As far as the traditions are considered, he said that to ease the financial burden on importers, Merchandise Export from India Scheme and service export from India scheme scrips ought to be permitted to use for the payment of GST.
“The present law does not accommodate way of guaranteeing refund of countervailing duty (‘CVD’) and exceptional addition duty (‘SAD’) paid after 1 July 2017 on the non-satisfaction of export obligation where imports were made before the execution of GST.
