ANNEXURE – I

CALCULATION OF NFEP/NFE

1. While calculating NFEP/EP achieved, following basic components are to be taken into consideration:

i. Amortised value of capital goods and technical know how fee

ii. Value of import of R. M. (which is consumed during the year and consumables, spares, etc.).

iii. Other outflow of foreign exchange towards royalty, interest on external commercial borrowings etc.

iv. Value of physical exports effected excluding DTA sales but including supplies made under para 6.9and 7.8(c) of the policy.

2. Amortised Value of Capital Goods: For this purpose as much value of CG is taken into account as indicated in para 6.5 for NFEP and 7.4 for NFE of the Hand Book of procedure (Vol.I). The CG imported prior to the 5 years period is not taken into consideration for the purposes of NFEP/NFE if the value of said CG is fully amortized. However where investment in plant and machinery is more than RSr. 5.00 crores, the value of imported CG will be apportioned over a period of 8 yearSr. If any capital goods imported duty free is leased from a leasing company or is taken in loan the CIF value of the capital goods shall be included under the imported inputSr. However, on return of such CG its unamortized portion of value would be excluded from the calculation formula.

3. Import of raw material, consumables and spares etc: Whatever R. M. Consumables and spares are imported during the year are taken into account. However, it should be noted that whatever R. M. is in balance at the end of the previous year is added while the RM at the end of the current year is deducted which will give the amount of RM consumed during the year. RM purchased as inter – unit transfer is also included.

4. Other outflow of foreign exchange: All the foreign exchange outflow on account of royalty, dividends, commission on exports, interest on external commercial borrowing etc., during the particular year has to be accounted for while calculating value addition.However outflow on account of know-how fee would be apportioned during a period of five years/eight years as applicable

5. Value of exports: While calculating value of exports, DTA sale made during the year are not to be accounted for. However, supplies made in accordance with the para 6.9 and 7.8(c) of the Policy will be taken into consideration for calculation of NFEP/NFE.

App-145

6. Given below are details of a unit so as to calculate the NFEP for the year 1999 – 2000, on the presumption that no imported RM was in balance at the end of previous year as well as at the end of 1999-2000. In this case, the NFEP for 1999-2000 is calculated as below: –

1. Amortised value of CG. (20% of import of CG made during the years 1995-96 to 1999-2000) (i.e., 20% of RSr. 50.00 lakhs) RSr. 10.00 lakhs
2. Import of R. M. etc RSr. 100.93 lakhs
3. Other outflow of F. E. RSr. 10.72 lakhs
4. Value of exports RSr. 173.13 lakhs

The NFEP comes to = 173.13 – (10 + 100.93 + 10.72)x 100

173.13

= 29.73%
