As you know, once after shipping of goods, most of the exporters discount or negotiate the export bills with bank by submitting necessary export documents like Bill of Lading / Airway Bill, Invoice, Packing list and other required export documents. Most of the government supports exporters by extending financial assistance by providing them loan against export documents with very low rate of interest. Bank is expected to receive amount of such exports from overseas buyer on due date agreed mutually between buyer and seller. However, if export bills are not realized even after 30 days of its maturity, bank withdraws the facility of low interest rate by delinking the bills by converting commercial rate of interest. This is called crystallization of export bills. Crystallization of bills is also called delinking of export bills.
