An alternative option of Drawback is also available under which products made out of duty paid inputs are first exported and thereafter refund of duty is claimed. Drawback rates for standard and common type of products are pre-notified. (All Industry Drawback Rate Schedule) and updated every year after the Budget. For products not figuring in the All Industry Schedule or where the All the Industry rate is below 80% of the exporter’s claimed rate, the exporter has to get a brand rate fixed by furnishing the prescribed data. Anti-dumping duty is rebatable only by way of special brand rate of drawback provided the input used has actually borne this duty. Drawback for inputs is permissible not only in case of manufacture but also for processing or other operations for export of goods. For imported products re-exported as such, 98% refund of customs duty paid, including anti-dumping duty, is available as Drawback.
