Proof of export are required to be submitted within 180 days from the date of Let Export Order as mentioned in the Shipping Bills or in the Airway Bill as the case may be.
Rebate claim has to file within 180 days.
Dear Mr Pradeep,
Proof of export needs to be submitted within 180 days from the date of clearance from the factory , ie date of ARE1 ( Ref Notification No.42/2001) and not from LEO date. Time limit for rabate claim is one year from the date of LEO
Thanks for correcting me.
In continuation to the above:-
Notification No.42/2001-Central Excise (N.T.)
(ii) that goods shall be exported within six months from the date on which these were cleared for export from the factory of the production or the manufacture or warehouse or other approved premises within such extended period as the Assistant Commissioner of Central Excise or Deputy Commissioner of Central Excise or Maritime Commissioner may in any particular case allow.
In Clipsal Industries v CCE (2004 (9) TMI 417 - CESTAT, NEW DELHI) = 2004 (174) ELT 188 (CESTAT SMB), it was held that the requirement is that goods should be exported within six months. There is no requirement that the proof of export must be submitted within six months.
Kindly refer to Chapter 7 para No 4.2.1 of CBEC Manual wherein it is said that proof of export should be submitted to the Range Officer within a period of 6 months from the date of clearance of goods from the factory
I HAVE ALSO HEARD THAT TO SUBMIT PROOF OF EXPORT TIME LIMIT IS ONE YEAR. CAN YOU TELL ME LATEST NOTIFICATION.
