Garment exporters gets interim relief with Govt announcing RoSL

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-08-02 10:00:00 – New Delhi

The Ministry of Textile on Tuesday in New Delhi announced transitional rates for Remission of State Levies (RoSL) of garments & made-ups, exporters of garment & made- up will get ample relieve and support.

The Government has announced that as a transitional arrangement for the period 1st July 2017 to 30th September 2017, the exporter may claim Remission of State Levies (RoSL) at the rates prior to introduction of GST.

The Union Cabinet, in June last year, had approved Rs 6,000 crore special package for employment generation and promotion of exports in the textile and apparel sector. The special scheme for remission of state levies by the Textiles Ministry for three years was part of the package.

Under the new Goods and Service Tax (GST) regime, the government had temporarily retained this important element.

The textile industry had recently urged the government to continue with the Remission of State Levies (RoSL) for three years as committed in the special package because the scheme has benefited the exports of garments.

Exports of garments have gone up over 31 percent in April this year, over corresponding month last year.

The ministry disbursed Rs 400 crore under RoSL to exporters in the last year and provisioned Rs 1,554 crore in the current fiscal for giving supports to the exporters.

Small exporters are the majority beneficiaries of the RoSL scheme and it has so far helped boost shipments from the labour-intensive segment. According to exporters from the textile sector, the RoSL scheme is in line with the principle of ‘zero rating’ of export items.

The scheme for Rebate of State Levies (RoSL) aimed at making garment exports competitive in the international market.
