NOTES

Note 1: Method of Adjustment of Export Performance under Para 3.7.4

If the applicant is part of a Group Company as defined in Chapter 9 of Foreign Trade Policy, Entitlement will be adjusted in terms of Para 3.7.4 of Foreign Trade Policy. If any of the Star Group Companies show negative growth, necessary adjustment would be made by RLA to retain the last years’ export performance of each individual star export house, out of the export performance of the applicant company of the group. The balance after adjustment would be counted for the export performance of the applicant company for grant of Target Plus Scheme benefits. Illustrative example is given in the following table to clarify the above.

Where Company B is the applicant company and there are only two star export houses in the group.

Illustration (Company B is eligible on difference between Adjusted Export Performance for 2005-06 and FOB Value of eligible exports for 2004-05)

Companies in the Group FOB Value of eligible exports

2004-05

FOB Value of eligible exports

2005-06

Adjustment Export Performance after Adjustment for 2005-06
A 50 10 40 50
B 60 122 -40 82
Total (A + B) 110 132 132
Groups Growth Positive

Similarly, if export performance after adjustment falls below 72 (i.e. below 20% required minimum incremental growth rate) then the applicant company is not eligible or if the combined performance of all Star Export House companies of the Group falls below 110 then all Star export houses of this group are not eligible.

Note 2: The FOB Value of Export (in free foreign exchange) in US$ and in Indian Rupees for this application has to be taken from Shipping Bill. For export bills in currencies other than US$, the conversion into US$ may be taken by cross conversion on basis of the conversion rate of US $ to Rupee and the conversion rate of other currency (say Euro) to Rupee as notified by the Customs on the date of let exports order of the shipment.

Note 3: Deleted.

Note 4: Calculating the eligibility

i) The Value of Eligible Export in 2004-05 (previous year) should be greater than or equal to Rs 10 Crores as in Column A of Row 04 of Sr. No. 6.

ii) Minimum Percentage Incremental growth in exports as in Row 03A of Sr. No. 6 should be greater than or equal to 20%.

Note 5: The entitlement shall be calculated on the minimum percentage incremental growth in FOB value of exports of 20% in the current licensing year (2005-06) over the previous licensing year (2004-05), and the rate of entitlement shall be 5%.

Note 6: Incremental growth beyond 100% will not qualify for computation of duty credit entitlement

Note 7: The export product groups shall be the product groups listed in Row 12 of Sr. No. 6. Miscellaneous would cover the residual product group category.

Note 8: Applicant can claim the balance entitlement due as per Row 11 of Sr. No 6 of this application by filing a single consolidated supplementary application within 3 months of receipt of last realization as per RBI guidelines. No Supplementary cut will be imposed in such a case.

Note 9: In case exports made under Sr. No. IV of the declaration appended hereto are covered by more than a single category, the applicant may choose to declare such exports in any one of the said categories as reflected in the Sr. No (vii) of the CA certificate.

Note 10: If an applicant is not satisfied with the calculation of entitlement under the scheme, he may approach the Grievance Redressal Committee at the Ministry of Commerce & Industry. The details are available at http://commerce.nic.in/grc.htm.
