Procedure for claiming Duty Drawback

If shipping bill was filed at a customs location where in no EDI facility  is available, triplicate copy of shipping bill  with certain documents to support the application for draw back need to be filed.  The details of such documents have been mentioned in drawback rules 1995 of Customs department.  You can approach respective customs department and collect details of documents under the product which you intend to claim draw back. If such requisite information/documents are not filed, such application for drawback will be returned to exporter advising to reapply with required documents.  However, the shipment will not be stopped due to this reason.
