Dear Sir, I am a Merchant Exporter. In a direct sale / purchase transaction, a kenyan company has purchased the plant and machinery of a sugar plant. The kenyan company has made the payment for the plant and machinery to the Bankers who had hypothecated the plant and machinery to the sellers. Bank and Seller have issued the NOC for the Kenyan Buyer to dismantle and take the plant and machinery out of India. The Kenyan Buyer has contracted with me to get the machinery dismantled and ship out of India and again do the erection in Kenya. Can I file the Shipping Bill and Export this plant and machinery on Free Shipping Bill Basis when the transaction of payment for the machinery does not involve my company. Can you please revert.
