Dear Sir We have registered a company for export of agricultural products. We intend to export various types viz., grains, cereals, edible nuts, fruits, vegetables etc. We approached Sales Tax Officer, he said that "you need to mention each product in the application form". We informed that we can mention "export of agricultural & processed food products" but he is not agreeing. Where as in IEC application form we have mentioned activity as "import/export of agricultural and processed food products". The application has been submitted and waiting for IECode. What need to be mentioned in the application form of Sales Tax as well in the application form of "APEDA" Please advice. thanks v v n reddy
