Sub:  Customs (Import of Goods at Concessional Rate of Duty) Rules, 2017- Implementation/   Export procedure and sealing of containerized cargo

Dear Member,

We would like to inform you that CBEC has issued following circulars on the above subject.

 With the introduction of GST, Central Excise duty would not be applicable except on a few commodities like Petroleum products, Tobacco products etc. In view  of this Customs (Import of goods at concessional  rate of duty for manufacture of excisable goods) Rules, 2016 are being superseded   with  Customs  (Import  of  Goods  at Concessional Rate  of  Duty)  Rules,  2017.  The rules  shall  come   in  to   force   from   01.07.17.

GST has become operational from 01-07-2017. In the GST regime, the governing provisions related to exports are contained in section 16 of  the Integrated  Goods and Service Tax Act, 2017 (IGST Act).  Supplies of goods and services  for exports  have been  categorized as 'Zero Rated Supply' implying that goods could  be exported under bond or Letter of Undertaking without payment of  integrated  tax  followed  by claim of refund  of unutilized  input tax  credit or on payment of integrated  tax with provision  for  refund of the tax  paid.

For more information, members may kindly refer to the above Circulars and make note of the same.

Thanking you,

V. ANIL KUMAR
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
