  1. Vaibhav Arora says:

    the application for obtaining Duty Credit Scrip under MEIS shall be filed within a period of 12 months from the Let Export (LEO) date, or three months from the date of uploading of EDI shipping bills onto the DGFT server by Customs, or printing/release of shipping bills for Non-EDI shipping bills, whichever is later, in respect of shipments for which the claim is being filed. Para 9.12 gives a further period of two years from the prescribed date for filing the claim and sanction with a late cut in the entitlement. There is no provision to claim MEIS after the period of two years after the prescribed last date
