Under the SFIS, exporters of services were given duty credit equivalent to 10 per cent of foreign exchange earned during the current financial year.

Apex body of exporters FIEO said “it is certainly a big setback for the services exporters, especially at a time when they were grappling with fragile global recovery”.
