The Cabinet also approved a scheme for reimbursement of taxes and duties to exporters to give a boost to outbound shipments.

The reimbursement of taxes such as duty on power charges, VAT on fuel in transportation, farm sector, captive power generation, mandi tax, stamp duty and central excise duty on fuel used in transportation is expected to make Indian products competitive in global markets.

The sectors and products under the remission of duties and taxes on export products (RoDTEP) will be notified in a phased manner and the MEIS benefit for those sectors and items will be withdrawn.
