Rebate of duty on goods cleared from DTA to SEZ


Benefit of rebate of duty on goods cleared from DTA to SEZ


Rebate of duty on goods cleared from DTA to SEZRefund of accumulated CENVAT credit when goods are cleared from DTA to SEZ.


According to the SEZ Act, supply of goods from DTA to the SEZ constitutes export. Further, as per section 51 of the SEZ Act, the provisions of the SEZ Act shall have over riding effect over provisions of any other law in case of any inconsistency. Section 53 of the SEZ Act makes an SEZ a territory outside the customs territory of India. It is in line of these provisions that rule 30 (1) of the SEZ rules, 2006 provides that the DTA supplier supplying goods to the SEZ shall clear the goods either under bond or as duty paid goods under claim of rebate on the cover of ARE-1.


It was in view of these provisions that the DGEP vide circulars No. 29/2006-customs dated 27/12/2006 and No. 6/2010 dated 19/03/2010 clarified that rebate under rule 18 of the Central Excise Rules, 2002 is admissible for supply of goods made from DTA to SEZ. The position as explained in there circulars does not change after amendments made vide Notification No. 6/2015-CE (NT) and 8/2015-CE (NT) both dated 01.03.2015, since the definition of export, already given in rule 18 of Central Excise Rules, 2002 has only been made more explicit by incorporating the definition of export as given in the Customs Act, 1962. Since SEZ is deemed to be outside the Customs territory of India, any licit clearances of goods to an SEZ from the DTA will continue to be export and therefore be entitled to the benefit of rebate under rule 18 of CER, 2002 and of refund of accumulated CENVAT credit under rule 5 of CCR, 2004, as the case may be.
