The Rebate of State and Central Taxes and Levies (RoSCTL) Scheme is eligible for the export of apparels and made-ups only, i.e., Chapter 61, 62 & 63. The RoSCTL scheme is effected from 07.03.2019 to 31.03.2020 as per Para 4.01 (c) of FTP 2015-20. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the RoSCTL scheme has been extended till 31.03.2021.
As we know, the USA has filed a complaint against India at the World Trade Organization (WTO). The complaint is that the Indian government gives undue benefits to Indian Exporter under export subsidies like the MEIS scheme, and it is against the WTO rules. Therefore, the Rebate of State and Central Taxes and Levies (RoSCTL) Scheme is a new scheme introduced by the Ministry of Commerce. Currently, RoSCTL scheme is only valid for garments and made-ups (i.e., Chapter 61, 62 & 63). Further, this scheme would be extended to all sectors.
The cabinet approved the RoSCTL Scheme to rebates all state and central taxes for garments and made-ups and replaced the existing scheme, i.e., Rebate of State Levies (RoSL) Scheme, which provides only rebates of state taxes. The Exporter will get RoSL Benefit till 06.03.2019 from customs.
As per Public Notice No. 58/2015-20 Dated 29.01.2020, Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS) has also been withdrawn for Export items falling under Chapter- 61, 62 & 63, w.e.f, 07.03.2019.
