India mulls extending RoSCTL to other textile products

India is mulling over extending the Rebate of State and Central Taxes and Levies (RoSCTL) for the garments and made-ups sector to other textile products because of the urgency to do away with the merchandise export incentive scheme (MEIS), which is against World Trade Organisation rules. The issue was discussed by exporters in a meeting with two union ministers recently.

Other issues raised by the textiles industry at the meeting with Textiles Minister Smriti Irani and Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal in New Delhi included expeditious clearance of the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS) and tackling rising garment imports from Bangladesh.

The Indian cabinet approved the RoSCTL scheme in March to rebate all embedded state and central taxes and levies for apparel and made-ups, through an information technology-driven scrip system. The scheme replaced the existing Rebate of State Levies (RoSL) scheme that offered rebate of only certain state taxes.

The embedded taxes include central excise duty on fuel used in transportation, embedded central goods and services tax (CGST) paid on inputs like pesticides and fertilisers used in production of raw cotton, purchases from unregistered dealers, inputs for transport sector and embedded CGST and compensation cess on coal used in electricity production.

The two ministers also agreed to the expeditious clearance of funds for exporters under the TUFS, address GST issues on textiles and clothing, including inverted duty structure in the man-made fibre sector, and reduce hank yarn obligation from 30 per cent to 15 per cent.

India’s textiles and clothing exports declined from $38.60 billion in 2014 to $37.12 billion in 2018 while imports increased from $5.85 billion to $7.31 during the same period.
