    About RoDTEP scheme

    • It was introduced in January 2021 to replace an earlier merchandise export incentive scheme
    • The RoDTEP scheme rebates or refunds the embedded central, state, and local duties and taxes to the exporters that were so far not being refunded. 
      • the rebate is issued as a transferable electronic scrip by the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs.
    • It is based on the globally accepted principle that taxes should not be exported, and taxes and levies borne on the exported products should be either exempted or remitted to exporters.
    • It is meant to provide a ‘zero rating’ of exports or ensure that no domestic taxes are added to goods meant for export.
