chairman

My dear fellow exporters,

India’s Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has constituted a Goods and Services Tax (GST) Facilitation Cell at its headquarters to assist and advice exporters and industry on smooth transition from present regime to GST system, effective July 1, 2017.

Similarly all regional offices of DGFT have constituted GST Facilitation Cell which would be headed by Head of Regional Office i.e. Add. DGFT/Joint DGFT with other two officers of the rank of Deputy DGFT or Asst. DGFT.

The government has announced to align the mid-term review of foreign trade policy with roll out of GST for the convenience of exporters and industry. The core focus of the revised FTP would be promoting exports from the SMEs and high employment potential sectors.

On behalf of EEPC India, we feel that these initiatives of the government would definitely help the exporting community and ensure smooth implementation of the landmark tax reform from 1st July, 2017.
