Sub. : Relaxation inDeclaration of intent under MEIS Scheme – Yes/ No.
With the introduction of MEIS Scheme in Foreign Trade Policy (2015-2020) read with reference to para 3.14 of Handbook of Procedures of FTP 2015-20, Members were facing problem that many Custom House Agents of exporters have inadvertently ticked “N” in the reward item box while filing the shipping bills with Customs. Even though in many cases the item of export is eligible for MEIS, as “N” has been ticked, such shipping bills have not been transmitted to the DGFT system and exporters are therefore unable to obtain / find these shipping bills on the system for submitting claims under MEIS.
With the vigorous efforts of this Council, Ministry of Commerce issued Public Notice 40 /2015-2020 Dated the 9th October , 2015 (copy enclosed in English and Hindi) which allows the exporters to claim MEIS benefits on exports made between 1.4.2015 to 31.5.2015, and where the exporter has inadvertently marked “N” in the “reward item box” and wishes to seek MEIS benefits.
Members may kindly make note of the above and take the benefit of the MEIS Scheme as explained in Public Notice No. 40.
