Products will be able to become globally competitive
Continuing RoSCTL for textiles and made-up products like bed sheets, blankets, carpets, exemptions on taxes and duties will enable these products to be globally competitive. Under this scheme a duty credit scrip is issued to the exporters for the value of taxes and duties in the exported product. Exporters can use it to pay basic customs duty for import of equipment, machinery or any other raw material. These duty credit scrips can be traded i.e. if the exporter does not need it for his personal use then he can give it to another importer.
