The Home Textile Exporters’ Welfare Association (HEWA) has sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s intervention for release of pending dues under the RoSCTL, a taxes and levies rebate scheme. In March, the government had announced the Rebate of State and Central Taxes and Levies on Export of Garments and Made-ups (RoSCTL) scheme which provides rebate on all embedded taxes on exports, but HEWA claims exporters are yet to receive the refunds from this scheme which are pending since last eight months.

“As the matter is still under consideration of the PM Office and we are hopeful that we will get a positive response at the earliest,” HEWA Director Anant Srivastava told PTI.  He said if the pending RoSCTL amount is released at the earliest it will be feasible for Indian Exporters to ship their consignments on time.
