The Remission of Duties or Taxes on Export Products (RoDTEP) Scheme has been formed by the Indian government. It is a scheme that replaces the existing MEIS (Merchandise Exports from India Scheme) scheme for the export of goods from India.
It aims to reimburse the taxes and duties incurred by the exporters like the local taxes, coal cess, electricity duties, mandi tax, and the fuel used for transportation that is not exempted nor refunded under any other existing scheme. The rebate shall be claimed as a percentage of the FOB (Freight on Board) value of exports.
The government of India has approved this scheme recently, and it shall be notified in a phased manner, and accordingly, items shall be moved from the existing scheme of MEIS to RoDTEP with appropriate monitoring and audit mechanism. This scheme shall incentivize exporters at a cost of INR 50000 crore to the exchequer.
