      The scheme shall apply with effect from 1st January, 2021 for the reimbursement of duties and taxes to all eligible exports of goods. The RoDTEP scheme would refund to exporters the embedded Central, State and Local duties/taxes that were not being refunded, placing our exports at a disadvantage.

      The RoDTEP Scheme aims to refund all those hidden taxes and levies for example:

      1. Central and State taxes on fuel (Petrol, Diesel, CNG, PNG, and coal cess, etc.) used for transportation
      2. The duty levied by the state on electricity used for manufacturing,
      3. Mandi tax levied by APMC’s
      4. Toll tax & Stamp duty on the impot-export documentation etc.


      On 1st February 2020, the Finance Minister introduced RoDTEP Scheme for the exporters to make Indian products cost competitive and to create a level playing field for them in the global markets. The scheme will be implemented from January 2021 and will be continued till 2025 thereafter replacing the existing MEIS Scheme.


      Government announced RoDTEP rates on 17th August 2021 covering most of the sectors. However, Pharmaceutical, Chemical, and Iron & Steel sectors were completely excluded from RoDTEP Incentives.

      On 7th December 2022, Government extended RoDTEP benefits to Pharmaceutical, Chemical, and Iron & Steel sectors.

      The rate of reward varies from sector to sector ranging from 0.5% to 4.3%.


      Duty Exemption

      Exporter must indicate clear intent for claim at the time of filing Shipping bills along with an undertaking that no undue benefit would be availed.

      Export Obligation

      System would automatically calculate the RoDTEP amount for the item where the RoDTEP was claimed as per rates that will be notified. No change in the claim will be allowed after the filing of the EGM.


      An exporter desirous of availing the benefit shall declare his intention for each export item in the Shipping Bills/ Bill of Export.

      Based on the declaration system will process claims eligible for RoDTEP.

      The Shipping Bills with RoDTEP/ Drawback Claim will either come to the officer for processing or be routed directly to the exporter’s scroll queue without any officer intervention. An option to suspend RoDTEP Scrip will also be made available after scroll generation is enabled.


      Scrip can be used for payment of basic custom duty on imported goods. The credits can also be transferred to other importers.
