PUBLIC NOTICE No 25 /2002-07

NEW DELHI: the 17th July, 2002

In exercise of powers conferred under paragraph 2.4 of the Export and Import Policy, 2002-07, the Director General of Foreign Trade hereby makes the following amendment in the Handbook of Procedures (Vol.1):

1) The following sentence is added at the end of para 3.12.1:

“ However no RCMC would be insisted upon under any of the schemes under the Exim Policy if the product of export is shoddy and woollen yarn, wool fabrics, wool tops, hair belting of wool, felt and machine made carpets and woven shawls made of wool, wool scarves and wool stoles.”

2) Para 4.22 of the Handbook of Procedures (Vol 1) stipulates the fulfilment of the export obligation under Advance Licence within a period of 18 months of the date of issue of the licence excepting in the case of Advance Licence for deemed exports where the EO has to be fulfilled within the contracted duration of execution of the project. However para 4.22.1 of the Handbook of Procedures (Vol 1) permits two EO extensions of six months each on payment of a composition fee of 1% and 5% respectively of the unfulfilled FOB value of exports with reference to the CIF value of imports made at that point of time. Therefore the exports under Advance Licence can be made upto a period of 30 months after payment of the composition fee.

Based on the general principle as ennuniciated in para 4.22 & 4.22.1 of the Handbook of Procedures (Vol 1), it has been decided to grant further extensions of the advance licence beyond the stipulated 30 months on payment of a composition fee of 1% per month proportionate to unfulfilled FOB value of exports vis a vis the CIF value of imports.

Such extensions would not be permitted in the case of the erstwhile Value based Advance Licences (VABAL’s) or where the firm has committed any breach of the Foreign Trade (Development & Regulation Act), 1992 or other allied acts .

In line with this decision , a second sub para is added to para 4.22.1 as under:

However any further extensions beyond 30 months from the date of issue of the Advance Licence or the duration of the contracted project ( in the case of Advance Licence for Deemed Exports) or on lapse of any other extension(s) granted by this office would be permitted on payment of a composition fee of 1% per month of unfulfilled part of the export obligation in proportion to the CIF value of imports actually made at that point of time. However such extensions would not be permitted in the case of the erstwhile Value based Advance Licences (VABALs). Additionally , no extension in export obligation would be allowed in respect of the licences where misrepresentation/ fraud has come to the notice of the licencing authorities. Further, in respect of licences where adjudication orders have already been passed, no extension in export obligation period shall be admissible.

3) Appendix 3 pertaining to the “ Application Form for Allotment of Importer-Exporter Code (IEC) Number and Modification in Particulars of an Existing IEC No Holder” is amended as per Annexure to this Public Notice”

4) S.No 3 of the Documents to be enclosed with the application form in Appendix 10 C pertaining to the “ Application Form for Duty Entitlement Pass Book (DEPB) on Post Export Basis “ and Appendix 10 D pertaining to the “Application From for Grant of Duty Free Replenishment Certificate” is amended as under:

3. Bank Certificate of Exports and Realisation as given in Appendix 22 or Foreign Inward Remittance Certificate (FIRC) in the case of direct negotiation of documents. In case of FIRC, a declaration from the exporter that the remittance is in respect of Shipping Bill(s) No ____________ dtd _________ shall also be furnished .

 This issues in public interest.
