  • Sir, the article is very useful. Thanks. If my understanding is correct, after 01.07.17, if a person is claiming ‘All Industry Rate’ of Duty Drawback, still he can claim refund of accumulated ITC on account of continuous exports. But I am not getting the relevant circular / authority under which it is allowed. Please help.

  • Saurabh ji,
    Thank you for such a useful article. I request if you have specific format of undertaking issued by EOU`s to a DTA on supplies procured by them and EOU is not claiming refund of IGST amount charged in tax invoice.
    Any further clarification required shall be gladly provided as and when asked for.
    Thank You
