The following is the text of the opening remarks by Shri P.V. Bhide, Secretary, Revenue, Ministry of Finance at a Press Conference, in Delhi on 12.7.2007.

"The Ministry of Finance has since worked out the revised All Industry Rates of Duty Drawback for 2007-08 which shall be notified in the Official Gazette shortly. Taking into account the duty incidence on inputs the drawback rates have been increased in most cases. The increased rates of drawback would take effect from 1.4.2007.

The Ministry of Finance had constituted a Committee to determine the drawback rates, consisting of Shri Saumitra Chaudhuri, Member, Economic Advisory Council to Prime Minister as Chairman, Shri S.B. Mohapatra, former Secretary, Ministry of Textiles and Shri T.R. Rustagi, former Chief Commissioner of Customs & Central Excise as Members. The Committee held extensive consultations with the various industry and trade associations and other stake holders in various locations and submitted its Report on 6.7.2007. The Government has accepted the drawback rates as suggested by the Committee.

Like the previous year, the drawback rates have been determined on the basis of certain broad parameters including, inter alia, the prevailing prices of inputs, standard input/output norms (SION) published by DGFT, share of imports in the total consumption of inputs and the applied rates of duty. As education cess is being collected as duties of excise/customs, the element of education cess has been factored in the drawback rates. The incidence of duty on HSD/Furnace Oil has also been factored in the drawback calculation. Further, the incidence of service tax paid on taxable services which are used as input services in the manufacturing or processing of export goods has been factored.

The drawback rates have undergone significant changes in sympathy with the changes in prices of inputs, duties etc. The rates have been revised upwards on most products.

These include leather-cum-synthetic / textile footwear upper, coir mats, parts of electrical apparatus made of copper / brass, handicraft / artware of stainless steel and certain dye & dye intermediates.

The Customs has already implemented EDI at 34 major customs locations covering about 85% of the imports and exports. Under the system, the shipping bill itself is treated as the claim for drawback. The drawback claim is processed on line and the amount is credited into the exporter’s account in the bank designated by the Customs immediately after “let export order” and filing of manifest by the carrier without any additional paper work. Commissioners have also been instructed to ensure that all grievances or problems raised by exporters on drawback claims are addressed within 72 hours and, if this is not possible in any case, to bring the matter to the notice of Member (Customs/Export Promotion) in CBEC. Exporters may also bring any delay beyond 72 hours to the notice of Member (Customs/Export Promotion)."
