Attention of the Exporters, Custom Brokers and all concerned are invited to the BoardCircular No. 49/2017-Customs dated 12th December, 2017,

(i) With respect to Countervailing Duties which are leviable under section 9 of the Customs Tariff Act, the Board clarified that these are rebatable as Drawback in terms of Section 75 of the Customs Act. Since Countervailing Duties are not taken into consideration while fixing All Industry Rates of Duty Drawback, the Drawback of such Countervailing Duties can be claimed under an application for Brand Rate under Rule 6 or Rule 7 of the Customs, Central Excise Duties and Service Tax Drawback Rules, 1995 and/or the Customs and Central Excise Duties Drawback Rules, 2017, as the case may be. This would necessarily mean that drawback shall be admissible only where the inputs that suffered Countervailing Duties were actually used in the goods exported as confirmed by the verification conducted for fixation of Brand Rate.

(ii) Where imported goods subject to Countervailing Duties are exported out of the country as such, then the Drawback payable under Section 74 of the Customs Act, 1962 would also include the incidence of Countervailing Duties as part of total duties paid, subject to fulfilment of other conditions.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.

    However think of if you added some great pictures or
    video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    images and clips, this site could certainly be one of the best
    in its niche. Very good blog!
