The commerce ministry is working closely with other departments to resolve exporters’ problems, including those related to the GST, Union minister Suresh Prabhu today said.
“We are working very closely with other ministries to address problems faced by exporters. Discussed with (Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley ji again for GST and exports,” the commerce and industry minister said in a tweet.
Exporters body Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) has raised issues related to blockage of working capital and timely refunds of GST.
The country’s exports recorded a double digit growth of 10.29 per cent after a gap of three months to $23.81 billion in August, mainly on account of rise in shipments of chemicals, petroleum and engineering products.
