NEW DELHI : Dated, 1, October, 1999

 Attention is invited to Public Notice No. 62 dated 31st December, 1997, according to which in respect of Advance Licenses issued as per EXIM Policy, 1992-97, where export obligation had been completed on or before 31st December, 1997 but licenses had expired without effecting the imports, a provision was made for endorsement of transferability in accordance with the conditions as laid down therein.

Several representations have been received to the effect that in some cases the documents were submitted for grant of endorsement of transferability under the above stated Public Notice but the endorsement could not be effected because of certain reasons like issuance of Custom Notification No. 32/98 on 4.6.1998, issuance of DGFT Public Notice No. 7 on 13th April, 1998 or delay at the end of the Licensing Authorities in granting transferability within the stipulated time period. In some other cases the documents could not be submitted under the above stated Public Notice because of delay in logging of DEEC Book in spite of having completed the exports before 31st December, 1997, delay in the issuance of reversal certificate of MODVAT by Customs / Central Excise Authorities.

After considering the above stated requests, in exercise of powers conferred under Paragraph 4.11 of the Export and Import Policy, 1997-2002, as notified in the Gazette of India Extra-ordinary, Part – II, Section – 3 – Sub-section (ii) vide S.O. No. 283 (E) dated 31.3.1997, the Director General of Foreign Trade hereby notify the following arrangement :

In respect of Advance Licenses issued as per EXIM Policy, 1992-97, wherever export obligation against such cases has been completed on or before 31st December, 1997 and the licenses were submitted for endorsement of transferability under Public Notice No. 62 dated 31st December, 1997, on or before 20.2.1998, but the endorsement of transferability could not be effected because Custom Notification No. 32/98 could be issued only on 4.6.1998 or DGFT Public Notice No. 7 could be issued only on 13th April, 1998 or delay at the end of the Licensing Authorities in granting transferability within stipulated time period

However, such licenses which are revalidated and transferability effected, shall be valid only up to 31st March, 2000. Exporters are advised to file their requests to the concerned Licensing Authorities latest by 31.10.1999.
