Clarification on Customs & Central Excise notifications related to EOUs

EOU/EHTP/STP/BTP schemes are governed by Chapter 6 of Foreign Trade Policy (FTP), duly supported by the relevant Customs and Central Excise notifications. These notifications have now been amended in order to align them with the present Foreign Trade Policy (FTP), 2015-2020, as amended, as well as to remove redundancies that had crept in over the time on account of changes/supersession of certain other notifications mentioned therein and legal developments such as the introduction of GST and exempting the EOUs from the application of the Customs warehousing provisions.
