Business Line reported inclusion of steel exports under the Remission of Duties and Taxes on Export Products is under active consideration. A senior Steel Ministry official told Business Line “The Commerce and Finance Ministries are looking into the matter. However, the bottlenecks remain. Inclusion in the scheme needs approval of the Finance Ministry as additional budgetary provisions is needed.” He added “Yes, steel exports are under active consideration for inclusion in RoDTEP ambit. But then there is limited scope because of the Budget allocation issues. So currently, the things are on standby. But as and when budgetary provisions are made and a new list is announced, steel could find a mention.” The RoDTEP scheme offers refunds against various embedded taxes to exporters across sectors such as automobiles and agricultural produce.
