Textile goods drawback extended up to June 2004

ISLAMABAD (June 10 2003) : Keeping intact extraordinarily high duty drawback on textile products as compared to the actual import duty, the Central Board of Revenue (CBR) has extended the compensatory duty drawback on the export of blended fabrics, garments and blended yarn from June 30, 2003 to June 30, 2004.

Official sources told Business Recorder here on Monday that the enhanced duty drawback facility on the export of said products was going to expire on June 30, 2003 and CBR was mulling to slash the rates bringing them at par with the actual duty paid at the import stage in budget 2003-04.

However, the CBR extended the period of duty drawback from June 30-2003 to June 30, 2004 without curtailing the rates.

The CBR, taking into account government policy to compensate exporters in the textile sector, extended the facility for another year.

The authorities have amended Schedules II and VI of the standard SRO.412(I)/2001 through an SRO 489(I)/2003 to implement the decision.
