MEIS–Online application and Registration of Scrips at the Customs

Circular No. ES/279/2020-21                                           29th July, 2020   


To: Members of the Council


Sub.: MEIS–Online application and Registration of Scrips at the Customs


Dear Member,


O/o DGFT has issued an Office Memorandum vide F. No.01/61/180/288/AM20/PC-3/1343 dated 27th July, 2020 (copy enclosed) regarding registration of MEIS Scrips for shipping bills with Let Export Order dated 1st April, 2020 onwards at Customs Ports.


In this connection, it may be informed that the online MEIS module on the DGFT website has been blocked on 23rd July, 2020. Therefore, the online applications for MEIS for exports with LEO date 1st April, 2020 will not be accepted till further advice. This is due to the fact that funds allocated for MEIS for the year 2020-21 has been exhausted and DGFT has sought additional funds from the Department of Revenue. However, a decision from the Department of Revenue for additional funds allocation is awaited. 


Further, the Customs department has stopped registration of duty credit scrips issued under the MEIS on shipping bills for which the LEO has been issued from 1st April, 2020 onwards.


Members may kindly make a note of the above.


Thanking you,


Yours faithfully,
