Grant of Status Holders Incentive Scrip Benefit to Textile Garments

[DGFT Policy Circular No. 33 dated 19th May 2010]

Sub: Grant of Status Holders Incentive Scrip benefit to textile garments.

This has reference to Para 3.16.4 of the FTP 2009-14 under which Textiles is one of the sectors entitled to Status Holders Incentive Scrip @ 1% of FOB value of exports made during 2009-10 and 2010-11.

2.   The Apparel Export Promotion Council has informed that some garment exporters are facing difficulty in submitting their applications for availing Status Holders Incentive Scrip benefit as some Regional Authorities are insisting upon a clarification from the DGFT Head Quarters to the effect that garments are covered under the Textile Sector under Para 3.16.4 of the FTP 2009-14.

3.   It is, hereby, clarified that under Para 3.16.4 of the FTP 2009-14, Textile Sector covers textile garments as well.
