(v) Only Authorisations under which similar duty exemption has been availed shall only be allowed to be clubbed. Such Authorisations may pertain to different financial years.

(vi) In case, exports are made outside EO period of any Authorisation, EO extension may be allowed before clubbing of such authorisation, as per Para 4.42 of Handbook of procedures on payment of composition fee.

(vii) Only such Advance Authorisations shall be clubbed where exports under all Authorisations have been made within the initial/ extended EO period of the earliest issued Authorisation.

(viii) Clubbing shall be permitted only when there is shortfall in fulfillment of export obligation occurred in first authorisation and excess exports are made in subsequent Authorisations. However, this condition may not be insisted when validity period (for import) of Authorisations runs concurrently and imports made in subsequent authorisation falls within validity period (for import) of first authorisation and such import made within validity period of first authorisation are on pro-rata, equal to or in excess to the extent of exports made in first authorisation. Subsequent Authorizations issued after expiry of validity of first Authorisation shall not be allowed to be clubbed.

(ix) Clubbing of Authorisations issued with different EO periods shall also be allowed.

(x) Accounting of exports made outside expiry of initial or extended EO period of earliest issued authorisation shall not be taken into consideration for EO fulfillment after clubbing of such Authorisations.

(xi) Inputs which are common in all Authorisations shall only be clubbed and duty free inputs shall be accounted for as per SION/Ad-Hoc Norms fixed by NC. In other words all inputs covered in all Authorisations need not be same.

(xiii) After clubbing, Authorisations shall for all purposes, be deemed to be one Authorisation. The value addition would be calculated on the basis of total CIF and total FOB arrived at after clubbing the Authorisations.

(xiv) No clubbing shall be permitted in respect of Authorisations where misrepresentation / fraud have come to the notice of RA. Further, no clubbing of Authorisations, where EODC/redemption letter has already been issued or adjudication orders have already been passed by RA/Customs Authority, shall be permitted.

2) Para 4.42 (d) is amended to read as under:

(d) Extension in export obligation period for Authorisations issued under Appendix-4J (issued under FTP 2015-20) shall be allowed for a period not more than the half of the stipulated export obligation period.

3) Sub-Para (g) is inserted in Para 4.49:

(g) Regularization of Bonafide default in the cases where Authorisation was issued for import of drugs from unregistered sources with pre import condition:

Import of drugs from unregistered sources issued with pre import condition shall be regularised in the following manner:

(i) The Authorisation holder shall submit documents showing consumption of full imported quantity as per norms. In case, there is shortfall in fulfilment of EO and unutilised imported quantity remains with the authorisation holder, the Authorisation holder shall either submit a certificate from the jurisdictional Central Excise / Customs Authority certifying destruction of the unutilised imported quantity in their presence or proof of re-export of the same to the same supplier in-terms of para 4.43A of HBP 2015-2020.

(ii) Exports made under free shipping bills/under same authorisation after expiry of EO period using unutilised quantity of drugs shall also be accepted in-lieu of submission of destruction certificate as stated in para (i) above, provided the exact description and technical characteristics of the drug exported matches with that of export item described in the Advance Authorisation. However, the Authorisation holder shall pay customs duty with applicable interest to the Customs Authority on unutilized quantity imported under Advance Authorisation. The exports made outside EO period shall only be considered for waiver of destruction certificate and not for waiver of liability of applicable duties and interest.

Effect of this Public Notice:

Amendments are made in Chapter-4 of Hand Book of Procedures 2015-2020, related to clubbing of Advance Authorisations, extension of Export Obligation period and regularisation of bonafide default in the cases where an Authorisation was issued for import of drugs from unregistered sources with pre import condition.
