RoDTEP SCHEME



Introduction to RoDTEP

The Remission of Duties and Taxes on Export Products (RoDTEP) scheme is a government initiative designed to refund duties and taxes incurred during the production or export process to exporters. This scheme aims to make Indian products more competitive in the global market by ensuring that local taxes are not added to export goods, effectively implementing a zero-rating for exports.

Objective of RoDTEP

The primary objective of the RoDTEP scheme is to enhance the competitiveness of Indian exports by:

• Refunding Embedded Taxes: Exporters are reimbursed for the duties and taxes that are not exempted or refunded under any other mechanism.
• Ensuring Zero Rating: Ensuring that no local taxes are added to export goods, making them more competitive in the international market.
• Supporting Exporters: Providing financial support to exporters, thereby promoting the growth of exports from India.

Key Features of RoDTEP

• Budget Allocation: The RoDTEP scheme has been allocated a budget of ₹15,070 crore for the fiscal year 2024-25.
• Comprehensive Coverage: The scheme covers all sectors, ensuring that a wide range of products can benefit from the refund mechanism.
• Automated Refunds: Refunds under RoDTEP are processed in an automated manner, ensuring transparency and efficiency.
• Compliance with WTO Norms: The scheme is designed to be compliant with World Trade Organization (WTO) norms, avoiding disputes related to export subsidies.

Importance of Zero Rating for Exports

Zero rating of exports is a crucial policy for promoting Indian goods in the global market. It means that no local taxes are added to export goods, allowing Indian products to be more price-competitive. Ensuring zero rating through mechanisms like RoDTEP is essential for:

• Enhancing Competitiveness: Making Indian exports more attractive by reducing the cost burden on exporters.
• Boosting Export Growth: Encouraging higher export volumes by providing financial relief to exporters.
• Supporting Economic Growth: Contributing to the overall economic growth of the country by promoting export-oriented industries.

Current Issues and Recommendations

During a pre-Budget consultation, the Federation of Indian Exporters’ Organisations (FIEO) highlighted the need to prioritize zero rating for exports. FIEO President Ashwani Kumar urged the Finance Ministry not to let fiscal austerity measures hinder the allocation for the RoDTEP scheme. He emphasized that ensuring adequate funding for RoDTEP is vital for maintaining the competitiveness of Indian exports.

Conclusion

The RoDTEP scheme is a critical tool for promoting Indian exports by refunding embedded taxes and ensuring zero rating. Adequate funding and prioritization of this scheme are essential for enhancing the competitiveness of Indian products in the global market and supporting the growth of the export sector.
