The Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) on May 15, 2019, has provided three months time window to apply for Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS) for shipping bills with HS Codes which were harmonized and notified under MEIS Appendix 3B, Table 2 after a delay.

DGFT informed that Customs Server has now transmitted such shipping bills to the DGFT server and the necessary changes have been made thereby making the shipping bills available for application under MEIS. For such Shipping bills, the applicant can take the benefit of the para 3.15 (a) (ii) of the Hand Book of Procedures (HBP) 2015-20, which allows three months time for filing claims under MEIS form the date of upload of EDI shipping bills onto the DGFT Server by customs, before the late cut provisions are applicable. Therefore, all the applicants with shipping bills with the relevant codes are requested to apply for MEIS claim, well within the time window of three months, to avoid any late cut.
