Dear Sir,


As you are aware, the Department of Revenue, Ministry of Finance, annually reviews the All Industry Rates of Duty Drawback. You are also aware, that the Council prepares and sends detailed proposal to the Ministry of Finance for the fixation of the Drawback rates based on inputs received from its members.


The Department of Revenue has sought proposals from the Council for the fixation of new All Industry Rates of Duty Drawback for the year 2013-14 for Manmade fibre textiles products covered under Chapter 54 to 63 of the Drawback Schedule.  


This year the Ministry has invited feedbacks/suggestions from the Members of the Trade regarding the existing anomalies on classification and rates in the present Drawback Schedule. We request our members to send us your views so that the same can be taken up with the Ministry.


You are, therefore, requested to please send us the required details in the prescribed formats (Proforma 1 (A), Proforma II, Proforma III, and Proforma IV), which are enclosed herewith. Also, please substantiate the data provided by you with regard to the export prices, domestic & import prices of inputs used in the export product by furnishing copies of the relevant documents such as Shipping Bills, Bills of Entry and the Central Excise Invoices etc.


In this regard, please note as under:

1)     The data pertaining to export prices and various input(s)/service(s) which are used in the manufacture of export product must pertain to the third quarter of 2012-13 (Oct. to Dec. 2012).

2)     The data should be duly certified by the Chartered Accountant.


Since the Ministry requires the data urgently, we request you to send us the details by E-mail/Courier/Fax on or before 20th March, 2013 positively.


We solicit your support and co-operation in the matter and look forward to receive the required information at the earliest.


Thanking You
