In the first annual revision of Exim Policy 2002-07 (announced on 31st March 2003) a package of additional concessions is offered to SEZ s as noted below:
- Supplies from the domestic markets to SEZ s will now be eligible for Duty Entitlement Pass Book (DEPB) or drawback benefits and be free from central sales tax.
- Goods supplied to the domestic market by SEZ units will not attract the special additional duty of customs (SAD), making them 4% cheaper than imports.
- The government apparently banks on the SEZs to push exports. It will take all necessary steps for raising their contribution in promoting exports. For example, conceding a long pending demand of SEZs, sales from DTAs to SEZs are henceforth treated as exports while domestic sales of SEZs have been exempted from SAD.
- Foreign-bound passengers will now be allowed to take goods from SEZs to promote trade, tourism and exports. Also, domestic sales by units functioning in SEZs will now be exempt from special additional duty. The one-year restriction period for remittance of exports proceeds has also been removed for SEZ units.
