Duty Drawback Training / Workshop / Seminar


1. Duty Drawback Scheme:


DEPB scheme is withdrawn by the Government of India. Alternate scheme that is available at present is Duty Drawback Scheme. Department of Revenue has shifted items which were listed in the DEPB Rate Schedule to Drawback Rate Schedule, along with few general conditions. This requires exporters to understand the Drawback Scheme thoroughly. Considering this requirement, we have designed this programme, coverage of which is as under:Â


– Legal framework
– Meaning and scope
– Types of Drawback
– General Notes applicable for Drawback Scheme – important concepts
– Claiming All Industry Rate of Drawback – concept and procedure

– Drawback on re-export of imported goods

With stagnant markets in Euro Zone and USA, India is trying to get more market access by entering into FTAs with many emerging markets.
