Sub: "Special drive Refund Fortnight" being undertaken by CBIC from 31st May, 2018  to 14th June, 2018

Dear Member,

Kindly refer to our earlier Circular No.ES/ 76 /2018-19 dated 31st May, 2018 informing about the wide publicity to "Special drive Refund Fortnight" being undertaken by Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) from 31st May, 2018  to 14th June, 2018.          

As you may be aware, Ministry of Finance is pro-actively carrying out the “Special Refund Fortnight” from 31st May, 2018 to 14th June, 2018. The Government has made a concerted effort wherein Customs, Central and State GST officers have been engaged even on holidays to provide for export refunds.

In this connection, we once again request all our member-exporters facing problems against pending refunds of GST/IGST to approach their jurisdictional tax offices during the special refund fortnight for refund of their refund claims submitted on or before April 30, 2018, which are still pending.

With regard to the above, the Council has received a communication from the Ministry of Commerce & Industry informing us that many of our exporters are not aware of the facility extended to them for clearing their pending refund claims.

In this connection, your kind attention is invited to Para 3 (B) (iv) of Circular No. 12/2018-Customs which states as under:

“3 B (iv) Where the aggregate IGST refund amount for the said period is upto Rs. 10 lacs, the   exporter shall submit  (a) proof of payment (self-certified copy of challans) of IGST payment to the concerned Customs office at the port of export.

 Where the aggregate IGST refund amount for the said period is more than Rs. 10  lacs,   the exporter shall submit  (a) proof of payment (self-certified copy of challans) of IGST to the concerned Customs office at the port of export along with (b) a certificate from chartered   Accountant that the shortfall amount has been liquidated.”

Members are once again requested to kindly avail the maximum benefit from the Special drive Refund Fortnight and produce the documents before the respective field formations as per CBIC Circular No 12 dated May 29, 2018 and CBIC Circular No 45/19/2018-GST dated May 30, 2018

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

S. BALARAJU
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
