Sub: Extension of the validity period of Export Performance Certificates
This is with reference to the Council’s Circular No. ES/138/2020-21 dated 15th May, 2020 whereby CBIC had issued Notification No.23/2020- Customs dated 14th May, 2020 extending the period of validity of existing Export Performance Certificates for FY 2019-20 up to 30th September, 2020.
In this connection, we would like to inform you that the Council had sent a request to the Drawback Department seeking extension of the validity of the issuance of the Export Performance Certificate for another three months i.e till 30th June, 2020 or even further, considering the period of the lockdown since many of our members may be benefitted by the extension of the date.
Subsequently, yesterday i.e. 15th May, 2020, the Council received a communication from the Drawback Department informing about the Department of Revenue's acceptance to our request and have extended the validity of Export Performance Certificates for FY 2019-20 up to 30th September, 2020.
Members may avail the benefit of the Scheme extended by the Department.
