addressed to DC, NSEZ on the above subject wherein it was inter-alia clarified that no new applications for fixation of Brand Rate of Duty Drawback for HSD should be entertained and applications already filed and pending in the office of DC, NSEZ as on 5th March 2008 should be disposed off as per the directions given in the aforesaid letter (copy enclosed).
Pursuant to the above, representations have been received from FIEO and individual firms pleading for equality of opportunity and seeking extension of time for filing applications for fixation of Brand Rate of Duty Drawback for HSD on the grounds that the criteria for fixing Brand Rate of Duty Drawback was communicated on 5.3.08 and the same date was also fixed as the cut off date for filing of applications and this date was not announced either by a Circular or Public Notice for information of the exporting community.
The matter has been reconsidered and it has been decided to give one final opportunity, of three months time from the date of issue of this Circular, to enable the trade to file their applications, for fixation of Brand Rate of Duty Drawback for HSD supplied by domestic oil companies to EOU’s prior to 17.8.05. The finalization of such applications shall however be subject to fulfillment of the prescribed conditions and careful scrutiny of all documents submitted in support of the claim so that no fraudulent applications are approved. This may please be brought to the notice of all concerned.
This issues with the approval of Director General of Foreign Trade.
