1). These norms will be applicable only if the export product is manufactured through Electric Arc Furnace route/Induction Furnace route using steel scrap as basic raw material.

2). Sl. 16 & 21 will be allowed only in case of export of rolled billets/blooms/slabs,

3). In case of export of rolled blooms/billets/slabs, produced out of ingots, refractory items under sl. 17 shall not be allowed.

4). Against export of ingots, import items at Sl. 10, 11, 16 & 21 shall not be allowed.

5). When export product has been manufactured through electric induction furnace route, import item No. 9 & 12 will not be allowed.

6). The item non alloy steel melting scrap will be allowed as per the definition given in section XV of Customs Tariff.

7). Individual quantity of Pig/cast iron, and sponge iron/ HBI shall not exceed 20% and 65% respectively of the total quantity of items to be permitted under import item No. 1.
