ISLAMABAD (July 23 2004): The Central Board of Revenue (CBR) has decided to increase duty drawback rates on the export of wide range of polyester staple fibre-based textile products, including 100 percent polyester staple fibre yarn and polyester-viscose staple fibre blended yarn from July 1, 2004.

The government on Thursday announced that the revised duty drawback rates in the man-made fibre sector recently announced by the CBR are being reviewed. New improved drawback rates will be announced in a few days, which would be retrospective from July 1, 2004.

The textile sector strongly contested drastic reduction in duty drawback rates of PSF-based textile products and declared SRO 605 (I)/2004 as killer notification for the entire textile sector.

The enhanced duty drawback rates on PSF-based textile products were applicable up to June 30, 2004. Through a new notification, the rates were brought at par with the existing duty structure.

Keeping in view the demand of textile industry, the CBR has once again amended Schedule-II, Schedule-VI and Schedule-XXXVI of the standard SRO 412 (I)/2001 through a new notification for increasing rates on man-made fibre products.
