My dear fellow exporters,

As a step towards more efficient Input Tax Neutralization on the exports, after considering various representations from the trade and industry, the Government of India has enhanced the All Industry Rates of duty drawback for 102 tariff items. 

The Export Items mainly include Marine and Seafood Products, Automobile Tyres and Bicycle Tyres/Tubes, Leather and Articles of Leather, Yarn and Fabric of Wool, Glass Handicrafts and Bicycles, Etc. Among the 102 tariff lines, the engineering tariff lines under Ch 87 include 871201, 871202, 871203 and 871204.

The Revised Rates of Duty Drawback will help address the concerns of these export sectors and make India’s exports more competitive in global economy.
