Government extends foreign trade policy by one year.

Subject: Government extends foreign trade policy by one year
New Delhi: The government on Tuesday extended the existing foreign trade policy for one year till March 2021 amid the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic outbreak and the lockdown to contain its spread.

“The existing foreign trade policy 2015-20 which is valid up to March 31 this year is extended up to March 31, 2021,” the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said in a notification.

As per the notification, the validity of various import-linked export schemes such as Duty Free Import Authorisation (DFIA) and Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG) have been extended by one year.

Under EPCG, exporters can import certain amount of capital goods at zero duty for upgrading technology related with exports while DFIA allows them to import certain goods like sugar at zero duty.

The government also extended the exemptions to imports against Advance Authorisations for physical exports from Integrated Tax and Compensation Cess upto March 31, 2021. Advance authorisation is issued to allow duty free import of inputs, which is physically incorporated in export product. The same exemption has been given to imports from bonded warehouse in domestic tariff area or from international exhibition held in India.

However, the government will take a call later on continuing the Service Exports from India Scheme for services rendered after April 1.

Exports from India touched $292.9 billion in the 11 months to February 2020, while imports were $436.03 billion.
